Wealthcare staff raise £2,000 for Bury Hospice

Wealthcare have raised just over £2,000 for Bury Hospice – our charity of the year for 2015.
Kylie Flett, client services executive, led the way by completing six sponsored 5km races …

Her colleagues contributed with activities including a skydive from 10,000ft, dress-down Fridays, and running an office tuck shop with all profits going to the hospice.

Wealthcare joint managing director Stephen Cainer said he was delighted with his staff’s efforts.

“I’m extremely proud of the team for their dedication and the energy they have put into raising money for such a worthwhile cause. 

“It’s been great fun and extremely rewarding. All of the staff have contributed, and we’re very pleased we have managed to raise such a large sum.

“As a company, we believe it’s essential to make a positive contribution to our society, and Bury Hospice makes a real difference to our local community.

“We will continue to raise money for good causes and are looking at other local charities we can support in 2016.”

Bury Hospice has 12 beds and costs almost £2m a year to run, the equivalent of £5,000 per day.

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

Sarah Monaghan, 25, mortgage administrator, was our fundraising co-ordinator and handed over a cheque for £2,003.53 to Vickie Butcher, Bury Hospice’s fundraising manager.

Sarah, who lives in Ramsbottom, was diagnosed with cervical cancer after joining Wealthcare as an apprentice in 2013. She had two months of treatment and is now clear of the illness.

She said: “To anyone fighting this disease, I say be strong and think positively. Take any support you are offered from family, friends and professionals, and give yourself something good to focus on when your battle is over.”

Vickie said: “Bury Hospice relies heavily on the community for a large part of its income.

“One of the most important sources is the business community, and Wealthcare’s support has been worth its weight in gold.

“We are extremely grateful to Wealthcare and its staff for the fabulous commitment and support they have given us over the past 12 months.”

 

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.
