Belmayne donates thousands to local charities

Belamayne's four partners (centre) with represenatives from Disability Awareness with Sport, Sight Support Derbyshire and Sheffield Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus and Sight Support Derbyshire.

Dronfield-based independent financial planners, Belmayne, have handed over £16,000 to four small local charities – the result of just nine months’ fundraising.

The total amount donated is being split equally between the organisations the firm chose as its charities of the year, giving each one £4,000 to spend on the valuable services they provide.

Benefiting from Belmayne’s endeavours are Derbyshire Asbestos Support Team, Disability Awareness with Sport, Sheffield Association for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus and Sight Support Derbyshire.

More than £12,000 was raised at Belmayne’s charity ball, held in May, which was attended by around 150 people. The event included a raffle and live auction of prizes kindly donated by friends and colleagues of the firm. The top selling items were tickets to see England play New Zealand at Twickenham, which sold for £800 and a signed Sheffield United shirt that raised £450.

Partner, Ben Smalley, also completed the 112-mile Tour of the Peaks with three friends on behalf of the Belmayne Foundation, raising more than £1,000. He said: “We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of the family, friends, clients and colleagues who have supported our fundraising efforts this year and enabled us to donate such a substantial sum to our annual charities. Each has a very different remit, but I have no doubt all of them will put the money to excellent use.”

The Belmayne Foundation was set up by the firm’s four partners in 2019 to aid small local charities who support health and wellbeing and provide relief for those in need. Organisations wanting to be considered for future support should contact Ben Smalley by email:

Abigail Beaney, fundraiser at Sight Support Derbyshire, added: “In terms of corporate partners, Belmayne definitely deserves a gold medal – we never expected to receive so much money! The ball was great fun and the team has been great to work with. All in all, it has been a brilliant experience.”
