Last week, Patron Capital were highly commended for their work with The Royal Marines Charity at the 2017 Third Sector Business Charity Awards.

Now in their eighth year, the awards commend the exceptional contribution made by UK business from all industries toward supporting good causes and celebrating the successful partnerships that have flourished between corporates and charities.

Patron was recognised for it’s outstanding work with The Royal Marines Charity, supporting the charity in its goal of enhancing the lives of hundreds of Royal Marines and their families. Since 2010, Patron have worked with the charity, providing ex-servicemen and women with key introductions, mentoring and opportunities, as well as improving the charities ability to raise funds.

“We are extremely proud to be able to support such a worthy cause. The team at Patron and I strongly believe in the importance of giving back to the community. Coming from the US, where the military’s bravery is celebrated, I was astonished at the lack of support given to those who have made life-changing sacrifices for the UK’s security. Through raising funds, collaborating on events, offering internships and mentoring programmes and providing direct assistance though our connections, we have not only assisted those in need but also learnt a lot and met some inspirational individuals. We look forward to our continued work with the charity.”

Keith Breslauer, Managing Director of Patron Capital
