Clive Owen LLP, chartered accountants and business advisers, has signed up as a ‘friend’ of the MFC Foundation.
MFC Foundation is the independent charitable arm of Middlesbrough FC, working across Teesside to raise aspirations and change lives for the better. It works with more than 35,000 disadvantaged people every year to help make Teesside a better place to live, learn, work and play.
Clive Owen LLP prides itself on being an active member of the local community. Since the Middlesbrough office opened in 2021 it has helped several good causes including Middlesbrough Foodbank with a drop – off point for colleagues to donate much-needed food items and supported the Teesside Erimus Man vs Fat football team.
The firm also encourages all employees to take one day’s paid leave every year to volunteer for good causes and the partnership with the MFC Foundation will help facilitate this.
Chris Beaumont, partner and head of Clive Owen LLP’s Middlesbrough office said: “We have a team in the firm helping to develop our sustainability credentials and Clive Owen LLP empowers everyone to support initiatives that help the wider community.
“The MFC Foundation’s values are aligned with ours, and working with them will enable our teams to give more back to the community.”
Gary Pollard, senior audit manager at the Clive Owen LLP Middlesbrough office, and lifelong Boro fan said: “The work the MFC Foundation does across Teesside is fantastic. It is a real community football club that cares about people in the area and I am very proud that Clive Owen LLP is getting involved.”
Paul Shepherd, business development manager at the MFC Foundation said: “It’s great news that Clive Owen LLP is coming on board as Friends of the Foundation. It was clear that their team already make a difference in the community and want to be actively involved in the work we do. We rely on the support of local businesses to deliver our programmes and I’m really looking forward to working together.”
