Giving back matters

We’re passionate about giving back to the community and helping those who need it where we can. We do this on both a company level and an individual level to engage with causes close to our heart. Here’s an overview of just some of the charitable initiatives we’ve been involved in recently.

 

The Openwork Foundation

Homeless Support Project (HSP)

Breast Cancer Now

Supporting causes close to our clients

We are also proud to support a selection of charities as nominated by our clients. In the last year we have donated to the following causes:

  • The Stroke Association
  • Cancer Research UK
  • Centrepoint Homeless Charity

Our Team’s Challenges

Tom Kennedy took part in a tandem skydive under the “Shine for Sian” campaign for the Lancashire Mind charity, raising over £1000.

“Shine for Sian was created by Paul ‘Pud’ Waterhouse after the loss of their beloved daughter, Sian. Essentially, all the money raised is spent in my hometown and the surrounding areas in schools and helping adults improve and manage their mental health, wellbeing, building resilience and coping mechanisms. It was such an amazing experience and gave me such a great sense of pride to be able to do this for such a fantastic and necessary cause.”

Supporting Charities Overseas

Here, at KBA The Financial Planning Company, we are aware that keeping our team hydrated will aid them to perform at their very best throughout the work day.

As a result, we decided to invest in http://www.aquaidwatercoolers.co.uk water coolers from AquAid.

Our unique relationship with AquAid has also given our company the opportunity to help those less fortunate than ourselves, because with each purchase an automatic donation is made to The Africa Trust.

These funds are used to build ‘Elephant Pumps’ – a modified version of an age-old Chinese rope pulley system. As a gift from us, our elephant pump was completed in August 2022 and is a source of clean and fresh drinking water for many.

To date AquAid have built over 8,000 such Elephant Pumps across parts of Liberia, Malawi, Mozambique and Zimbabwe; and have donated in excess of £18 million to charity.
