We would like to welcome the newest member of the (extended) Five Wealth team – Frank!
As you know our charity of the year is Support Dogs UK, this national charity is dedicated to increasing the independence and quality of life for people with various medical conditions. They provide, train and support specialist assistance dogs to achieve this. The charity specializes in autism assistance dogs, seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy and disability assistance dogs. Support Dogs are very close to our hearts at Five Wealth – they have provided a autism support dog (Thunda) for Franklin who is the son of one of our directors, Steve Jordan.
It costs £20,000 to train a support dog and £36,000 to fund its entire career, so far through a number of events and our own donations we have raised in excess of £36,000! Support Dogs have therefore asked us to name one of their puppies in training, a fox red Labrador. We did a poll across the office and the favourite was – Frank!
We now see him as a firm part of the Five Wealth team, we hope to be able to provide updates throughout his training and are looking forward to his first visit to Manchester to see us – when he’s a little bit older
