Alister Gaines, Founder at Akrivis wealth said “I am delighted to support Grace House, who do fantastic work with young people in the North East. As everyone will be aware the pandemic has proven to be particularly difficult for charities, not only in the lack of fundraising opportunities, but also attempting to deliver their core services. The wonderful team at Grace House have been particularly resilient throughout and have continued to shape and develop the support they offer to young people and their families to deal with the restrictions. Additionally, their fundraising team are doing a great job to replace contributions lost by the cancellation of traditional activities, however, will need additional support moving forward”.
