Charitable Trust Coordinator

Hello, I’m Andy’s wife and I co-ordinate all the activities of the Beyond Finance Charitable Trust.

The Trust is such an important part of what we do at Beyond Finance and a core part of who we are. We give a large percentage of business profits to the Trust to make a difference to the most marginalised in the UK and across the world. This means that everyone associated with Beyond Finance shares in creating this contribution.

Over the years we’ve been operating, we’ve worked hard to find charities which meet our criteria so that they:

  • Meet the needs of the most desperate and poorest of people in our world.
  • Are accountable for the use of money given to them.
  • Are able to identify exactly how our money has been spent and the effect it has had on the lives of the recipients.

It has been incredibly fulfilling to build relationships with our chosen charities and follow their progress as they help to enhance lives in some of the poorest parts of the world.

Aside from my work for the Charitable Trust, I teach R.E and French at a local primary school two days a week. I also juggle the busy lives of our three children and try and make sure I get a bit of time for myself to attend a boot camp and go for a run at least once a week!
