Gresham Team Give the Gift of Christmas to Local Children

Xmas gifts 2017

The Gresham team has bought a bumper crop of presents this year for a local children’s charity in our annual Christmas campaign. In this fourth year of supporting Wythenshawe Barnardo’s Children’s Centres, we have been able to buy gifts for 13 children to hopefully bring some festive cheer on Christmas Day.

Our festive charity gift campaign started in 2014 after Samantha, who is a Paraplanner on our technical team, suggested that instead of spending money on novelty gifts for each other, we combined our secret Santa spend to contribute to a more meaningful cause.

Wanting to keep things local, we found Wythenshawe Barnardo’s Children’s Centres. Each year, the Barnardo’s teams at the Children’s Centres in Wythenshawe supply us a list of children from disadvantaged backgrounds, along with their ages. One afternoon in the run up to Christmas, our team go out shopping to buy gifts for each of the children listed. The gifts are then delivered to the children by the Barnardo’s team in Wythenshawe in time for Christmas Day.

This year, with a little help from Gresham’s Directors, our charitable fund was £500, which allowed us to buy gifts for 13 children. In addition, this year we were also able to buy some essential food and drink items to top up the food banks also based at the various Barnardo’s Children’s Centres in Wythenshawe.

Morven Millar, Director at Gresham, commented:

“This is the fifth year we’ve supported our local Barnardo’s Children’s Centres and it’s a tradition we’re proud to be able to uphold. Our team love getting involved and going to buy the gifts for the children, who might otherwise not receive anything at Christmas time.

“Amongst the hustle and bustle of this time of the year, we should all take a moment to reflect on how lucky we are and spare a thought, a bit of money and some time for those that are less fortunate”.

  • 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.
