Quilter Cheviot helps Wiltshire Community Foundation celebrate a year of giving

Wiltshire Community Foundation, which manages donations by companies and individuals and redistributes funds to good causes in the county, celebrated another year of giving with a garden party sponsored by investment firm Quilter Cheviot.

Over 200 guests enjoyed the Wiltshire Community Foundation’s Annual Celebration at West Lavington Manor, which is currently host to the world-class Art in the Garden sculpture exhibition.

The annual event, which celebrates the achievements of the Community Foundation over the past year and thanks the donors for their support, came at a good time for the foundation as it hit its £17m endowment mark.

Community Foundation chief executive Rosemary Macdonald said: “We were delighted that Quilter Cheviot’s support enabled us to thank our supporters and highlight our work across Wiltshire over the past year.

“We support individuals and community groups working to improve lives, from birth to 100, Salisbury to Swindon, Trowbridge to Tidworth. Last year our grants funded 157 groups to support 35,750 people across the county”.

Richard Firth, executive director at Quilter Cheviot in Salisbury, said: “I am delighted that we could support the Foundation’s annual celebration at such a beautiful location.

“We strive to be to be at the heart of the Wiltshire community and this event gave us the opportunity to thank the Foundation and its volunteers for their hard work.”

Quilter Cheviot’s Salisbury office on London Road opened in 2010 and manages investments on behalf of businesses and individuals across the South of England.
