Staff and Partners at the Bishop’s Stortford office of chartered accountants Price Bailey saddled up and raised cash this week for the firm’s Wild West themed annual charity fun day in aid of Alzhemer’s Research UK.
Work was put aside for the day as staff dressed as cowboys and Indians and took part in target shooting, horse-shoe tossing, a scavenger hunt around the town, raffles, tombola and many other activities.
In addition, many employees donated the day’s pay in the knowledge that they are supporting a good cause, with some wishing to match a salary sacrifice in favour of the charity.
The practice-wide fun day was the latest in a year-long fundraising campaign for the charity which has seen Price Bailey employees undertaking a wide range of activities to raise much needed cash.
James King, Partner and head of the firm’s charity committee said: “Price Bailey is proud to be working together as a firm to raise money for Alzheimer’s Research UK. The commitment and the inventiveness of the staff has once again been amazing. Last year we raised more then £60,000 for our chosen charity throughout the firm, and given the result today I’m confident we will be able to match or even exceed that amount.”
