Throgmorton Private Capital and our staff are really proud to support local and national charities and various fundraising events where we live and work. Below are just a few examples of activities where Throgmorton colleagues have been getting involved and giving back to their communities:
Throgmorton were delighted to sponsor Tamsin Russell-Flint who completed the disco-themed London Moonwalk challenge during the night of the 11th May 2019.
Walking 26.2 miles through London at night whilst wearing her brightly decorated bra, Tamsin was raising money for breast cancer awareness.
The Moonwalk started at midnight on Clapham Common and took thousands of participating women and men past iconic landmarks such as the London Eye, Battersea Power Station, Sky Garden and Tower Bridge that had all turned pink for the occasion.
After completing the course in 8 hours and 50 minutes, Tamsin said “it was an amazing experience and perhaps the most gruelling event I’ve ever done. After nearly 9 hours of walking, I’m still aching and not sure which was worse, the walking, the cold or being awake for 36 hours”.
Congratulations to Tamsin’s Team, the East Kent Pink Ladies, who raised over £5,000 for the breast cancer charity, Walk the Walk.Visit their website...
For the tenth year running, fabulous Royal Cinque Ports Golf Club, on the Kent coast at Deal, hosted the Throgmorton Kent Cancer Trust Charity Golf Day on the 15th October 2018.

On Saturday 8th September 2018, Throgmorton was delighted to sponsor our Investment Consultant, Rakhee Wood, who took part in the Dragon Boat at Bewl Water, Kent, in aid of the Chartwell Cancer Trust.
Rakhee is a member of a business
networking group for women, many of whom have been affected by cancer and she
says “since we started working with Chartwell, we've come to understand the
huge amount they do to make life better for those suffering and for their
families” Rakhee said that sixteen members of her group (who had never rowed
before) had decided to jump in a boat, grab a paddle and try to move from A to
B without capsizing! What could possibly
go wrong? The Event has so far raised £2,870.
Throgmorton was delighted to sponsor our Regional Director, Rob Dunn and his wife Tracy, who completed a 5k walk around the beautiful Broadlands Estate, home of Lord and Lady Romsey, on Sunday the 24th June 2018. The Event was organised by their Daughter, Eliza, who is the community fundraising Manager for Countess Mountbatten Hospice in Southampton. Over 300 walkers were sent on their way by Sally Taylor from BBC South Today and the Event raised in excess of £30,000 for the Hospice.
The Event had a special significance for Tracy as her Dad died at the hospice and Rob and Tracy were walking in his memory.Visit their website...

Throgmorton was delighted to sponsor Ryan Turley when he recently ran the Berlin Marathon.
Ryan is 36 years old and the stepson of our Regional Director, Richard Robaczynski. Ryan was diagnosed as a child with an aortic valve defect, and at Christmas 2015 he underwent open heart surgery at St Bartholomew’s Hospital to replace the valve with a brand new metal one!
Three months after surgery Ryan decided to take up running, and in July 2016 he ran in the Newham 10k race, finishing in the Olympic Stadium in London. Soon after he was given a British Heart Foundation charity slot to run in the Berlin Marathon on 25th September 2016. This was Ryan’s first ever marathon and he finished the 26 miles 385-yard course in a time of 3 hours and 57 minutes, comfortably beating his target time of 4 hours, and raising over £2,000 for The British Heart Foundation in the process. The photo shows Ryan having just run through the Brandenberg Gate in Berlin, sporting his tattoo but not the 12inch scar on his chest!Visit their website...

The costs of playing cricket for many young people in Hastings, East Sussex, can be prohibitive as equipment is expensive and staging each game often costs hundreds of pounds. Over the last four years, our Regional Director, Tim Eldridge has sponsored Hastings Priory Cricket Club via their match venue, which is run as a charity. The aim of Tim’s sponsorship, along with many other supporters, is to minimise the costs involved for numerous younger players who might otherwise struggle to afford it.
For the last few years, during November several of our male colleagues have grown moustaches for the month of Movember to raise funds in aid of research into prostate and testicular cancer.Visit their website...
