SDKA is a bridging finance provider based in Cheshire with a small team and a big heart! Our business started by helping fund local businesses and we believe that we have all grown together through strong relations and our sense of belonging. 

We have teamed up with St Ann’s Hospice to do what we can as a team to offer our best efforts and raise funds for the month of May 2021; as the charity celebrate their 50 year anniversary. 

The team are all in! Each has set to conquer their own goals and they need your support! Support them and St Ann’s Hospice by giving your donation and follow our progress on the SDKA social channels. 


  • My current lifestyle is no ‘weigh’ to live so our charity month has given me the drive to lose weight; something which I have wanted to do for some time but always seem to save for tomorrow. Supporting such a worthy cause in St Ann’s has given me the incentive that I needed and I will be focused on eating healthier and exercising more. So if I make it, then ‘lettuce’ celebrate with a lovely salad and maybe even a well deserved treat!

    I’ll be keeping you posted on my progress so please support me and St Ann’s and ‘doughnut’ worry - I will give it my best shot!


  • Over the last year, we have all learnt to work in a more flexible, virtual manner and my aim is to take my mobile working outside of the office and into the fresh air! I will be running, cycling, swimming and whatever it takes to carry out 250K of active exercise in the month of May! Every extra 25K over this target, I will donate an extra £50. Help keep me motivated and support this fantastic cause! 


  • Taking a leaf from Nisha’s book and due to the much more sedentary life style that lock down has brought (as well as a dog with a cruciate ligament injury) I have decided to step it up and complete 50 minutes of walking every day that I am in the office.

    It is so easy to barely move from your desk, especially at SDKA where we are so incredibly busy, increasing exercise, and getting some fresh air will not only be a benefit for me but for such a worthwhile cause in supporting the incredible work that the St Ann’s Hospice does on a daily basis.


  • After over a year of lockdown and lagging motivation for my own self-care, our charity drive has inspired me to rejuvenate myself with a mind, body, soul challenge.

    Mind. Keep calm and get back to yoga! I will get back to my daily yoga routine and will attempt a headstand at the office every Monday to Friday throughout May – so that’s 21 headstands in total.  This will not only be a reminder to see things from (quite literally) a different perspective, but I’m also told it’s a natural facelift.  Please join me upside down if you can! 

    Body. I have spent the better part of the year avoiding exercise so for the month of May, come rain or shine, I will be leaving my car at home and walking to and from work every day. 

    Soul. To mark St Ann’s 50th birthday on the 17th of May, I will fast for 50 hours (with only water to keep me hydrated) starting at 8am on Saturday the 15th of May and finishing at 10am on Monday the 17th of May – just in time for birthday cake!   


  • Having spent more then 10,000 hours flying planes, across circa 5 million nautical miles, I have decided to keep it very much on the ground and am aiming to carry out 300km of active exercise in May; running, swimming, cycling and whatever else keeps him moving! Join me for a run or cycle and I’ll donate an extra £50….I have all the motivation I need thinking of this inspiring charity but if you end up seeing me crawl by or collapsed on the side of the road, give me a cheer or push along. 


  • At the start of 2020 – just before the pandemic hit the UK – I decided to be a little healthier by walking every day around my neighbourhood on the Notts/Derbyshire border. 16 months on the number of steps and the pace of the walk is gradually increasing and I’m enjoying discovering new routes, views and local wildlife. However, as yet the magical average of 10,000 steps a day has eluded me, so now is the time. It will also make me feel better about indulging my love of ice cream!

    As well as visiting the SDKA office in Cheadle regularly I have relatives in that area so I’m delighted to be able to support such as worthy cause as St Ann’s hospice.


  • Happy 50th Birthday to an incredible charity with a sole focus on providing the best care possible. To support St Ann’s and celebrate their 50th Anniversary, I will be taking myself away from Netflix and chocolate and challenging myself to workout for 50 minutes and 50 seconds every day during our charity month! Please support me - I’ll need it
