Taking a family stroll to new limits!

15 February 2016 • Warrener Stewart News

Whilst most families were enjoying the early spring sunshine this Valentine’s Day, two Warrener Stewart families were fighting it out on the Thames tow path, running the Craven Cottage 10k race. The race, now in its third year, follows the river from Craven Cottage (famous home of Fulham FC) up to Hammersmith Bridge and Barnes, then back via Putney Bridge.

The race is run in support of the Fulham FC Foundation and all proceeds used to support their projects that use the power of sport and education to build better lives for people in the local community

Nick Morgan, Joint managing director of Fulham based chartered accountants, Warrener Stewart, was joined by his son Ricky. Team Morgan raced the ‘taxing team’ of Nick’s tax colleague, David Collins who’d enlisted his sprightly parents; Mike & Jane Collins.

“With a bitter wind blowing up the Thames, it made for a very cold start,” noted Nick. “However, once we got into it, things quickly warmed up. I am pleased to say that I drifted round just under the hour in 59mins 49s, finishing 118th – just cracked the hour, but no cigar!”

It was a very respectable showing all round with Nick’s son Ricky, finishing 8th in just 40 minutes; whilst David, just a quarter minute behind, came 9th.  

“I thoroughly enjoyed the event” commented Nick. “But I may need to pass the Vets baton to Mike, David's Dad, for future races since he ran an impressive 53 minutes, whilst his Mum Jane also completed the course in just over the hour.”

Warrener Stewart support local girls football team

08 February 2016 • Warrener Stewart News

The popularity of girls playing football has grown, with female football now the biggest female team sport in the UK.  Grass roots support is vital for the many teams who compete at local level.  One team who are about to have the opportunity of a life time is Teddington Athletic FC’s Girls U15, when they fly out to Tampa, Florida. 

Tampa_footie_team_800x530.jpgWhilst only recently formed in 2013, the girls’ team has gone from strength to strength with the help of many sponsors, including breast cancer charity CoppaFeel! In a bid to give something back to their sponsors the girls are busy raising money to fund their tour to Tampa where they will be hosted by Tampa Bay United, the area’s largest soccer club. Their aim is to give a percentage of the funds raised to the charity to raise awareness of breast cancer in young women.

To help them reach their goals, Warrener Stewart has kindly agreed to donate money to the girls once in a lifetime football tour. Commenting on the donation, joint managing director, Nick Morgan said; “One of our long standing clients, Martin Fairn, joint founder of key-staff performance improvement and management company, Gazing Performance, approached us to help his daughter’s team. We wanted to help them give as much to the charity as possible so were happy to support them; this is such a wonderful opportunity for them to see how sport can be a great way of developing better international links and fulfilling a lifelong ambition.”

“we were so impressed at their quick response times and ability to resolve even the most complicated financial problem”
