Accountancy firm BDO raises £6,500 for Claire House

Each year the firm selects a chosen charity which they will fundraise for across the year.

Accountants and business advisers BDO LLP has raised £6,500 for Claire House Children’s Hospice.

Over the past 12 months the firm has fundraised for Claire House through cake sales, mud bathing and competing in Tough Mudder.

The donation is significant as it marks the total amount it costs to run Claire House for a day.

The hospice provides 24-hour respite and medical care, supporting children and young people with serious and terminal illnesses and their families from all over Merseyside, North Wales, Cheshire, West Lancashire and Isle of Man.

Beth Pochin from Claire House commented: “We are so grateful to BDO for all the time and effort they put into supporting Claire House throughout 2016, and particularly impressed with their amazing Tough Mudder team effort. Thanks to wonderful companies like BDO, we are able to continue offering vital care and support to local children and families who are going through the toughest of times.”

Mark Sykes Partner at BDO LLP said: “As a regional office we feel it’s important to embed ourselves within the community and support local causes. The work Claire House do is truly remarkable so we were overwhelmed by the efforts the team made throughout the year to keep momentum going and the grand total rising. It’s been a great privilege to be able to support the team there. We’re hoping our fundraising efforts will be just as fruitful this year.”

Throughout 2017, BDO will be fundraising for The Whitechapel Centre who work across Liverpool to prevent and resolve homelessness, social exclusion and housing poverty.
