North West Chartered Financial Planners, True Bearing, have been on a fund raising spree in aid of The Bubble Foundation.
The Bubble Foundation, a specialist unit in Newcastle for babies and children born without an immune system, is very close to the heart of Judy Marshall, a member of staff at True Bearing. She decided to ask the firm to help in her quest to raise money after her great-nephew, Seth, was treated in the unit after being born without an immune system.
Raising a total of £256.33 through a raffle and cake sale all monies will now go The Bubble Foundation to assist with medical equipment, parent support and much needed research into better ways of saving lives.
Susan Peary, Managing Director at True Bearing said: “As a firm, we collectively agree on a number of charities we will support each year and ask our team for their suggestions. Judy approached us with the story of her great-nephew who had received wonderful help from the Bubble Foundation and we instantly knew we had to support the charity. Judy’s passion for the charity, along with her enthusiasm ensured that we raised much needed funds. Special thanks also need to go to Booth’s Supermarkets who kindly donated a food hamper to Judy to use in the raffle.”
Gill Johnston, Fundraising Manager for The Bubble Foundation added: “We are very grateful for the support that True Bearing have given to the Foundation, without which we wouldn’t be able to continue our ground breaking research into treating babies and children born with defective immune systems.”
The Bubble Foundation is just one of a number of charities which True Bearing has supported over the last twelve months. The staff have tirelessly raised money to provide a defibrillator to Gillibrand Primary School through the Hand on Heart charity and have given food donations to Chorley Help the Homeless on two occasions as well as supporting the MacMillan Coffee Mornings.
