December was a significant month for AF-PA with incredible industry generosity with both the traditional networking gathering at Marylebone Sports Bar and AF-PA backed Christmas charity lunch at the Institute of Directors.
At the Marylebone sports bar with attendees from all levels of the industry AF-PA raised £12,000 shared between Off the Fence and British Lung Foundation (BLF). The BLF contribution was in memory of John Allen the founder and developer of Finlex the finance management system for SME lenders.
AF-PA were delighted with the result of the Charity Christmas Lunch which raised an amazing £30,800 all in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Welcoming over two hundred asset finance industry colleagues at the IOD lunch Johnnie Halliday this year’s AF-PA chair said, “we were thrilled to be offered the opportunity to become associated with such a traditional high point in the UK finance & leasing calendar” Johnnie also paid special tribute to Derek Soper and the IAA organisation together with a fantastic master of ceremonies and fund-raising performance from Richard Adler.
On a combined basis we had over 550 attendees at all three AF-PA events this year and raised and distributed an amazing £50,800 for our chosen charities.
