We have always believed that that we owe a much wider obligation to the interests and well-being of society, and so are keen champion altruistic causes whenever we can.

When the call came to provide guards at the for the Focus for Life auction, which was held on the 2nd October at Bush Hall in Shepherd’s Bush, we had no hesitation in lending our support. All images being auctioned have been shot in or around London, and have been kindly donated ensuring all profits go directly to the charities. 

The exhibition was created to raise money the following charities:

                                                      Howards Way Walk - Gallowglass Security
The Howards’ Way Walk is now in its sixth year, set up by a group of like-minded event industry people to raise money to support the Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund. So far it has risen over £300,000 to fund a Phd research Studentship set up in memory of one of its victims, Howard Kerr. The program at Barts Hospital works to find ways to detect pancreatic cancer at an early stage, via proteins in the body.
