Nick McGregor, investment manager at the Henley offices in Market Place, said: “We want to recognise that 2020 has been an extremely difficult and challenging year for many people, organisations and charities.

“We have chosen to support the Samaritans as they offer support for anyone who’s in need, whenever they need it.
