As everyone discovers when they read A Christmas Carol, giving – like Christmas – is a family affair that starts from the heart and affects the giver as much as the recipient.

As 2022 opens with the hope that the pandemic may cast less of a shadow over all of our lives in the coming year, we remain committed to helping our clients to nurture the generosity of spirit that has been fostered through lockdown and has helped so many charities to survive.

All of us are hoping that we will be less haunted by the  past Spirit of Covid-19 this year, but there is real optimism that a lasting positive change has been wrought in how we all view our charitable giving for the present and the future.
