Brunel supports The Africa Trust

We at Brunel Capital Partners are fully aware of the health benefits with regards to staying hydrated and it is for this reason that we invested in a water cooler from AquAid.

Because of our relationship with AquAid we have been donating monthly to The Africa Trust. In doing so, these donations have been used to build fresh drinking water wells in areas in Africa where it is needed most, like in schools and villages.

We are proud to announce that Brunel Capital Partners will be installing an ‘Elephant Pump’ in Africa. This is essential to ensure clean and safe drinking water is part of the lives of those less fortunate than us.

We hope through various activities such as supporting The Africa Trust and projects like The Elephant Pump, we can bring opportunity and hope to people by helping to break the cycle of poverty.

We look forward to receiving photos of our well in due course and our continued support of AquAid.

End Of Tax Year – Important Information

Individual Savings Accounts


The overall personal limit for an Individual Savings Account (ISA) for the current tax year is £11,280 and this will increase to £11,520 for the new tax year commencing on April 6th. It’s important to note that if you are only contributing to a cash ISA then the maximum is exactly half the overall allowance – so £5,640 and £5,760 respectively. The other key point is that if you don’t use your ISA allowances for this tax year then they are lost – they can’t be ‘carried forward’ to the next tax year.
