Hurlstons Sponsor Skolars v Leigh Cup Tie

22nd March 2012

Malcolm Hurlston has created many organisations for good, both charities and other not for profit vehicles. He has chosen Skolars v Leigh as the time and place to launch the new charitable trust Registry Foundation.

One of his co-trustees, Gordon Beesley, is a life member of Salford; for the other, Marion Blake, it will be her first live experience of rugby league. Gordon is a former trades union banker; Marion is a leading tobacco company executive.

The aim of the Foundation is to make timely donations to charities in need, using its trustees’ experience to make fast decisions. It will carry on the donations policy of Registry Trust whose own good works included giving  the initial impetus to Britain’s biggest debt charity, the Consumer Credit Counselling Service.

The first aim of the new Foundation will be to gather commitments and donations to help the trustees start their work.

Hurlstons, which is sponsoring the match on behalf of the Registry Foundation, is a lobbying firm established in 1980; it has provided crisis support to many multinational companies and developed long term trade bodies to argue the case for contentious and sometimes unpopular causes.

Its major popular successes have been:

  •      the creation of Registry Trust – which safeguards the flow of judgment information throughout the UK to underpin responsible lending; www.trustonline
  •    making the case for Sunday shopping
  •    conceiving the trades union bank Unity and PASS (the Proof of Age Standards Scheme.)

Today Hurlstons concentrates on employee ownership, Registry Trust and pro bono work as a force for good, mainly in the finance sector. At the same time it is available for selected lobbying, research and advocacy assignments, capable of stretching its multi-lingual and widely experienced team.

In his personal statement Malcolm Hurlston says; “I like to make things happen, to change the world for people, to achieve results. There is no single best way other than by everybody using their best skills towards whatever the cause may be.

“The first change is rarely the final change, but it creates a new situation from which success can more easily be achieved – like the pass which leads to the try.

“Work with us; help the Foundation; life will be better”
