IFA Alexandra Financial Management has secured more than £6,000 from global financial adviser body the Million Dollar Round Table to support its charity work for orphans in Africa.
AFM is heavily involved with Lionsraw, a Stockton-based foundation that takes fans to international football tournaments in exchange for charitable work while on the trip.
In 2010, Lionsraw took over 150 fans to the South Africa World Cup and built an orphanage, sports changing rooms in a village, a pre-school and toilet blocks in Durban and ran football coaching sessions for thousands of children.
AFM managing director Neil Flint, who took part in the 2010 trip, has brought in just over £6,000 from the MDRT Foundation for Lionsraw. Flint says: “The MDRT has strict criteria for its giving foundation and I am delighted to have obtained this grant, which will help us build new toilets for the 200 pupils of a local school.”
