A firm with offices across the region has raised more than £5,000 for a number of charities.

Chartered Certified Accountants and Tax Advisers, Bulley Davey, has raised £5,600 through dress-down days, a sponsored silence, coffee mornings and half marathons.

The firm, which offices in Oundle and Corby, raised more than £2,600 for their chosen charity of the year – Sue Ryder, Thorpe Hall.

This was raised via dress-down days, a colleague selling eggs, a tuck shop and director Mike Gregson taking part in last year’s Great Eastern Run.

The funds were then matched by company directors.

As well as this the company raised £1,236 during their last Macmillan coffee morning and they also formed the largest team (20 people) at NSPCC’s Rutland Water cycle challenge, raising £694.

Graham Darbourne, director at Bulley Davey’s Oundle and Corby offices, said: “At Bulley Davey a huge part of our ethos is giving back to local communities and local charities.

“The Sue Ryder, Thorpe Hall Hospice is a perfect example of a fantastic local facility doing life-changing work.

“So many of the charities that we raised money for over the last 12 months rely solely on funds from the public – it was a privilege to be able to support them.”

Nilesh Patel, hospice fundraiser, said: “We are really grateful for all the effort staff at Bulley Davey have put into raising money for us during the past 12 months.

“It’s great to hear about such commitment to supporting a local cause.

“The £2,664 raised could pay for more than 160 hours of incredible care for hospice patients.

“It’s thanks to support like this from businesses and individuals across the region that Thorpe Hall can be here for our patients and their families when they need us most.”
