Accountants and Tax Advisers, Bulley Davey, has raised £3,600 for its Charity of the Year, Macmillan Cancer Support, as well as a number of other charities – through quiz nights, coffee mornings and dress-down days.
The firm, which has eight offices across the region, raised £3,600 for their chosen charity of the year – Macmillan Cancer Support. A large proportion of the total was raised by the inaugural Bulley Davey General Knowledge Quiz – which saw staff from all the Bulley Davey offices enter teams – raising £650.
Other funds were raised through dress down days, with one Christmas jumper day raising £63 for Save the Children, and in a quirky turn one member of staff raised over £100 by selling eggs from their chickens.
In addition Bulley Davey raised an amazing £2,025 during their last Macmillan coffee morning in September – with coffee and cake being sold across their eight offices. The Wisbech office alone raised £1,415 at their coffee morning, with the Spalding office raising £300.
Individual members of staff contributed too, with John Grant from the Audit Team in Peterborough, running the Great Eastern Run and raising £950 on behalf of mental health charity Mind.
Michelle Hutchinson from Macmillan Nurses visited Bulley Davey’s Peterborough office to celebrate the fundraising.
Mike Gregson, Director at Bulley Davey, spoke about the fundraising: “We’re delighted to have raised this money for what are such wonderful causes. In particular our Charity of the Year, Macmillan Cancer Support, which makes such a difference in people’s lives at so many levels. I want to say a huge thank you to our team who always go the extra mile, whether it’s baking cakes, running marathons or pulling on their cheesiest Christmas jumper. We’re excited to see what the next year of fundraising holds.”
Michelle Hutchinson, local Fundraising Manager from Macmillan Cancer Support said “We are thrilled that Bulley Davey choose to fundraise for Macmillan as their charity of the year. The money raised by Bulley Davey will enable us to support people living with cancer live life as fully as they can through the funding of a Macmillan nurse for over 128 hours.
“Macmillan nurses are vital and have a real impact on the lives of people affected by cancer. By engaging employees across Bulley Davey you have worked together to change people’s lives and taken away other worries so they can focus on their treatment. A huge thank you for all your support”
