Working day to day in financial markets can sometimes feel like a bubble, not seeing up close how much some people are struggling or how truly lucky we are to be able to commute on public transit, in a car (or via bike in my case!) to jobs that afford a certain quality of life.
We recently sponsored the ACI UK Charity Golf day, held on 2 July 2018 at the Buckinghamshire Golf Club, which funded the purchase of multiple Sunshine Coach buses for schools and organizations that support disadvantaged and disabled children in and around greater London. Since the ACI UK Charity Golf day inauguration 20 years ago, the ACI and its sponsors have contributed over £1 million.
This is a charity I and other members of the MarketFactory team have supported for many years and is very close to our hearts. We love stepping outside of the office for the day to spend time with these children and see the smile on their faces when a new bus is delivered to them, making it easier for them to get to school.
I am extremely proud that MarketFactory has been able to make an impact on the lives of these children and look forward to future opportunities in supporting them and seeing them thrive.
