Our Chosen Charities

Everybody at Cockburn Lucas appreciates the importance of giving to those less fortunate than ourselves and we continue to support a number of local charities.

Nottinghamshire Hospice

notts-hospiceWe are currently supporting the Nottinghamshire Hospice, who provides care for any adults who are suffering from life-limiting illnesses. We all know somebody who has been affected by such an illness and understand the importance of them receiving the right care in the latter stages of their life.

We were delighted to have raised £367.80 for the Hospice at the East Midlands Investment Dinner last year, which we hope went a long way to helping those in need. We continue to work with the people at Notts Hospice to explore other fundraising initiatives.

Village by Village – Volunteering in Ghana

village-by-villageWe are thrilled to tell you that Lee Elvidge, a member of our Business Support Unit, will be volunteering in Ghana for three weeks next year (2015).

Lee, along with his girlfriend, will be flying out to Accra in June and heading to a remote village in the jungle in the east of Ghana. He will be sports coaching with the local children, which he hopes will provide them with both enjoyment and education, as well as enriching his own life by experiencing a different culture and ways of life.

As part of this adventure they are required to raise a minimum of £1,160 for the charity Village By Village, who helps to provide villages across Africa with access to clean water, basic sanitation and a better quality of life.

In December 2013 I had a financial crisis which was made easy to bear thanks to the professional help and advice from the team at Cockburn Lucas. As for my investments, I would not expect anything less than the good service and advice I receive.
