A change in the firm’s Charity Partner has been marked with a fond farewell to Fiona McCann and team at Mencap. We raised £5,971 in aid of the Big Step Forward campaign and were honoured to play a part in helping Mencap realise its ambition of opening a modern, flagship facility for children with learning disabilities.

A warm welcome to incoming partner, Alzheimer’s Society, a charity investing in research into dementia care, cause, cure and prevention, along with providing support to people affected by dementia.
