Tower Street Finance exceeds fundraising target for Cruse Bereavement Care

Tower Street Finance exceeds fundraising target for Cruse Bereavement Care

Tower Street Finance has surpassed the target it set at the start of 2021 to raise valuable funds for Cruse Bereavement Care – its official charity partner for the year.

The goal was to reach a total of £10,000, and that target was exceeded when the team raised just over £15,000 through a series of fundraising events and waived fees from law firms.

Tower Street Finance business development director Dicky Davies said:

We’ve been delighted to support Cruse with our fundraising activities in 2021. They are a natural partner for us as when we come into contact with potential customers they are suffering a bereavement and often going through the grieving process.

The partnership means we can both refer our customers who may need support and also contribute towards the vital work they do.”

One of the key highlights in the fundraising calendar was when Dicky Davies, Heather Pollard and Rebecca Scherman completed the Vale of York half marathon in September.

Said Heather before the event:

The longest I’ve run previously was a 10km about 7 years ago. I do run a couple of times a week but mainly to negate the wine I drink at the weekend! I started training properly as I had no idea if I could get to the distance before officially signing up as it turns out I just about can. The team get-together afterwards is good motivation and knowing we’ve done it for such a good cause.”

Cruse Bereavement Care head of fundraising Charlene Vallory said:

Having Tower Street Finance on board as fundraisers makes a huge difference to the number of people we can help, which is why we were delighted they chose us as the focus for their fundraising activities.”

Tower Street Finance will be continuing its fundraising activity for Cruse during 2022.

Cruse Bereavement Care offers support, advice and information for children, young people and adults when someone dies. It also works to enhance society’s care of bereaved individuals.

Tower Street Finance

Tower Street Finance (TSF) was set up by an experienced management team who saw a need for relevant, accessible financial products which benefit administrators of estates, executors and beneficiaries. We are passionate about using insight, data and our considerable experience to help customers with innovative products and services, including those who may be in financial difficulty. We currently have four products which are aimed at the inheritance market and they all have a common DNA. There are:

  • No credit checks
  • No risk or personal liability
  • No charge over property
  • No monthly repayments
  • No requirement for a Will
IHT Loan The IHT Loan can help when estates are effectively ‘locked’ because the executor needs to pay the IHT to get the Grant, but needs the Grant to realise the assets to pay the IHT. It’s taken out by the executor/personal representative and can solve the problem. The money is used to pay HMRC and it’s a way of meeting the IHT liability to unlock the estate with no risk or need to take out a personal loan/bridging loan. Inheritance Advance (winner of Innovation of the Year, British Wills and Probate Awards 2020) An Inheritance Advance allows beneficiaries to access a proportion of their inheritance sooner, with the Advance repaid out of the proceeds of their inheritance. This solves the problem of beneficiaries asking when they’ll be able to get their money and you having to explain that the process is complicated and lengthy. Again, there’s no risk – if another Will emerges or assets take longer to sell or sell for less than anticipated, or another debt is discovered, we take the risk. Inheritance Dispute Funding (IDF) Inheritance Dispute Funding helps people who want to dispute a will but don’t have the money to fund the legal bills. We know that one in four people would dispute an inheritance if they felt it was unfairly distributed. Contesting a will can cost up to £5k in upfront costs and there’s no guarantee your case will be taken on – with IDF the solicitor gives their opinion on the case and win or lose – we take the risk. We pay the costs and then they’re repaid from the estate proceeds. Estate Expense Funding (EEF) Estate Expense Funding is for executors who face costs while they’re dealing with their responsibilities of administering an estate. These can be unexpected but we can help cover the costs until the inheritance is released Executors could be liable for expenses such as funeral costs, professional fees, house and garden maintenance and more. We pay the costs and then they’re repaid from the estate proceeds
