Making a lasting difference for those in need

FOUNDED IN LOVING MEMORY OF
Working with charities is integral to our company’s ethos
With our very first outreach project – delivering rucksacks packed with supplies to a Greater Manchester homelessness charity – we were hooked. Soon after, we connected with other charity organisers and were inspired by them to widen our support, donating funds to the Bury Cancer Support Centre, the Joshua Wilson Brain Tumour Charity and several others over many years.
We are advancing how we interact with charities
In 2018 we established the Financial Options Group Charitable Foundation with the aim of advancing how we interact with charities and what we do for them.
Founded in loving memory of Christian’s mother, Betty Pepper, the Foundation’s immediate goal was to have an impact on at least 1,000 lives… to be that helping hand or to facilitate a turning point for anyone in need of a new direction.
Making thoughtful contributions where they create change
By making thoughtful contributions where they would have the greatest power to create change, and steered by the Financial Options Group Board of Directors, our Foundation has made a positive impact in the community by: making financial contributions to dozens of charity initiatives and organisations; raising awareness around mental health and financial wellbeing through our company’s website and social channels; promoting better mental health and wellbeing by sponsoring events such as 2021’s Models for Heroes Build and Tour Day at the Tornado Heritage Centre at Hawarden Airfield; raising many tens of thousands of pounds for worthwhile causes as hosts of exciting fundraising events, such as our annual Golf Days and Gala Dinner Evenings; spreading joy at Christmastime through our own ‘15 Bury Families’ campaign providing free Christmas shops.
