Phil Gray presents cheque to Colin Parry of the Foundation for Peace (1)

Nantwich-based finance firm Watts has donated more than £2,000 to the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation.

Watts Commercial Finance joined a number of lenders in making the donation of £2,250 to support the foundation’s Survivors Assistance Network (SAN) Programme.

The SAN Programme is free to those affected by a terrorist attack, regardless of whether they have been affected as a result of what they have witnessed, injuries suffered or having lost a loved one.

Tim Parry, 12, and Johnathan Ball, aged three, were the two victims killed in the IRA bomb attack in Warrington town centre 25 years ago.

Phil Gray, managing director of Watts Commercial Finance, said: “Having met with Colin and Wendy Parry earlier this year, I felt it was a great venue for our summer event while providing an excellent opportunity for us to raise money for a worthy cause.

“When I approached our lenders asking for a small donation to the charity in return for a ‘guest speaker’ slot at our event, I didn’t anticipate the generosity that would ensue.

“I would like to personally thank each of the lenders for their kind donations and helping us to make the day possible.”

Wendy Parry added: “The Foundation is extremely busy at present working with more than 850 families and individuals affected by the Manchester Arena and the recent multiple London attacks which occurred throughout 2017.

“This donation will go towards our Survivors Assistance Network Programme which provides free, practical and emotional support designed specifically for victims who have been injured in such events, the families of those who have been killed, and people who have witnessed these atrocities.

“There is no time limit to our support, so we are available whenever our help is needed.

“Without the generosity of individuals and companies like Watts Commercial Finance Ltd, Close Brothers, Wesleyan Bank, Assetz Capital and Hampshire Trust Bank, we would be unable to continue our work.”
