Journey To The Gills - Sponsored Walk - In Aid Of The Shrimpers Trust And Little Havens Hospice - Commercial Partners

Saturday 5th October 2019
Plans are well underway for our 'Journey to the Gills' Sponsored Walk and as part of this activity Southend United Football Club and the Trust have been working jointly to get our commercial partners on board.
Firstly we would like to welcome on board our 'headline' Sponsor MSPFX.
MSPFX exists to eliminate foreign currency risk and provides a bespoke service with best exchange rates on all your currency needs for both business and personal use, large and small. Holiday and business cash can even be delivered to your door.

Managing Director Mike Paterson commented as follows:

As someone born and bred in Rayleigh, and a life-long Shrimpers fan who still regularly makes the journey from Kent to the hallowed Hall as well as many away games, I'm delighted to be in my 5th Season as an Official SUFC Partner and I look forward to continue being of value both to the Club and its fantastic supporters, and in particular help to raise funds for the Shrimpers Trust and Little Haven's Hospice.

Whether you are looking to buy and sell overseas properties, emigrate to sunnier climes, better manage your company FX risk, or just get the best rates on your holiday and business cash, my team will provide you with an honest, impartial and informed service.

Go to to find out more. You can also contact me directly on 01732 700383, or DM via Twitter @MSPFX. Make sure you mention the SUFC/Shrimpers Trust connection to secure your preferential rates over and above even those we usually offer.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the following companies/organisations for their valuable support.
