Our 2015 fundraising challenge

As many of you know this time last year, we had a Belvedere Mead Stars team take on the challenge of running up Tower 42 raising over £1,400 for Shelter

This year we have decide to support the Charity – ACTION FOR KIDS, an amazing charity helping some amazing young individuals live their lives to full.


This year, after being “eyebrowed” by my daughter, we have a team that,  on the 16th May, is going to join the Action For Kids Abseil coming down the The ArcelorMittal Orbit: a giant sculpture that swirls and swoops and delivers you views of the London skyline up to 20 miles in to the distance.

Action For Kids supports young people who have a disability, whether a physical condition of a learning difficulty, live the life they want to. The charity provides mobility equipment; funds for repairs to equipment; learning support to develop work place and independent living skills to ensure young people can reach their dreams. Paul & I have been blessed with fit and healthy children who have grown into fun loving, adventurous adults so it is an honour to help Action For Kids to support those who need greater assistance to live and love life.

So please support us to support them , and donate generously at our Justgiving Page http://www.justgiving.com/BelvedereMeadStars2015

VERTICAL RUSH 2014 – Raising funds for Shelter

The Belvedere Mead Stars are our terrific team who have risen to the challenge of running (or walking if needs be) to the top of Tower  42.  For those of you who do not know what Tower 42 is then you may be impressed to know that for over 30 years it was the City of London’s tallest building, known to many as the Nat West Tower as it was built for one of our leading banks at that time and was actually designed in the shape of the bank’s logo. Our valiant team will race up its 42 floors ascending the 902 steps on the 4th of March.

Our team is led by our very own Sarah Spring and she is joined by representatives of some of our business partners being:
Steve Myhre W R Berkley Insurance (Europe)

Andrew YatesLiberty Group

Ian BeckettNovae Group

James CavellBarbican Insurance


So glad that the chaps were keen to ensure Sarah didn’t need to run up all those stairs on her own.

Please give generously to support the work that Shelter do to help those who are homeless or have housing problems – There are so many unexpected circumstances, such as redundancy or illness, that can lead to the loss of one’s home.

Please donate via the Justgiving Website – Link here textgiving

If you are one of the modern day individuals that uses your mobile phone for everything then use Just Text Giving Service

If you would like to donate by cash or cheque then please contact us for information on how to do this.

This is Belvedere Mead’s first venture into raising money for a charitable cause so your donation and the efforts of our terrific team members taking up the challenge of those steps, all 902 of them, will make this a success to remember.

2012 – Another Dawn

As we reach the end of 2011,  all of us here at Belvedere Mead would like to thank our clients for making our launch year so successful.

We are honoured to have provided services to clients in three of the world’s continents and Elaine has certainly risen to the challenge of the variety of insurance and reinsurance services that those clients have required.  The Lloyd’s and London Insurance market has not been able to rest on its laurels during 2011 and will no doubt experience some exciting changes next year.

As we plan our 2012 activites, we look forward to working with old friends and new acquaintances. We are here to help and provide that expert resource as and when needed, however we are also planning to launch new ventures so please watch this space.

So as dawn breaks on 2012,  we raise a glass to all our friends, colleagues, and clients, both old and new,  to wish them and their families health, wealth and happiness for the coming year and beyond.
