Lifetime-sponsored Barnsley Hospice golf day is a huge success

The Lifetime-sponsored Barnsley Hospice golf day proved to be another tremendous success.

Silkstone Golf Club was again the superb venue for teams from all over the Barnsley borough, who revelled in the convivial atmosphere and raised thousands of pounds for the hospice.

Said Lifetime Director William Bottomley: “This is the eighth successive year that Lifetime has been a sponsor of the hospice golf day – the last seven as main sponsors – and once again it has proved to be a huge success. And the weather was in our favour too!

“Thank you to all the teams and companies who took part and supported the hospice, raising much-needed funds for such a fantastic cause.”

Before the golf swung into action, Lifetime managing director Ian Dickinson presented Barnsley Hospice fundraiser Sam Silverwood (pictured below) with a cheque for £469.65, raised from our hospice referral scheme (http://lifetime-fm.com/lifetime-in-driffield/hospice-referral-scheme/).

Lifetime has currently raised just short of £38,000 for 23 different hospices throughout the UK.

There were some terrific prizes on offer for the contestants on the day – with the overall winners being…….Lifetime! The team was made up of MD Ian, director Bill, and guests Pete and John (pictured below). Well done guys!

Here are some other pictures from a great day (courtesy of Lifetimer Annabelle Dickinson):

A Lifetime financial planner acts as a guide, coach, mentor and friend

A proper financial plan – a life plan – is something that we all should look to put in place.

At Lifetime our financial planners act as a guide, coach, mentor, friend and confidant to their clients.

Many people come to us looking for help with a specific issue, yet they soon come to realise that we can help them change their life through thorough financial planning.

The most important conversations that we will have with you won’t be about investment strategies or pension products. They will be about you, the people who matter to you, what your hopes and ambitions are for your future, what is really important to you, and what you really want to achieve in life.

We will also be able to help you to test out the different possibilities.  Could you afford to work part time?  Should you move to a larger house?  Can you afford to retire earlier?  A financial plan can help you to answer all of these questions.  It will also allow you to see what could happen if things don’t go quite to plan.  Knowing that you would still be okay if there is a financial crisis or if you suffer from illness or injury can give you great peace of mind.

We deliver life-changing financial modelling for clients through our professional and dedicated team, creating life-long and trusted partnerships.

We take the time to get to know our clients, to consider their whole situation, their current lifestyle needs, and what they want from their lives in the future.

We want to play our part in educating people on the importance of financial planning.

Opening minds to a lifetime of possibilities.

Financial planning with Lifetime is a process, not a product

Financial planning is a process, not a product. It is the long-term method of wisely managing your money so you can understand your true financial picture, and achieve your goals and dreams.

Your first step will be to let us get to know you. We will help you think about your future in a way that you might never have done before. We will help you to consider what is really important to you – and what you really want from your life.

We will ask you for your current financial details, any anticipated changes, and your hopes and ambitions.

We will use all of this important information to build you a lifelong cash flow model, your customised and adaptable financial plan.

Your cash flow model will let you see whether you are likely to be able to meet your goals. It will also show you what your life might be like in retirement. We will be able to help you to test out the different possibilities for your life.

  • Could you afford to work part-time?
  • Should you move to a larger house?
  • Can you help your children?

A financial plan can help you answer all of these questions. It will also allow you to see what could happen if things don’t go quite the way you want them to. Knowing that you would still be okay if there is a financial crisis in your life, or if you or a loved one suffers from illness or injury, can give you great peace of mind.

Different scenarios can be tested before any big decisions are made.

A proper financial plan – a life plan – is something that we all should look to put in place.

Lifetime Mortgage Adviser Ken hailed for ‘brilliant job’

Lifetime Mortgage Adviser Ken Abbott has been thanked for doing a ‘brilliant job’ by delighted first time buyers.

Ken (pictured below) guided the clients through the mortgage process from beginning to end – with happy results.

The clients enthused: “The service we received from Ken was excellent.

“As first time buyers everything was new and we knew very little about the mortgage process. We wanted someone to be able to explain it to us in simple terms and Ken did a brilliant job of doing so.

“He was there for us every step of the way and always a phone call away if we needed anything.

“We would recommend Ken to anyone buying a home.”
