Ed Caswell, Investment Manager at Cave & Sons presented a cheque of £1,000 to The Lowdown, a charity delivering free counselling support to young adults in distress or experiencing crisis in Northamptonshire.

The donation was made via the Cave & Sons Fund which is in turn managed and facilitated by Northamptonshire Community Foundation.

Ed Caswell, Investment Manager at Cave & Sons said, “We are delighted to support The Lowdown. The value of the counselling and support services the group provides to the young people of Northampton is almost immeasurable, and the fact they have been running for almost 30 years is testament to the dedication of their staff and volunteers.”

Ellie White, Resources and Marketing Manager of the Lowdown commented on receiving the donation, “We are so pleased and grateful to be awarded £1000 from Cave and Sons towards our vital work with young people in Northamptonshire. We would like to say a huge thank you to them as this kind donation will go directly to supporting 12-25 year olds with mental health, sexual health and LGBTQ services and will make a huge difference towards changing and sometimes saving young people’s lives.”

Naomi Butters, Fund Development Manager of Northamptonshire Community Foundation added, “We are pleased to manage the delivery of this fund which is a great benefit to community groups in Northamptonshire and we hope it will spur other businesses on to think about using the Foundation in regards to the charitable giving.”

The Foundation works with fund holders and donors to ensure projects make a sustainable impact on local needs, helping donors make the most of their charitable giving. If you'd like to find out more about setting up a named fund please email or head to our Named fund page.
