The foundation of our financial planning business has always been the strong relationships we have had with our clients. Lifetime has been built upon their loyalty and the level of service we have been able to provide.
We want to continue to develop this relationship and we also want to give you the opportunity to make a difference to your community, wherever you live.
If you are happy with the service, guidance, help and advice you have received from Lifetime and know of family, friends or colleagues you feel could benefit from our online service then we have found a way that will also benefit your local community.
For all introduced clients to Lifetime, we will donate, on your behalf, £150* on new transactions completed with these clients, to one of our partnered charities, Children with Cancer UK and Stroke Association UK, or a hospice of your choice.
Lifetime, thanks to our loyal clients, have managed to donate money to a good number of hospices around the UK in recent years. A hospice is a house, or home, dedicated to the care of terminally ill patients. The first hospice was set up in 1900.
It is not just a building. It is a way of caring for and supporting patients and their family and friends.
Charitable hospices in the UK raise the bulk of their funding through support from their local communities including: fundraising, hospice charity shops, legacies, hospice lotteries and investments. They receive some statutory funding although levels vary across the UK, between the different nations and also within different regions.
- As of October 2021, the Lifetime referral scheme has donated £42,067.13 to 25 different hospices across the UK.
Children with Cancer UK
Today, somewhere in the UK, 12 children and young people will be diagnosed with cancer. Out of those dozen diagnosed, two sadly won’t survive. Children with Cancer UK is the leading national charity dedicated to specialist childhood cancer research to save and improve young lives.
The charity funds live-saving research to determine the causes, find cures and develop better treatments for children and young people with cancer.
It also funds vital support services for young cancer patients and their families to help ease the burdens of a cancer diagnosis. This includes hosting free days out for families affected by childhood cancer, funding financial grants for families who are struggling with the added costs of a cancer diagnosis and helping to build free accommodation buildings close to hospitals so that families can stay close to their child during treatment.
By supporting Children with Cancer UK, you’ll be contributing towards ground-breaking research and support that will, eventually, ensure that every child survives cancer.
Stroke Association UK
Every year 100,000 people in the UK have a stroke – that’s one every five minutes. There are over 1.2 million stroke survivors. Of these survivors, the Stroke Association UK points out that two thirds are left with a disability; two thirds have visual problems; and a third suffer from depression.
The Stroke Association help and support people in rebuilding their lives after stroke. The charity believes everyone deserves to live the best life they can, so they work with the stroke community to make sure people affected get the very best care and support. The charity also offers practical and emotional support, advice and information, financial support and life-changing research.
The Association’s message is clear: ‘Strokes won’t stop. With your support neither will we’.
