Accountants Giving Back
Let’s be honest, we are busy bees, we work hard and thankfully achieve some rewards. But we also know that we are blessed, we are aware that not everyone gets the same opportunities.
So we try to give a bit back. In the last year we have been involved in the following;
Sheffield Hallam University Enterprise Division – We continue to support the students and graduates at Hallam, who are either in business or are thinking about going in to business with small business accounting advice. We have been doing this for three years now.
We do this by delivering a presentation each month on cash flow and general business principles and we also run a clinic on the last Wednesday of each month.
Self-employment workshops – We’re great believers in getting people working. Our MD has been working since the age of 13 and doesn’t know any other way. Although we understand that some people find it harder than others to find work. For some self-employment is the only option. We’ve been delivering our self-employment workshops in prisons and at probation services around the country for the last couple of years.
Mission Christmas – We are proud to have supported Hallam FM’s Mission Christmas in 2013 and 2014. A big thank you to our clients and connections, who supported us in donating gifts to children across South Yorkshire, who were at risk of waking up Christmas morning without a single present.
You were part of wonderful group of people who together contributed 15,257 gifts.
Archer Project – we have recently donated a large amount of supplies to this great charity ran at the Cathedral in Sheffield City Centre. They work with the homeless to achieve a better life by helping them develop their independence, improve their wellbeing and behaviour and tackling setbacks and negative behaviour. We are proud to support them and we are looking forward to hopefully taking part in a sponsored ‘Sleep Out’ for the project as well. If you would like to get involved, you can find more information at their website: http://www.archerproject.org.uk
