Award-winning accountancy firm Clive Owen LLP has supported the Great North Air Ambulance Service (GNAAS) with a £500 donation raised through its staff room tuck shop.
Staff at our Darlington office have been enjoying a range of tasty treats to help raise funds for the Great North Air Ambulance, which provides air ambulance services across the North-East, Cumbria and North Yorkshire.
The tuck shop was started by Elizabeth Layfield and Julie Allan from the Darlington Tax team as a way to benefit the staff whilst raising funds for local charities. Approximately every six months, the team at Clive Owen LLP choose a different charity which has a presence in the local community and this time they have chosen to donate to GNAAS.
Elizabeth Layfield, Tax Manager at the Darlington office at Clive Owen LLP, said: “As a business with fantastic community connections, we want to engage with local good causes and help to raise money for charities which may need a little bit of extra support.
“The Great North Air Ambulance does amazing work, but by its nature has a high-cost base so our Darlington office has done a great job in helping to raise money for them and we certainly have a sweet tooth!”
Deb Gibbs, Fundraising Assistant from the GNAA, said: “I would like to thank Clive Owen LLP for its generous donation, what’s better than knowing eating sweets and chocolate can help a good cause!
“We rely on fundraising to help keep us in the air and looking after the North East community, so any help we receive is greatly appreciated.”
