Old Mutual Wealth raises £23,000 for Ollie Gardiner


Old Mutual Wealth has raised £23,000 to help pay for Ollie Gardiner’s treatment as part of Old Mutual Wealth’s Magical Moments programme, which is an initiative to recognise customers for the individuals they are. 

12-year old Ollie Gardiner was diagnosed with a brain tumour in May 2015. After battling cancer for the past year and a half he has relapsed and now has cancer in both his brain and his spine, which cannot be treated by the NHS. His parents are attempting to raise £440,000 for a two year course of treatment.

Over the past two weeks colleagues across all of Old Mutual Wealth’s businesses undertook several fundraising efforts to spread the story and raise as much money as possible.

One initiative was a ‘cycle, row, run to Vienna and back’ 1971.6 mile challenge. As part of this challenge Chief Executive Officer Paul Feeney challenged Client Services Director Hanlie van Staden to match his distance on the bike on a treadmill. The loser paid £10 per kilometre of the winner’s distance.

All the money raised will go toward a multi-drug treatment called, “The Vienna Protocol” or MEMMAT.

Paul FeeneyPaul Feeney, CEO of Old Mutual Wealth comments: “Customers are at the heart of what we do. I am proud of what we have achieved for such an important cause. I was delighted to take part in the initiative.”

If you wish to join in the cause, Ollie’s family recently set up a new JustGiving page to continue its fundraising efforts.  The family also regularly update the Facebook page ‘Ollie Gardiner’s Brain Tumour fighting’.
