Private Client Team
He heads up Simmons Gainsford’s Private Client Team which looks after high net worth individuals, non-doms, and trusts, and provides advice on all taxes which impact on the affairs of private individuals as well as privately owned businesses.
Darren said: “This has been a difficult year for all of us, with the loss of two good friends and valued colleagues, and I am grateful for the support we have received from our staff and clients alike during this period.
“As we head towards the New Year, our focus will be more outward looking and I am very much looking forward to working with my colleagues at all levels to provide great service and support to all our clients.”
More than £900 raised at Simmons Gainsford quiz night
More than £900 was raised at a charity quiz night organised by Simmons Gainsford in Uckfield.
More than 80 people, from businesses in the town and surrounding area, attended the event at The Highlands Inn and the champions were Lewis Business Media.
Participating businesses donated prizes for a raffle which was drawn on the night. All the money raised during the event will go to Chailey Heritage Foundation.
Jenna Durdle, fund-raising manager at Chailey Heritage said: “We were delighted that Chailey Heritage Foundation were once again the chosen charity for the Simmons Gainsford quiz night.
“We had a great evening and would like to thank everyone who attended, bought raffle tickets, and made donations on the evening.
“Last, but not least, we are very grateful to Simmons Gainsford whose continued support means a great deal to us. All the funds raised from the quiz will help us provide education and care for children and young people with complex disabilities.”
Simmons Gainsford partner in Uckfield, James Duggan said it was another fantastic turnout for the annual quiz. He thanked the Highlands Inn for allowing Simmons Gainsford to host the event in the restaurant side of the premises free of charge.
