Gateley Raises Money for Evelina London

Top 50 United Kingdom law firm Gateley has raised £11000 for a popular Children’s Hospital. Gateley is a legal and professional services group.

The London office of Gateley raised the funds for Evelina London Children’s Hospital. Evelina London is part of Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust, and the second largest provider of children’s services in London.

Gateley combines the skills and expertise of its legal and professional advisers in four multi-disciplinary platforms: Business Services; Corporate; People; Property.

The team at Gateley raised the funds via many fundraising activities, which included the London marathon, office dress down days, bake sales and more.

A partner of Gateley’s London office, commented: “I’m extremely proud of the team for raising over £11000 for this fantastic cause.”

The funding will go towards a “magic carpet” for the children’s hospital – an interactive system, which projects different sensory programmes on the floor or wall.

The therapeutic play unit will be used to encourage children to get out of bed and play after rehabilitation to aid recovery.

Gateley has 11 United Kingdom offices in the United Kingdom’s major commercial centres with our headquarters in Birmingham.

They delight their clients through excellent service delivery, which has led to some significant client wins, successes and panel reappointments.

This partnership helps Evelina London provide the latest treatments for our patients alongside the best possible care.

The New CEO of The Single Financial Guidance Body

John Govett is vastly experienced, having worked in leadership roles across the public, private and charitable sectors including as CEO at Ixion Holdings, a not-for-profit skills and employment group of companies, Managing Director of Surrey County Council, Shaw Trust Charity Board Executive and P&O Ferries Commercial Board Director.

He has a strong track record of driving transformational change, delivering outstanding services and leading successful growth.

A deputy chairman of Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, he will take up his new post in October 2018. His appointment, for a four-and-a-half year term, follows an open and competitive recruitment process overseen by the Office for the Commissioner for Public Appointments.

The government is bringing together 3 well known and respected organisations, the Money Advice Service, Pension Wise and the Pensions Advisory Service to create a new Single Financial Guidance Body offering United Kingdom-wide guidance on pensions and money, and debt advice in England.

SFGB is a fantastic opportunity to improve provision of free and impartial money and pensions guidance and debt advice so that people can make informed choices about their finances. This is a challenging but rewarding opportunity to lead on improving financial capability in the United Kingdom.


John’s most recent role was as Group CEO of Ixion Holdings. His career has been in transformational change, partnership working, delivering outstanding services and leading successful growth. John has worked in the public, private and charitable sectors, with previous posts including Managing Director at Surrey County Council, Shaw Trust Charity Board Executive and P&O Ferries Commercial Board Director. John is also Deputy Chairman/Non-Executive Director of an NHS Foundation Trust acute hospital.

The department announced Sir Hector Sants as the new chair of the SFGB in May 2018. Sir Hector spent his executive career in financial services and regulation, including as the Chief Executive of the Financial Services Authority, European CEO of Credit Suisse and a partner of stockbrokers Phillips & Drew. Since retiring from full time work, his focus has been helping people manage their money, and promoting a fairer financial system. Sir Hector is a trustee of Just Finance, a charity which collaborates with the Church of England to promote a fairer financial system, and a member of the United Kingdom’s Financial Capability Board. He is also chairman of StepChange Debt Charity, the United Kingdom’s biggest debt advice charity, but will step down before joining the SFGB.

The SFGB will replace the 3 existing providers of government-sponsored financial guidance – the Money Advice Service, the Pensions Advisory Service and Pension Wise – bringing together the provision of debt advice, money guidance and pensions guidance for the first time.

A new, single body provides an opportunity to deliver a more streamlined service to members of the public providing easier access to the information and guidance people need to help them make effective financial decisions throughout their lives.
