Forrester Boyd Chartered Accountants nominated the Humbercare charity as its annual beneficiary for 2021/22 and were delighted to present a cheque to the Pan-Humber charity for £3,183.25.
Throughout the year, Forrester Boyd and its staff have been raising funds through monthly dress down days where staff made donations along with the long-awaited return of the firm’s popular annual professionals’ quiz which took part on the 25th November 2021.
The professionals’ quiz, which was held at the Grimsby Golf Club, saw over 110 participants return in person to enjoy this annual event. Retired partner Alan Nesbitt returned to host the event expressing how great it was to once again be able to hold a physical event. Always the kick start to the Christmas festivities, once again, the generosity and support from the local professional community was outstanding.
Jenny Donnelly, partner at Forrester Boyd was delighted to present the cheque to Dale Thompson, Manager at Humbercare. Speaking of the donation Dale said “We are so thrilled to receive this amazing amount that Forrester Boyd has raised. Thank you so much to the staff and partners and those that have helped to raise these funds. For any charity, the past two years have been a struggle and we are no different so this money will really help to make a difference to some of the vulnerable young people and adults that we support.”
