You Quote, We Donate raises £1170

21 April 2017

Adviser votes in quarter one of 2017 have thrashed the donation record for our ‘You Quote, We Donate’ campaign. We are delighted to have donated £1170 across three charities; Myeloma UK, Adapt and The Cinnamon Trust.

Gaining the most votes, Adapt has received £456, £384 has been given to Myeloma UK and a further £330 has been sent to The Cinnamon Trust.

"ADAPT were delighted to be chosen as one of the ‘You Quote, We Donate’ charities,” said ADAPT Development Co-ordinator Sue Williams. “The amount raised is fantastic and will be put towards us being able to supply ADAPT Baby Packs to every new mum with a baby on the neonatal unit, which include an emergency supply of nappies, cotton wool etc. plus a Teddy Bear for their baby.”

“ADAPT Prembabies is a local Leicestershire charity who are completely self-funding so when we heard that Ellipse had chosen us we were more than delighted and would like to thank all the staff and advisers who have supported this campaign,” she added.

Thank you to Andy Horlock from Granite Financial Management who nominated Myeloma UK, Steve Clark from 44 Financial who put forward Adapt and Mara Allen from Robin Bradford Life and Pensions Consultants, who suggested The Cinnamon Trust.

Ruth Harris, community fundraiser at Myeloma UK said, “Myeloma UK relies almost entirely on voluntary donations and fundraising activities like the Ellipse You Quote We Donate campaign. A huge thanks for supporting myeloma patients across the UK.”

Lee Lovett, Ellipse CEO said: “It’s fantastic to see increased support from advisers in terms of votes for the charities featured in our ‘You Quote, We Donate’ campaign. The number of nominations we receive is also increasing each time we ask advisers to put forward a cause close to their heart. We are delighted to have the adviser community on board with us raising money for good causes. Thank you for your votes.”
