Satff at a Wisbech accountancy firm have raised £5,600 for charity by holding dress-down days, half marathons, coffee mornings and a sponsored silence.
Bulley Davey, which has eight offices including one in Wisbech, raised £2,664 for their chosen charity of the year – Sue Ryder, Thorpe Hall – by holding dress-down days, a colleague selling eggs, a tuck shop in the company’s Spalding office, and director Mike Gregson taking part in last year’s Great Eastern Run. The funds were then matched by company directors.
The company also raised £1,236 during their last Macmillan coffee morning – with coffee and cake being sold across their eight offices. They also formed the largest team (20 people) at NSPCC’s Rutland Water cycle challenge, raising £694.
Bulley Davey’s marketing manager Becky Covington, and director Mike Gregson, visited the Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice to deliver their cheque.
Mitchell Burden, director at the firm’s Wisbech office, said: “At Bulley Davey a huge part of our ethos is giving back to local communities and local charities.
