A skydive from 10,000 ft and dress-down Fridays are among the events planned by staff at financial advisory firm Wealthcare to raise money for Bury Hospice, its first ever charity of the year.

Jo Flynn, 23, who is Wealthcare’s marketing executive and personal assistant to the directors, has registered for the skydive on Saturday, March 21, while cash will be collected from every employee taking part in dress-down Fridays, which will be held monthly.Meanwhile, a team from Wealthcare is preparing to enter the 10k Great Manchester Run on Sunday, May 10.

Stephen Cainer, joint managing director of Wealthcare, said: “Bury Hospice plays a vital role within the community and we’re delighted to select it as our first charity of the year.

“We hope our decision will encourage others to follow suit and become involved in the fundraising process.

“As Wealthcare grows, we feel it’s important to put something back into the community and share our success with a worthy cause that needs public support.“

As well as staff taking part in sponsored events, Wealthcare will host the Bury Hospice logo on its website and social media channels, which will carry updates about forthcoming hospice events.

Wealthcare has also set up its own Virgin Money Giving page for the hospice.

Bury Hospice has 12 beds and costs £3m a year to run, the equivalent of almost £8,000 per day.

It receives just 10 per cent of its funding from the NHS, with the rest generated by its five shops, a lottery, legacy, events, individual and corporate donations.

Jacqui Comber, chief executive of Bury Hospice, said: “We are delighted that Wealthcare has selected Bury Hospice as its first charity of the year, and we look forward to working with the team throughout 2015.

“Wealthcare’s support in the form of fund-raising events and promoting the work of the hospice will make a real difference.”

A SAMPLE OF OUR PARTNERS…

My wife and I are now both retired and have relied on Wealthcare for guidance and advice on pensions, our investments and on a wide range of financial issues. We have never been failed and the advice has always been prompt, reliable, professional and, equally as important, explained in non financial jargon thereby making understanding so much simpler.

Mr & Mrs Franks - Individual Clients

Both myself and my business partner Andrew have used Wealthcare for a number of years now and cannot recommend them highly enough. They've arranged plans which protect us in several areas including life insurance, critical injury and key man cover, Stephen also organised for a shareholders' agreement to be put in place for extra peace of mind.

Sizzle Creative Agency Limited

It wasn’t hard to choose Wealthcare from the list of brokers eager to win our business. From the very start, they sought to understand our company’s particular needs and (importantly) how I choose to work. They listen and deliver. Available to discuss any query, they are friendly, easy to communicate with, responsive, and always looking to go the extra mile to meet our expectations. How could I do anything other than heartily recommend this excellent organisation.

Timpson Limited

The Healthcare team have been a pleasure to deal with as they have made the process of sorting out and managing our PMI straightforward and simple. The Claims and Admin staff are very knowledgeable and will always go the extra mile.
