Pembroke Financial is a Shoreham based IFA firm covering Brighton and surrounding areas, are delighted and proud to be involved with many good causes in the local community. We support a wide range of local groups from the Arts, Sports and local Charities.
We are pleased to announce to be Adur Special Needs Project (ASNP) first local business sponsor.
Val Trevor, Chair of the Charity, “We are delight to have the support of Keith and his team. We are a small local charity that receives no government funding, so we have to apply for grants as well as undertaking our own fundraising activities in order to continue to support our families. The sponsorship of three play schemes provided by Pembroke Financial Services will make such a difference.”
Keith Relf, Managing Director of Pembroke Financial Services, explains why he decided to get involved with ASNP; “We wanted to give something back to the local community who support us as a Business and as a ‘home’. We heard about Adur Special Needs Project in Summer 2018 and became the principal sponsor of the Shoreham Star Trail. The event was great fun and raised a lot of money for a small local charity, staffed in the main by fantastic and dedicated volunteers. I visited one of the Saturday play sessions recently and am awestruck by the hard work, patience and loving care of those who work for the charity and the levels of help and respite given to the parents and children. I promised then that we would do everything we can to help this charity to both continue and to improve even further. We are delighted to be the first corporate sponsor of ASNP and hope to be of help in spreading the word to attract more sponsors going forward.”

Our sponsorship involved helping to finance a new bar in the clubhouse for the Association in 2013 and supporting both teams with the annual Pembroke Shield event – an annual ‘friendly’ between the clubs – bragging rights for the year!

A Helping Hand
Pembroke is a proud Corporate Supporter of the local charity, Whoopsadaisy, a small local charity based in Preston Park in Brighton which provides Conductive Education to help children with cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities to live life as independently as possible.
Using the Hungarian method of Conductive Education, Whoopsadaisy focus on what the children can do in group sessions which the children’s parents and carers also attend.
Most of the children at Whoopsadaisy have cerebral palsy, and all of them face daily challenges in terms of their mobility, co-ordination and balance. Many of the children also have speech, communication and learning difficulties.
We have a regular collection for the charity and sell the legendary Whoopsadaisy Bears which a Trustee Helen Palmer has been making, raising awareness and thousands of pounds in the process. The bears have their own Facebook page and if you would like to own a bear in exchange for a donation to Whoopsadaisy or for Helen to make you a bear to order, please contact Helen direct here.
At Whoopsadaisy every step counts.
‘Carys attended Whoopsadaisy for three years, and is now at mainstream school. We as a family cannot thank Whoopsadaisy enough for all their hard work, especially Beata and her team.’
