Portal promotes diabetes awareness

Pensions advisory firm Portal Financial is continuing its charity fund-raising work.

Since 2010, colleagues at the Rochester, Kent-based firm have raised more than £12,000 for charities, most of these funds going to type 1 diabetes charity Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF).

Portal co-founder Jamie Smith-Thompson has a personal connection to the cause, as his six-year-old daughter has struggled with the auto-immune condition.

Previously the company has held bake sales, fancy dress competitions, skydives and marathons to raise funds for JDRF. Portal marketing assistant Claudia Hill will run the London Marathon in support of the charity.
