CSF gala raises £7,000 for Mind
Crystal Specialist Finance’s (CSF) annual gala celebration raised £7,000 for mental health charity Mind.
The annual gala was held online due to COVID-19, with more than 150 professionals from the sector logging into the event.
The event rewards lenders, service providers and their teams as well as the business’s own employees with a range of awards and long-service commemorations.
This year’s charitable theme linked with CSF’s own Health & Wellbeing Campaign, which is looking to help finance individuals identify and take the necessary steps to overcome isolation, stress, grief, financial worries and fears about the future.
The specialist distributor has partnered with Mind and is aiming to raise a total of £25,000 this year for the charity.
Jo Breeden (pictured), managing director of CSF, said: “Obviously we’re gutted we didn’t get to hold a physical event with all our close industry friends, but it’s still massively important, perhaps now more than ever, to recognise those striving to deliver world-class service and customer outcomes in tough conditions.
“Huge thanks go out to our headline sponsors MT Finance and Shawbrook, and every other partner who still managed to make it a wonderful 45 minutes of cheer and celebration.
“We are genuinely hopeful that we’ll be back celebrating in our usual home at The Belfry Hotel & Resort in February 2022, until that point let’s all keep excelling and keep each other safe.”
