In 2009 Bluefin launched a partnership with Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research and supported us for two years raising over £70,000.

Bluefin launched their Walk & Talk events in 2009 with Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research as their charity partner. Staff were rewarded with a day out of the office to take part in the 10 mile hikes to help beat blood cancers. The events were so successful that they ran again in 2010 with 7 walks across the UK.

John Simmonds, Chief Executive for Bluefin Advisory Services said of the walks, "It is great to see so many Bluefin staff taking part in the walks, and helping Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research make a real difference to people’s lives. The walks are a great day out and it's a tremendous to see everyone crossing the finish line!"

Adding to their porfolio of events in 2010 was a charity five-a-side football tournament which invited customers, clients and staff to play football and fundraise. The event held at Powerleagues London City venue included team from Aviva, Scottish Widows, Axa Wealth, Pru Protect and Multi Channel TV.Two employees also ran the London Marathon and all staff took part in regular dress down days.

All the events provided great team building opportunities as representatives from offices across the UK joined forces to fundraise for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
