North East Insolvency Professionals Raise Four-Figure Sum for the Sunshine Fund

Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 22.50.25Members of the North East arm of insolvency trade body R3 have swapped figures for fundraising to bring in a four-figure sum for The Chronicle Sunshine Fund.
The Fund was adopted by R3 North East as its dedicated charity, and its members, who are drawn from many of the best-known names in the region’s professional services community, have  been undertaking a number of fundraising activities, including raffles, quiz nights and two golf days.
And after all the money raised was added up, a cheque for £1,588.77 was presented to Clare Savory, head of fundraising at The Sunshine Fund.
The Chronicle Sunshine Fund provides specialised equipment to help improve the lives of children with disabilities in North East England, with individuals, groups, registered organisations, special and mainstream schools and hospitals able to ask for its support.
R3 is the UK’s  insolvency trade body, and promotes best practice for professionals working with financially-troubled individuals and businesses.
Allan Kelly, former chair of R3 in the North East and a partner with RSM, says: “The Sunshine Fund makes a huge difference to the lives of dozens of North East families, and our members have enjoyed fundraising for this very popular cause, so we’re very pleased to be handing over such a terrific sum.
“The nature of the work that the insolvency profession undertakes can sometimes means it is  not fully understood, but our North East members help hundreds of regional businesses and individuals move forward by addressing their financial difficulties every year and also support their local communities wherever possible.”
Clare Savory adds: “ A huge thank you to everyone at R3 North East for supporting the Sunshine Fund, we were delighted to be the nominated charity.
“All the money raised will be supporting children with disabilities right here in the North East, from iPads to help with communication to trikes that enable children to enjoy bike rides with their families. The money raised will make a huge difference to their lives.”
