We take great pride in the City we live in and it is important to us to give back to the Charities that are doing fantastic work in our area.  First connected to GYC in 2017, the team explained all the great work they did in more detail and we committed at that time to sponsor them for the foreseeable future, not only through fund raising but raising awareness and by introducing other contacts we have in the local business community. Coupled with the additional support we’re able to call upon form St. James’s Place Charitable Foundation, we felt we could make a real difference supporting them and to date Alex often explains how proud he is of the Quayside Wealth Management’s team, our clients, and our professional connections efforts to support and spread the word of GYC.
