“It is my pleasure to thank Janet Brown, at Moore Thompson, for her support with our Grant Funding application.

Janet worked with us at every stage of the application process to ultimately meet the scheme requirements. Her expertise was invaluable in securing the grant funding.

I would have no hesitation in working with Janet again on future projects, or recommending her and Moore Thompson to other businesses”.

Simon English, Sutton Hoo Produce

“Moore Thompson has been instrumental in several grants that have had a substantial impact on the growth and success of our company in recent years, including investment in new production lines and energy efficiencies measures throughout the business.

“Their team, including their Grants Service Manager Janet Brown, are very proactive at keeping up to date with our future growth plans and go out of their way to find new funding opportunities without which some projects would not be able to go forward.

“Always delivered in a friendly and personable manner, their services have the best interests of their clients at heart and take the hassle out of and simplify what could be a challenging process without them. I am very satisfied with the advice and support that I have received and would happily recommend them to others.”

Clive Himsworth, Fountain Foods Ltd

“From initial enquiry to receipt of business changing grant assistance an absolute seamless service with results I would not have been able to achieve alone. An absolute dream experience, thank you.”

Dean Jenkins

“We have appreciated all your support, and time with this. The funding report produced as part of your research service has helped and is being utilised. You have gone over and above in your bid writing work to secure us funds and have been available and approachable based on our needs. We will most definitely be using your services again.”

This testimonial not only extols the virtues of our accountant members – Moore Thompson, but also BNI itself.

Janet, who is Ricky’s colleague at Moore Thompson specialises in grant funding, and she contacted me recently to inform me of a grant scheme that maybe of interest.

She handled everything to completing the form and submitting the application.

Now I might have found out about the grant myself, possibly filled the form in, correctly highlighting the salient points the adjudicators were looking for, and perhaps managed to get the application in on time, then again I also might win the lottery!

Yes it cost us a few shillings, hence the referral, but it has saved us money – and all down to being a member of BNI and having a great member like Moore Thompson on board.

To borrow from Oscar Wilde ‘know the price of everything and the value of nothing’ must surely apply to BNI!

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Moore Thompson to colleagues and look forward to working with them in the future.

Thank you Moore Thompson, especially Janet Brown for your invaluable help in processing and finally achieving a grant towards a new powder coating booth for our agricultural wheel manufacturing business.

This allowed us to purchase the system much sooner than we anticipated and will significantly improve efficiency and quality of our products.

I would highly recommend anybody looking for grant funding to contact Janet who will  advise you on funding available and lead you through the process from start to finish with great professionalism.

Managing Director of D&S Factors

“Partner, Andrew Heskin, got in contact to let me know that they had a grant specialist in post. His call came at the right time as we were considering purchasing new equipment and grant funding would enable us to bring the project forward.

Janet worked with us to submit a grant application and I am pleased to say that we have secured funding.

Janet is a fantastic person and has done a really good job.”

Mr. Adrian Chappell,
Managing Director, Glenside Nurseries

“Janet at Moore Thompson researched the possibility of us getting a grant to help with the development costs of a new educational app. An ideal match for us was found in a university overseeing European Regional Development Funds. Janet guided us through the various hoops and hurdles in the application process and we subsequently received an offer from the university. I have the very highest regard for all the work that Grant Services did for us on this project.”

Colin King,
Managing Director of Education Quizzes Limited

“I have been working with Janet for nearly a year and have been very impressed with her thoroughness, clarity of advice and the way she has worked to meet some very demanding deadlines.

Her friendly and personable advice has allowed me to complete a successful application for state of the art nursery equipment that will have a positive impact on my business for many years to come.

I particularly liked the way she regularly kept me informed throughout the whole process and I would without hesitation recommend her to anyone considering a grant application.”

“Tulipland Potatoes, is a family business, based in Moulton Chapel, near Spalding and is one of the UK’s leading independent potato washing, grading and packing specialists.

“We have entrusted our accounting needs to Moore Thompson for many years and, when I called in to see Partner, Heather Bright, to sign off the annual accounts, I happened to mention in passing that we were thinking of purchasing some new equipment.

“She immediately referred me to the firm’s grants team who not only identified funding but helped me put together all the relevant documentation required, including an up to date business plan, project plan, directors’ CVs and cash flow forecasts.

“I am delighted to say we were successful in securing a grant offer – all thanks to the team at Moore Thompson who provided a prompt, efficient and supportive service; going beyond the call of duty!”

Jenny Stanberry
Managing Director, Tulipland Potatoes


“We were contacted by Moore Thompson’s Grant Services team back in March 2017 with information about possible funding opportunities to support our plans for growth. At the time, we weren’t quite ready to go ahead. However, Janet Brown kept in regular touch with us to ensure that we were kept abreast with funding opportunities.

In September 2017, Janet advised us of a funding stream that could support the purchase of equipment we were considering. Her expertise and speedy service ensured the application was developed and submitted, along with all the supporting information in less than a week, resulting in a grant offer one week later. I would highly recommend them.”

Gordon Winyard
Managing Director


“Having called into Moore Thompson’s office to sign off my annual accounts, I ended up in conversation with Partner, Heather Bright.

I mentioned to her that our company might need to change our heating system and Heather asked me if I had considered looking into the availability of potential grants to help me fund this.

Grant Services Manager, Janet Brown, got in touch with me and was able to advise me that there was, indeed, a suitable scheme.

This has resulted in a grant-funded energy review of our premises and the opportunity to apply for funding to support any measures we wish to implement.

Had Heather not been so proactive in first mentioning the possibility of grant funding, I would never have known about this potential opportunity.

I am very pleased with the service I have received from everyone at Moore Thompson and, in particular, Heather and Janet’s expertise and support.”

Derek Richardson
Director of Andrews & Co, timber, DIY and hardware retailer, Spalding


Moore Thompson have been our Accountants, Auditors and Advisors for over 20 years. Not only do they provide the normal accountancy services but they have provided us with specialist tax advice, business valuations and due diligence for the purpose of acquisitions. They also process our payroll and fulfil our Company Secretarial requirements. The staff and partners are always available to provide support and advice when required and they have frequent topical seminars to help their clients keep abreast of changes and opportunities in related fields.

Late in 2016 we discussed our plans for expansion and business development with one of the partners and were referred to Janet Brown at their new Grant & Funding Service. Within a matter of weeks we had received formal approval of funding and subsequently received a loan and a grant to invest in the project.

We couldn’t have been more impressed with the grant services provided by Moore Thompson. Janet was very knowledgeable, confident and helpful, such that we always felt we were in capable hands. We would not have obtained the grant offer, or that particular source of funding, if it wasn’t for Moore Thompsons foresight in setting up this new service for their clients. Janet also helped greatly in the application process and was supportive throughout. The speed with which it happened was impressive!

Moore Thompsons strong emphasis on teamwork reverberates throughout their operation allowing clients to receive a holistic and seamless service. We would not hesitate to recommend them as partners to any other business.
