Team story

[p]Thank you for visiting our virginmoney page in aid of [b]CASCAID[/b], an exceptional charity focusing originally on Cancer Research and now raising funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). [/p][p]To earn your sponsorship, we ([b]The Saboateurs[/b]) are not completing a quadrathlon, nor climbing the three peaks in 24 hrs. We are not [i]even[/i] putting our lives in any sort of real danger by doing something scary or foolish at the end of a rope, on a parachute or boinging on a bungee. We will be, however, putting ourselves up for serious humiliation in front of colleagues, industry peers and clients by entering a Dragon Boat Race. 40 boats, one winner and lots of cheating in between.[/p][p]The event takes place at [b]235 Westferry Road, London E14 3QS[/b] on [b]Tuesday 11th September[/b] at [b]2pm[/b]. You are even welcome to come and watch if you want full value for your donation….[/p][p]Who are “The Saboateurs”? You may ask. They are five women and five men, all handpicked for their sense of fun and complete lack of any sort of nautical expertise or experience, ranging in age from early twenties to over 50/should know better ![/p][p]We very much appreciate all your support in helping us to reach our £2,000 fundraising target.[/p][p]Thank you in advance,[/p][p]Joe, Rupert, Catriona, Bex, George B, George D, Emma, Oli, Bev & Sarah.[/p][p][br][/p][p][br][/p][p]As an industry, Asset Management has already raised a substantial sum of money for CASCAID, more of which you can read about below. But the hard work doesn’t stop here and as we push towards the magic £3m barrier and hopefully beyond.[/p][p]CASCAID brings together colleagues from around the asset management industry (and friends and family) to raise money for charity. After a successful 2017, when we topped £2.35million for Cancer Research, CASCAID is now fundraising for Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).[/p][p]CASCAID is led by our Ambassadors – individuals who undertake challenges, organise events and galvanise others to raise money. Fundraising events are on an individual basis, within teams, on a company level and across the industry. CASCAID aims to get lots of people supporting this amazing charity in many different ways. Our aim is to contribute to the new cardiac catheter theatre for GOSH – their current one is not fit for purpose.[/p][p]Our Ambassadors are drawn from a range of fund management, wealth management, advisory and supporting firms.[/p][p]CASCAID is inclusive – everyone is welcome. It’s not a corporate cheque-writing exercise (although corporate donations are very welcome!). It’s about ordinary people rolling their sleeves up, giving their time and effort for great causes. If you’d like to join in the fun, drop us a line.[/p][p]Whilst our primary goal is to provide vital funds for GOSH, we also hope to bring the industry together to network, socialise and have fun, all in an inclusive, compliance-friendly way. We’ll get together for events like the Marketing Mix, the Hyde Park Fun Run, our two Gala Dinners and lots more. It’s a great chance for us all to spend time with clients, peers, colleagues and friends, with each and every occasion helping to save lives.[/p][p]Of course, we recognise that most individuals and companies already have significant charity commitments. CASCAID is not about replacing these – it’s about achieving more. Let’s get together to do a little extra.[/p]
