In celebration of 15 successful years in business the partners and staff at Navigator Financial Planning invited guests and clients to Cultra Manor, Holywood earlier this month. Guests and clients heard about the success of the company and their commitment to NI in the future which they recognised and highlighted with a donation to the Ann McGeeney Fund, a fund managed by the Community Foundation and set up by Jimmy Murray in memory of his late wife.
Ann was a woman dedicated to working with and for the community in deprived areas, across borders, supporting peace building and inspiring women to be confident and make a difference to their lives. Ann worked in dangerous and difficult times but despite intimidation, confrontation and challenge she never diverted from what she believed in or in the defence of who she believed in.
A donation of £1,000 from Navigator Financial Planning was made to the Fund along with over £500 from donations on the night and these funds will go towards helping local community groups to strengthen and strive, overcoming challenges together.
“With Ann’s Fund we are able to carry on the work she started allowing her memory to live on through awarding small grants to community and voluntary groups. As Ann always said it’s the small things that make a difference,” said Jimmy.
The Navigator Financial Planning celebrations are timely as it is also Ann’s 5th anniversary and the annual fundraising walk attended by over 100 friends, family and those who have lost a loved one through cancer was held the following day.
David Crozier manager of Navigator Financial Planning said; “We are delighted to support Jimmy and his daughter Daisy with the Ann McGeeney Fund. This fund is truly making a massive difference encouraging peace building and partnerships among groups living on the border having a positive impact on the causes Ann was passionate about.”
This year the Community Foundation celebrate 40 years of connecting people who care with causes that matter. They work to create a society where everyone can prosper and live in peace, by supporting those like Jimmy who want to give and empower the local community.
