Women in Finance: we've still got a way to go

We’re halfway through 2024, and whilst we shouldn’t need to be still having the conversation around the gender wage gap, and how women are kept out of boardrooms and passed over for opportunities, we are.

Fundraising for Brain Tumour Research: 6 months in

We chose Brain Tumour Research as our charity of the year for 2024. Brain tumours are an urgently underfunded disease, one which our Business Manager, Hannah Bateman, has experienced personally when her father, Gavin, was diagnosed with a brain tumour in December 2022, sadly passing away in May of 2023. As you can imagine, fundraising for the charity that has helped Hannah and her family endlessly through this ordeal is very close to our hearts.
