The Alnwick Garden’s iconic Grand Cascade is set to be renamed following a sponsorship deal with Sage Wealth Management in Carlisle.

During the partnership, it will officially be known as The Sage Wealth Management Grand Cascade, helping to deliver 'significant investment' into The Alnwick Garden Trust.

The charity promotes social inclusion, boosts general wellbeing, and supports the most vulnerable members in the North East community.

Michael Sage, managing director of Sage Wealth Management, said: "This partnership with The Alnwick Garden feels like a natural fit as we are also passionate about helping people of all ages within each community we serve across the North East.

“The Grand Cascade is such a prominent feature within the garden and for us, it mirrored the natural ebbs and flows of life many of our customers face financially at any stage."

Sage Wealth Management prides itself on assisting families in building a sustainable future at every stage of life.

Mr Sage added: “Money worries can lead to poor mental health, so our trained advisers engage people in discussions around financial wellness and help put tailored plans in place, which ties seamlessly to The Alnwick Garden’s mission to improve wellbeing.

“It’s great to be supporting such a well-respected charity, and proud to be lending our company name to such a significant and enduring regional landmark.”

Over the past two decades, The Alnwick Garden in Northumberland has made strides in addressing community concerns through its social impact and climate action programmes.

It has actively increased employment opportunities for young people, delivered drugs education programmes, and offered social networks for older people.

Mark Brassell, The Alnwick Garden chief executive officer, said: "As a charitable trust, we rely on the goodwill of individuals, businesses, and funders to enable us to not only keep investing in this unique place - a garden for all generations - but also providing well-needed services for our community and most vulnerable in the region.

"The collaboration with Sage Wealth Management is a perfect fit in sharing these visions so we’re proud to rename The Sage Wealth Management Grand Cascade in its honour."
