Claire Markham with Heart of the Wolds Business Award

FH Manning Financial Services wins ‘Heart of the Wolds’ award!

Here at FH Manning Financial Services, we are thrilled and honoured to announce that we have been awarded the prestigious ‘Heart of the Wolds’ award! This recognition means so much to our dedicated team and is testament to the ethical values we hold dear.

The Heart of the Wolds Business Awards celebrate businesses across the Lincolnshire Wolds region that prioritise ethical practices and inclusive employment principles. As a firm that puts our clients, community, and environment at the heart of everything we do, we are delighted to be amongst this year’s esteemed winners.

Claire Markham, Managing Director at FH Manning, said: “Winning the Heart of the Wolds award is wonderful recognition of our sustained efforts to run an ethical, caring and community-driven business. Our team works tirelessly not only to provide trusted financial advice, but also to proactively support initiatives that benefit our local community. This award validates that our dedication to responsible business practices has not gone unnoticed, and will motivate us to keep aiming high.”

While awards are not the motivation behind our work, it is always nice when your efforts are recognised and endorsed by others. We do not take this accolade lightly – it is a responsibility to continue upholding the values of ethical business, environmental awareness, and community enrichment that have earned us this fantastic recognition.

About the Heart of the Wolds Awards

The Heart of the Wolds Awards were launched in 2021 by the Wolds business community itself. The intention is to recognise businesses across Northern Lincolnshire who are conscious of their social and environmental impact, and actively make a positive difference through their operations.

There are several categories including Sponsorship, Developing Young People, Customer Service, Ethical Business Practice, Green Champion and more. Assessment criteria focus on initiatives undertaken in areas such as sustainability, ethical trading, diversity and inclusion, and supporting other businesses or charities.

As winners of the main award – Heart of the Wolds – we are humbled to be considered an exemplary responsible business amongst the region’s diverse and talented enterprises.

Claire said: “We have always aimed to demonstrate ethical leadership and make a positive impact beyond our core services. The awareness raised by awards like this help reinforce that operating responsibly and supporting your community should be priorities for any business.”

Supporting the Wolds Community

One of the main criteria for the Heart of the Wolds award is supporting and giving back to our local community here in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Enriching the lives of those around us has always been important to us at FH Manning.

Over the years, we have been dedicated supporters of various charities and community initiatives across the region.

Most notably, our work with the Ralph Parish Foundation has so far provided over tens of thousands in grants to advance the education of pupils at secondary schools and for pupils leaving such secondary schools to enter higher education and continuing therein and the relief of financial hardship by making grants of money for providing of paying for items, services or facilities within East Lindsey District Council.

Alongside our charitable work, we also aim to operate sustainably as a business. From recycling office waste to using recycled paper and considering the environmental impact of our investments, we understand the importance of being a responsible business.
