Changes to our team
Welcome to Susanna Freeth!
Following an intensive recruitment process to find a strong candidate to fill Nicole’s shoes, the County Team were unanimous in selecting Susanna Freeth, who has impressed us all by training up entirely remotely, having started soon after Lockdown commenced, but also by having already passed her CII LF1 Life & Pensions Foundation qualification within her first 5 months of working for County!
So, if you happen to speak to Susanna the next time you call our office, please join us in offering her a very warm welcome to our County family!
Farewell to Nicole Bull…
We are sad to announce the departure earlier this year of Nicole Bull, who had provided highly valued executive support to Simon Tuson for the last few years. Nicole has moved on to progress an exciting new career opportunity and we’d like to wish her every success in this new phase of her life.

County Financial Ltd features in The Parliamentary Review Finance Publication.
County Financial was approached by The Parliamentary Review Board to ask if we would consider being involved in their Finance publication. The aim of the Parliamentary Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to both the public and private sectors, with our involvement specifically aimed at leaders in the Finance Sector. Click here to see our article and a link to the full publication can be found by clicking on the image above.
County never cease to amaze me at the amount of effort they put into making their clients feel at ease. They are able to communicate and disseminate complicated information at a level which is understandable for clients who don’t have an in depth knowledge of the financial world.

A full report of Andy’s London Marathon
30 wet miles and surgery for 80 children
Andy’s London Marathon 2020…Take Two!
Nearly 6 months on from running my first Marathon, I had been keeping up with some fitness, but nothing like the gruelling regime over last winter. At the end of August, when I put my hat in the ring to raise further funds for club foot surgery, I knew it would be a tall order, especially as I was no longer a lean athlete! Despite the postponement of sporting events all over the world, it is clear the tremendous need of the marginalised does not go on hold. The thought of how difficult life would be for the children in Kenya without surgery compelled me to commit not only to a marathon, but to run 30 miles non-stop, to relaunch the club foot campaign.
On the day of the Virtual London Marathon, held on the 4th October 2020, the glorious lockdown weather miraculously disappeared and instead, wind accompanied by constant rain was the order of the day. Thank goodness for Vaseline is all I can say!

The following story is about Lucy, an example of just one of the 80 children whose life has been changed through surgery funded by the Marathon Challenge:
Lucy is 1 year old, born into a family of eight children. She had mild spina bifida as well as bilateral club foot. Everlyne, her mother, was told about Dreamland by a staff member, who happens to be a neighbour of the family.
The surgery has been a success and now Lucy is able to wear her first pair of shoes. Everlyne has asked that her heartfelt thanks are passed on to all those who donated so that her child could have this surgery.
She and her husband are small scale farmers growing maize, vegetables and bananas. They also take casual work to support the family. They earn about £70 a month and so the cost of this surgery would have been unaffordable.
