Employees of chartered accountants and business advisers, Price Bailey have raised a total of more than £60,000 for World Child Cancer in a year-long fundraising campaign.
The practice-wide campaign saw the employees skydiving, cycling, cake baking, car washing and a host of other activities, designed to raise much needed cash. In addition, every Price Bailey office held a charity fun day last October which raised more than £26,000 towards the total.
James King, the partner responsible for corporate social responsibility said: “The commitment and the inventiveness of the staff has been amazing. Our goal for the year was to raise £25,000 for the charity, and I’m delighted to see we have smashed that target. This money will make a real difference to the work that World Child Cancer do in treating children with cancer in less developed parts of the world, where £500 can often save a child’s life.”
Jon Rosser, Chief Executive of World Child Cancer added: “Everyone should feel really proud of the enormous amount of money raised. We will ensure that money is put to good use saving the lives of the many children who desperately need the help that has been so generously given by everyone at Price Bailey.”
The firm has long supported regional charities, but last year was the first time the firm has united across all its locations to support a single cause.
The firm has already begun fundraising for this year’s cause which is Alzheimer’s Research UK.
