Earlier this month, CEO Denis Nagy, COO Amir Nabi, and Head of Investment Management Simon Black accompanied one of our clients to the inaugural Time to Shine gala, a night of educational fundraising at the Great Hall of the University of Manchester, where an incredible £220,000 was raised from pledges on the night. The aim was to promote the work Shine UK does to raise the attainment of children from low income homes across the North of England.
Nabi described the gala as a “brilliant initiative containing some inspiring speeches” that came from, amongst others, ex Manchester United and England footballer Gary Neville, local Head teacher Chris Dyson, and Baroness Sue Campbell. The latter commented that, “education isn’t about the subject, it’s about connecting with people and helping them grow”.
We are proud to be associated with this inspiring evening of conversations, aiming to promote and encourage educational equality. Nagy commented that, “as a wealth manager, we have a close affinity with the excellent work the Shine Trust does to empower future generations”.
Indeed, that desire to empower future generations is a driving force behind much of Dolfin’s charity work which has included supporting the Muscle Warriors with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and raising funds for the Muscle Help Foundation by completing both the Three Peaks Challenge and more recently, the Tough Mudder.
Shine was established in 1999 and since then has invested over £27 million in projects benefiting almost a million disadvantaged children from 15,000 schools. Please visit the Shine website to learn more about the inspirational work they do to empower and encourage children from low income homes across the North of England.
