£5,000 boost for Accuro thanks to financial planner at Seneca Reid in Thremhall Park
A charity based in Start Hill which is dedicated to helping people with disabilities has been awarded £5,000 thanks to a near neighbour.
The money for Accuro has come from The Openwork Foundation – one of the largest financial advice networks in the UK – as part of its Covid-19 Emergency Fund.
Accuro, which provides clubs and services for the disabled in West Essex, was also supported by Openwork in 2018 and 2019.
Its latest bid for funding was supported by Andrew Smith, a financial planner at Seneca Reid on Thremhall Park, who sponsored the charity throughout the application process.
An Accuro spokesman said: "Without Andrew we would not have received these grants. We are truly grateful for his support."
Andrew said: "I've been more than happy to help Accuro secure funds from The Openwork Foundation to help continue their great work and hope to maintain the relationship going forward."
For over 35 years, Accuro has been offering fun, safe and inclusive services to West Essex children, young people and adults with a disability and their families to improve the quality of their lives. For more information see www.accuro.org.uk.
