Winston’s Wish is the leading childhood bereavement charity. Every 22 minutes a child in Britain is bereaved of a parent. This equates to over 24,000 newly bereaved children each and every year. Winston’s Wish believe bereaved children need support to make sense of death and rebuild their lives.
At Financial Associates we recognise the importance of lending our strength and influence to good causes. Sadly, a number of our clients and one of our Directors have personal knowledge and experience of our chosen charity. We believe that many families don’t take the necessary protection cover or make relevant provisions to cope with such bereavement, therefore support from a charity such as Winston’s Wish can make all the difference.
Our regular donations are funded by us and advisers. We currently have raised a significant sum for this worthwhile cause and our corporate goal is to raise £25,000 in total through long term funding and active employee involvement. Our programme shows this can be motivating for staff as well as building meaningful relationships within the community.
