Gresham Take on Manchester 10K for Headway

Gresham take on 10k rectangle

A team from Gresham Wealth Management is taking on the Great Manchester 10K this year in aid of a North West charity.

Alison Reeves, Samantha Brannigan, Becky Sugden, Daniel Ardern, Matthew Young, Chris Dent, Emma Young and Charlotte Young will all don their running shoes on 20th May 2018 to fundraise for Headway Blackpool Wyre & Fylde.

Although it hasn’t been running weather of late, the team have still been keen to get themselves ready for the big day. With only two months to go until the big day, training is underway and fundraising has now commenced!

The team has chosen to support Headway after one of Gresham’s Directors became involved in working with the charity. Jonathan Young became involved with supporting the charity in 2016 after he was invited to join Headway as a Director and Trustee.

Jonathan commented:

“Becoming involved with Headway has opened my eyes to the everyday struggles brain injury sufferers have to contend with. A severe brain injury can come as the result of a traumatic accident or sudden illness – something that any of us could potentially experience out of the blue at any point in our lives.

“Whilst treatment is initially available to survivors of brain injury, access to ongoing support ad therapy is very limited. The work that Headway does in helping to fill in the gap by providing social and professional services for members is invaluable to its members.”

The Headway Blackpool Wyre & Fylde branch was formed in 2010 when Patrons Ian and Karen Kendrick’s son suffered a brain injury and was not able to travel the distance to other Headway groups or branches. Since then, the charity has grown in the services it provides and became an independent registered charity in 2014.

Running regular sessions for its members, including bimonthly drop-ins, annual events and days out, as well as access to professional services such as anger management, relaxation and physiotherapy, Headway’s services are a great support to both the members and their families – who often also become affected by the ongoing effects of their loved ones’ injuries. Additional money from fundraising will help to increase the support on offer to brain injury survivors and their families across the Fylde coast.

  • Keyman Protection

    The death or prolonged illness of a key employee can put your business under financial strain. Keyman insurance compensates a business for the financial loss brought about by death or long term illness of a key employee.

    It provides a valuable cash injection to the business which can help with a potential loss of turnover and/or to provide funds to replace the key person.

  • Shareholder/Partnership Protection

    One of the great risks of a partnership or limited company is that one of your colleagues may die, with their share of the business passing to someone else. That person may have little interest in the business or be unable to meet the requirements of running the business. Equally a partner or shareholder who suffers a serious illness may not want to continue in the business after treatment and look to be compensated for their exit from the business.

  • Personal Injury Trusts

    Without a personal injury trust in place, you can lose entitlement to present and future means-tested state benefits, including local authority contributions to the cost of long-term care. We offer simple, jargon free advice to check if a personal injury trust is required on receipt of a claim, generally at no cost to you.
  • Retirement Planning

    Retirement Planning is a complex area which means different things to different people. How you plan for retirement can be wide and varied, but it must be planned for well in advance.

    You may have existing pension plans in place, like a company pension or personal pension plan or perhaps you’re just starting to save. Whatever your situation, Gresham Wealth Management Ltd can provide the right advice to create a retirement plan that’s tailor-made for you.

  • Client Testimonials

    My current investments are well on the positive side and I do thank you for your care and management of my financial affairs. I simply wouldn’t know how to manage them myself, and feel secure and confident knowing you are looking after these matters so professionally.
    Morven’s guidance about pensions and investments has provided us with excellent returns, even during the recent turbulent financial times. She has been a helpful and friendly advisor for many years and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her.
    On behalf of Walk & Talk Group, I would like to thank you for the most informative, enjoyable and appropriate presentation you gave. Members found the session of great value and very useful.
    I’m really impressed by how responsive you have all been to get this through against such a tight timescale.
    Before I chose Gresham I spoke to a number of IFA’s but none of them gave me the same confidence I had when I spoke to Morven. Everything, both written and spoken, is explained in an easy to understand way. All my pensions have been dealt with extremely efficiently and I am very happy with the service I have received from everyone at Gresham.
    Just a big thank you for all you have done for our family. We do appreciate it.
    Thank you so much again for your time and brilliant advice.
    Thanks again for your advice, you have given me the kick I needed to take control and I’m very grateful for that.
    A very personalised service… All advice is tailored to my needs with great consideration to issues I may not have thought of myself. I feel confident about my future finances.
    We are both very grateful for the time you spent with us in explaining various options. We certainly feel we now both have a much better understanding of our situation & the decisions which we need to consider moving forward.
