Leading wealth managers, Brewin Dolphin will be taking on a “Brewin Virtual Distance Challenge” between 21st and 28th August in support of AWARE!

Founded in 1762, Brewin Dolphin help clients achieve their ambitions through expert, personalised financial planning and investment management advice. With offices in Belfast and Dublin, staff are coming together to walk, cycle, and run an accumulative mileage challenge, aiming to cover an incredible 3,440km over the course of 7 days whilst raising vitals funds for AWARE.

Oliver Loughead, Paraplanner at Brewin Dolphin told us, “The Belfast office have decided to support local charity AWARE because we believe that now, more than ever, people are struggling with their mental health.  There is so much uncertainty in the world right now with working from home, the lockdown and quarantine measures in place and restrictions on travel, not to mention the real health concerns many face. People are finding themselves unable to spend time with their loved ones, family, friends, and colleagues, and are spending much more time alone.  

All of this is taking a heavy toll on mental health and well-being, which is why we at Brewin believe that the work at AWARE is so important. The desire to contribute to the drive to raise awareness of depression and bipolar disorder and the provision of the skills needed to address these issues will push each of us individually to achieve and exceed our distance targets as we work together in support of this excellent work. We hope the funds raised will go a small way towards enhancing the already extensive list of programmes AWARE deliver to communities, schools, colleges, universities, and workplaces."

Team AWARE would like to wish a huge good luck to all at Brewin Dolphin who are taking part in the challenge. Funds raised will go to support those in Northern Ireland with depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.
