The in-house charity of accountancy firm Moore Thompson has donated nearly £1,500 to Lincolnshire’s voluntary emergency care service, LIVES, following a year of fundraising.
The firm, which has offices in Spalding, Market Deeping and Wisbech, has spent the last 12 months carrying out a number of events, such as charity quizzes, to raise money for LIVES – an organisation with more than 700 specially trained volunteers across the region.
In total the Moore Thompson Charity Fund CIO – the practice’s in-house charity – raised £2,928 during 2016, half of which has been donated to LIVES, an organisation which helps on average 55 people per day.
A similar amount will soon be donated Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance, the firm’s other chosen charity of 2016.
Moore Thompson’s Managing Partner, Mark Hildred said: “We are absolutely delighted with the amount we have managed to raise in 2016 and we are very happy that it is going to such wonderful local causes.
“Our staff have really enjoyed getting involved in the fundraising, so it is really rewarding to see the money being put to a good use.”
Later this year in July, nine colleagues from the firm are hoping to overcome their fear of heights by abseiling down The Orbit in London to raise money for the Fund, which will donate the money to a number of good causes.
