As part of Five Wealth’s continuous support for the charity, it raised over £23,000 at its biennial charity fundraiser dinner earlier this month. The event was attended by leading figures in the North West business community, and saw Manchester United and England Legend Bryan Robson join as a guest speaker.

The money raised will go directly into Support Dog’s vital work training specialist assistance to work across its three programmes: autism assistance dogs for autistic children; seizure alert dogs for people with epilepsy; and disability dogs for people with physical disabilities.

Five Wealth’s dedication and continued support to Support Dogs is inspired by its co-founder and director, Steve Jordan, who’s autistic son, Franklin, has been with his support dog since 2020. On top of launching and organising the fund-raising efforts, Steve also ran the London Marathon in 2019 in aid of Support Dogs.

Steve Jordan, director and co-founder at Five Wealth, said: “This charity has played a life-changing role for our family, but most importantly, for my son. With his support dog Thunda, he’s now able to experience and enjoy the world, which wasn’t possible before we were introduced to the charity. I’m in a privileged position to bring together the North West business community to help raise a huge amount of money that will directly sponsor a new dog for someone else. It’s something I’m extremely proud to have helped achieve and look forward to continuing to do.”

Chris Daykin, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Support Dogs, said: “We’ve worked together with Five Wealth for a number of years now, and it is a really special partnership given Steve’s personal connection to the charity. It’s a phenomenal amount that they’ve raised so far and all of goes directly into training new dogs, which costs around £25,000 to do. This is why the efforts from Steve and the wider Five Wealth team is so important as we’ve now been able to train around three dogs, including Frank, an autism assistance dog was named in honour of Steve’s son Franklin.”
