Over GBP7,000 for CATS and Free to Be Kids!
The generous donation of auction items and bidders on the night raised over GBP7,000 for two children’s charities.
CATs, the charity founded by ex-Dresdner MTN trader Daniel Lewi (now mtn-i’s business development manager), supports families and children affected by Tay-Sachs and Sandhoff disease.
We were also honoured to be joined by Free To be Kids co-founder Rachel Nichols. Free to be Kids provides residential therapeutic adventures and activities for vulnerable children.
As a start-up ourselves (though now over 15 years old) mtn-i is proud to be supporting innovative charity start-ups and give them long-term support.
Since our award dinners started we’ve raised over £100,000 for vulnerable and sick children.
