The Moore Thompson Charity Fundraisers aim to support good causes locally, regionally and nationally.
It is led by staff members from the firm’s offices in Spalding, Wisbech, Market Deeping and Peterborough, as well as its associate company MT Financial Management Ltd.
In 2016, we raised £2,800 which was split between Lincolnshire Air Ambulance and the charity, ‘Lives’.
Last year, we supported a separate chosen charity for each professionals’ event we held. A representative from that charity was invited to attend our event to explain how the funds raised helped support the good work of their organisation.
Last year our professionals’ events supported two charities:
The charity, which is now in its tenth year, was inspired by Anna Olivia Hughes, who tragically died from a brain tumour aged only three years and eight months, and was set up by Anna’s parents Rob and Carole Hughes and her five Godparents in October 2006.
Our race night raised much needed funds for this deserving charity.
Our second chosen charity is The Lincolnshire Autistic Society, which is dedicated to building awareness and understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders [ASD] and associated conditions, to help improve the quality of life and outcomes for children and adults, their parents and carers living with ASD.
The Lincolnshire Autistic Society has been specially selected in memory of Jenny Nicolson, our much loved colleague and former tax manager at Moore Thompson’s Spalding office, who passed away suddenly in 2016. Jenny had worked for Moore Thompson for many years and was an extremely enthusiastic quiz buff. It was therefore fitting that our annual Professional Quiz night on 5 October 2017 was held in her memory and in aid of a charity close to Jenny’s heart.
Throughout the year we will also be organising a number of other charity events, the proceeds of which will be donated to the local Priory School charity.
Part of the Spalding Special Schools Federation, the Priory School meets the needs of pupils aged 11 to 16, all of whom have moderate learning difficulties and many of whom have ASD and social communication difficulties. The school is currently fund raising to help purchase a new minibus.
December – Charity jumpers and festive accessories day.
This means that in 2017 we worked harder than ever to raise money for our three worthy local causes/not for profit organisations and we hope we can count on your continued support and generosity to make a difference in 2018.
