Welcome to your summer update from Brunel Capital partners. With temperatures soaring in the past few weeks, we hope you’ve been able to stay cool!
Here at Brunel we’ve been making the most of the nice weather by raising money for charity, so read on to find out the latest news in the business.
2 of our team raised £555 for charity with a half-marathon
Giving back to the community is very important to us. That’s why we’re delighted to announce that some of our team have gone the extra mile (or rather, 13 miles!) to raise money for charity.
In May, Victoria Westbrook and Jamie Havard outdid themselves by braving the hot weather to complete a half-marathon. We’d all like to wish them a huge “well done” and hope they’re very proud of themselves.
In doing so, they managed to raise a very impressive £455, plus £100 in Gift Aid, for the homeless youth charity Centrepoint. This organisation does a huge amount of work with one of the most vulnerable groups in society.
Centrepoint helps to get young homeless people off the street and into a safe environment where they can get back on track and become more independent.
We’d like to give a huge “thank you” to all our clients who donated money for this very worthy cause.
Our Wells branch, Pilgrim Financial Planning, has launched a brand-new website
In the last few weeks our Wells branch, Pilgrim Financial Planning, has launched a new website, so if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, have a quick look and let us know what you think!
The new website is easier to use than ever before and provides clients with an easy point of access to their Personal Finance Portal and investment platform. The updated site can be viewed on all devices and we hope you’ll agree that it’s a huge improvement.
We have planted 22 baby saplings as part of a reforesting effort by the National Trust
As you may remember from our previous article, environmentalism is a cause that is close to many of our hearts here at Brunel. That’s why we’ve been supporting the National Trust’s campaign to plant 20 million trees in the UK by 2030.
As part of our plan to become eco-friendlier and offset more of our carbon emissions, we now make a donation to this charity whenever we take a new client onboard. This money goes towards reforesting and building habitats for wildlife.
So far, we’re delighted to announce that 22 saplings have been planted on our behalf, and we hope to grow this number even further in the near future.
If you want to find out more about the benefits that this scheme will bring, both to UK wildlife and the planet, visit the National Trust’s website to find out more. If you’d like to support their scheme, you can also donate directly through their website.
