I do more than invest in our clients, I invest in the community.
I understand the importance of giving back to the people and communities I work with in order to develop a society that is fair, supported and geared towards a sustainable future.
Therefore, alongside my day-to-day duties, I run a number of regular CSR initiatives, which enables me to continue supporting and developing the people and places around me.
I have worked in schools to prepare the next generation for the world of wealth. My workshops guide school children through a range of topics while maintaining a fun atmosphere to capture their interest.
As with my clients, I believe that conversations surrounding money should not be awkward or uncomfortable. My workshops break down the barriers limiting people financially, starting at a young age.
In collaboration with Champions (UK) plc, we have raised over £2 million for Rainbows, a children's hospice in Loughborough. It is an essential haven for countless families, yet the hospice relies mainly on public donations and costs over £6 million a year to run.
My fundraising activities range from high-profile charity events to annual workplace fun days. I feel a vast corporate responsibility to my community, which drives me to continue raising money.
As a former player and still a Professional Cricketer’s Association member, I was delighted to be able to support social media abuse workshops that the PCA have run for their current members. I see how important the correct support for mental health is and my sponsorship of these workshops has helped the PCA deliver this ground breaking initiative.
I feel immensely fortunate to have been a professional sportsman but even more proud to be a member of the Professional Cricketer’s Association who takes such pride in looking after their own.
