Giving

When I established Interion, I made a commitment that we would donate 10% of our Annual Net Profit to good causes. In our financial Year to 31st May 2017 we were able to commit £10,295 to deserving recipients. In most cases, the recipients were able to gain government match funding.

As a Christian, I believe that those causes that have need are placed before us in our day-to-day life. Here’s a brief summary of our giving, and the reasons for selecting these particular causes.

Johannesburg Bible College

Nat Schluter, the Principal, used to be a member of our Clergy team at St James’s in Gerrards Cross. He was in the UK raising funds to help develop the Johannesburg Campus, and my wife Lindsey and I offered to host a dinner party so that he could share their progress with potential donors.

We were shocked to hear of the number of ‘untrained’ preachers who were gathering Christian flocks in South Africa with false promises including that belief in Jesus would bring monetary rewards to converts. This sort of distortion of faith can be very damaging, and we felt that it was important to contribute to the good work Nat and his colleagues are doing.

Hope & Homes for Children

Do you remember the news reports a few years ago about the dreadful conditions in East European orphanages? I certainly do, and I was reminded of this when hearing an appeal on Radio 4 one Sunday morning.

I was delighted to hear of this Charity’s goal to eliminate orphanages worldwide. That’s quite a commitment and a way of transforming misery to joy – for children and adopters alike. This amazing organisation is achieving outstanding results and is a very deserving recipient.

Food for the Hungry

I was introduced to FFTH by a local friend, who is a trustee of the Charity in the UK. Like Tearfund - a previous recipient of Interion giving - this organisation works worldwide where the need is greatest, focussing on sustainable initiatives that help people to escape poverty for good.

I like the fact that there is a very low overhead in the UK – all staff are voluntary – so the money goes where it is needed.

The Connection, St. Martins in the Fields

Over the past few years I have come to know and support a homeless man who gathers funds at Farringdon Station. He’s a great guy and I have learned a great deal from our conversations; its so important not to just ‘walk by’– there is a moving story behind every homeless person.

He has made great progress, and I wanted to know from him which homeless charity had been most instrumental when he had the greatest need. On his advice, I visited The Connection and was hugely impressed with the practical support and guidance they offer to London’s homeless – always with humility and respect.

As a London business, it was important to the whole Interion team that we supported London’s most needy, and we plan to maintain this support in future years.
