The Asset Finance Professionals Association (AFPA) has marked its 10th Anniversary by counting its combined charitable contributions which it said had exceed £350,000 from all of its events.

The latest such event was the IAA-organised Charity Christmas Lunch in December which raised almost £40,000.

In a statement, AFPA said: “On behalf of the AFPA Board, we would like to thank all our members, supporters and generous contributors in time and money from across the asset finance industry.

“In particular, Peter McDonnell of Cordoba Rewards for founding AFPA Trust in the teeth of the last recession and more recently John Batty of IAA Advisory for his tireless work in organising the highly successful Christmas Lunches in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.”
