WyeTree’s management and staff are conscious that everyone’s help is needed to try to make an impact towards society by supporting various charities and non-profit organisations. Here are the ones we have been involved with so far:
We are proud to have been chosen to be part of the Battle Against Cancer Investment Trust (BACIT) project. This is an investment vehicle where WyeTree is one of a number of select managers who forfeit management and performance fees. This in turn allows BACIT to make an annual charitable donation of 1% of NAV to the Institute of Cancer Research and the BACIT Foundation. For further details please visit the BACIT website.
Skiing with Heroes
Skiing with Heroes is an adaptive skiing charity helping wounded ex-soldiers back into employment. This truly worthy cause focuses on injured veterans to ensure they are not forgotten. The skiing part helps rebuild confidence and reinstall a sense of fun, whilst the sustainable element of their work is helping these veterans back into employment. In January 2015, WyeTree participated in ‘The Business Challenge’ organised by SWH to help raise for the cause.
Action Medical Research
Action Medical Research is a charity that funds medical research to beat the diseases that devastate the lives of so many children. In the UK, there are hundreds of thousands of sick and disabled children who need help. Established in 1952 Action Medical Research have been funding medical breakthroughs, helping to save thousands of children’s lives and change many more.
CHICKS is a national children’s charity providing free respite breaks to disadvantaged children from all over the UK. The children they help come from a variety of backgrounds. They might be living in poverty, be young carers, be victims of bullying or abuse, or have been bereaved. The one thing they all have in common is that they could really benefit from a week away from their circumstances.
