Shoebox appeal 2023

December 2023

Helping Hands Community Project have been running their annual shoebox collection again, each one filled with Christmas gifts for the homeless and vulnerable in our local area.

We were happy to help out, and have been sourcing practical items as well as small bits of joy that can make a difference day to day. A big thank you to Helping Hands for their continued hard work and Merry Christmas to all those receiving a shoebox.

Macmillan coffee morning

Macmillan coffee morning

September 2023 

We never turn down the opportunity to eat cake, even if we have to bake it ourselves. And what could be better than cake, coffee, and charity fundraising? 

Enter: Macmillan coffee morning. It was a chance to come together, enjoy delicious treats and raise money for those affected by cancer. We raised £75 which will help run three online community forums for one hour. In this time, 100 people affected by cancer can support one another. 

Naturally we added a competitive element and can announce that our star baker was Vicky, Paraplanner and chef supreme with a wonderful Dorset apple cake.

Dragon Boat Race

Dragon Boat Race

September 2023

We paddled our hearts out and raced down the river at the Stratford-upon-Avon Dragon Boat Race, in support of the The Shakespeare Hospice. It was an exhilarating day, with excellent team spirit and a competitive atmosphere. Cheered on by our supporters lining the banks, we won one of our races and, most importantly, raised £1,527. 

The Shakespeare Hospice will continue its valuable work, providing compassionate care and support to individuals and families in need. Thank you to everyone who contributed their time, efforts and generosity to this unforgettable day of action and community spirit, making a real difference in the lives of those facing life-limiting illnesses.


Charity lawn bowls match 2023

Charity lawn bowls 2023

June 2023

After such a successful charity lawn bowls match in 2022, this year we had just one goal: raise even more money for Helping Hands. With that in mind, we're pleased to announce we raised £960, toppling last year's total by over £200!

We had a great group of clients and staff, the patient support of the Avenue Bowls Club team and fantastic weather to boot. Many thanks to everyone who got involved, and we hope to see you back on the green next year. 


Soup kitchen takeover

Soup kitchen takeover

March 2023

We've always admired the critical work that local charity Helping Hands Community Project do in support of the homeless and vulnerable. So when Vicky, one of our Paraplanners, mentioned we could help them out by taking over their soup kitchen, we signed up on the spot. We prepared two meals, dished up the food and served drinks to over 50 people in need. 

“Taking over the soup kitchen was a great experience. It was rewarding to see the impact we were having on those who needed it, and it was nice to get to know them and hear their stories. I would love to do it frequently as the regular volunteers said how helpful it is when people take over and cook meals for them.” - Hannah Stanley, Independent Financial Adviser  

Christmas jumper day

Christmas Jumper Day

December 2022

You're probably pretty familiar with Save the Children's Christmas Jumper Day - it's responsible for the annual parade of festive knits, raising vital funds to give children around the world the future they deserve. 

Here at Simpson Financial Services, we never miss the chance to wear something a little daft and fundraise for a worthy cause. It's safe to say the vibe in the office was merry and bright!

August 2022

Our 2022 annual charity lawn bowls match was a great success, raising £750 for Leamington-based charity Helping Hands. We love a bit of friendly competition, especially when we get to join forces with our clients and make a difference to the lives of local vulnerable people.

The brilliant team at Avenue Bowls Club were on hand to help us out, and we had a relaxed afternoon of food, drink, and bowls. A big thank you to everyone who got involved. Keep an eye out for next year's match...
