‘Investing in the communities in which we operate is a hugely important part of our ethos as an Asset Management Company. To ensure we deliver on the promise of our brand mission, ‘Enriching Lives, Creating Value’, we aim to weave this statement through every part of our operations.
We are delighted to sponsor the National Football League Academy in the Republic of Guinea, where our mining operations are located.
The Academy is attended by the brightest and most motivated football players in the country, with many setting their sights on the Premier League. We are fortunate to be able to support these enthusiastic athletes to realise their full potential.
In the future, we plan to invite U.K. football scouts to travel with us to the Academy – to hopefully spot the next Naby Keita!
After giving up a promising football career due to injuries potentially attained from poor pitch quality, it was vital to our Investment Director Curtis Webster to improve facilities and future prospects for young footballers at local team Southport F.C., whose ground is located nearby to 79th Luxury Living’s Kirklake Road development.
We have pledged £2,500 to the National League North club as a donation for the junior and youth set-ups, maximising the opportunities available for younger talent connected to the club.
Based between our U.K. headquarters and Birkenhead development, Claire House and their cause captured the team’s hearts with their invaluable work providing medical care and support to seriously and terminally ill children and their families; helping the children live life to the full by creating wonderful experiences and bringing a sense of normality back to family life.
When visiting the hospice to deliver Christmas presents, we discovered that Claire House relies on fundraising to run, and donations predominantly finance them. From there, we pledged to raise money and support them throughout the year as our chosen charity for 2021.’
