It’s not everyday accountants give money away, but that’s exactly what one Louth based firm is looking to do for charity.
Chartered accountants and business advisers Duncan & Toplis are looking to raise funds for charities in East Lindsey.
Staff at the Louth office have set up a charity committee – and they want to hear from local good causes who would benefit from their help.
The accountancy firm is set to participate in a number of local fundraising activities this year, including a treasure hunt and a sponsored walk.
The Riddle of the Marshes treasure hunt organised by the Lincolnshire Coastal Grazing Marshes Project requires teams to embark on a journey across East Lindsey answering riddles to unlock a vault containing a 10oz gold bullion prize worth £9,000.
Staff members at the Louth office have also volunteered to do a sponsored walk by taking part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.
Nicci Shaw, a member of the organising committee, said: “We are very keen to help charities within our local area, because giving back to the community is important to us as a company.
“Activities such as the Riddle of the Marshes and the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge are quite different from the norm and we hope to engage the office and get all members of staff involved as much as possible.”
The charity committee will also organise a number of in-house activities to raise funds for its charity pot. It currently runs a tuck shop where members of staff can buy snacks on a daily basis and it will also be organising regular bake sales.
Nick Cudmore, a Partner at the Louth office said: “It’s very important that businesses remember the role they play as part of their community. Louth is a wonderful town and one which we’re very proud to work in.
“All our employees are very keen to put something back into our local community, so we’ve set up a charity committee to identify good causes that deserve our support.”
