Navigation Wealth’s CEO Matt Hammond presenting a cheque for £2,500 to the Wilberforce Trust.

It comes after a number of fundraising events this year, including a recent charity dinner which saw former footballing legend Chris Waddle as guest speaker. 

Matt Hammond, Chief Executive at Navigation Wealth, which has offices in Beverley and Wakefield, said:

“We are delighted to be able to support such a wonderful charity and we thank everyone who has donated so generously.  Our initial goal was to raise £2000 so it’s great to have beaten our target!”

The Wilberforce Trust, founded in 1833 and named in memory of the philanthropist and anti-slavery campaigner William Wilberforce, works tirelessly to support individuals with a visual impairment, sight loss, hearing loss and other disabilities across York, North Yorkshire and the surrounding areas. 

The charity’s Operations Director, Samantha Scholey-Dyson, said:

“We are so thankful to Navigation Wealth Management.  Support from local businesses like theirs is vital to us particularly as demand for our services is on the increase across Yorkshire.”
