True Bearing raises record amount for charities

True Bearing Chartered Financial Planners, part of the Amber River group, has raised a record amount for local charities in 2022, beating all their previous yearly fundraising amounts!

An overall total of £8,440 was raised as part of their corporate & social responsibility initiative.

Most of these funds were raised for two local charities: Derian House and St Catherine’s Hospice. These charities were chosen by the True Bearing staff as being local and close to their hearts.

The team also supported a range of other charities, both local and national, such as Macmillan Cancer Care, the Disasters Emergency Committee (Ukraine), Burnley Children and Families Wellbeing Service and their local food bank, Living Waters throughout the course of the year.

Of the amount raised, True Bearing chairman George Critchley says: "This is brilliant. True Bearing feels it is a part of its local community and anything we can do; we do with pleasure!"

Raising this incredible amount has been both a team and individual effort, through a wide variety of different fundraising activities.

These included physical challenges such as a company-wide Walkathon, a triathlon completed by one of their Independent Financial Advisers, Kristan Oakley, and a charity walk.

Of course, in typical True Bearing style, fundraising activities also included cake, with their Platinum Jubilee bake sale and spooky Halloween bake sale raising funds for their two chosen charities.

They also held their yearly Macmillan Coffee Morning for Macmillan Cancer Care. Also, their compliance supervisor Rick Ashton walked the West Highland Way in May, solo, to raise £925 for Disasters Emergency Committee (Ukraine).

More recently, they held a Christmas Jumper Day, quiz and Jacobs Join, raising £601 and had a collection for a local food bank, Living Waters.

A donation was also made to Burnley Children and Families Wellbeing Service to top up family fuel payments to ensure families in need could stay warm this winter – much needed this year as you can probably understand!

True Bearing has supported Derian House for several years. The hospice, which is a short drive from the True Bearing office in Chorley offers respite, palliative and end-of-life care to children and young people with life-limiting conditions, as well as support for their families.

Previously, some True Bearing team members were given the opportunity to visit their premises and see the facilities there, enabling them to understand more about the impact that their fundraising can have.

St Catherine’s Hospice is another local charity that True Bearing have supported in the past. The charity provides specialist palliative care and support to people living with terminal illnesses and their families, as well as offering bereavement support to people of all ages who have been affected by the death of a loved one. St Catherine's is also close to the True Bearing office.

The amount that True Bearing has raised for all these charities will make a huge difference to the lives of those they support. True Bearing are proud to have made such a positive impact on their local communities through these fundraising initiatives and will continue to support these charities, as well as others, in the future.
