Accountants tee off for charity and raise more than £10,000

Local accountancy firm Haines Watts recently sponsored Wrag Barn Golf Club’s annual golf day raising funds for Hft (formally known as Home Farm Trust), a charity that provides a range of services for people with learning disabilities. 

The day itself saw 23 teams come together to tackle 18 holes, a ‘Beat the Pro’ and a chipping contest followed by dinner, raffle and an auction of prizes. The event raised more than £10,700 which will be used to upgrade staff facilities and overnight rooms throughout Hft’s network of properties. 

Martin Gurney, Partner at Haines Watts said, “Last year was our first year sponsoring this hugely successful event. Everyone involved made such an impact that we made the decision to continue our sponsorship and enter another team this year. Charities like Hft are vital for our local communities, and the assistance this brings to individuals and their families is immeasurable. It is our pleasure to assist the Manners family who own Wrag Barn, in their fund-raising efforts.

“Hft’s Fusion Model of Support ensures they focus on being creative about the kind of personal care and support they provide. Their services range from residential care and day opportunities to supported living and domiciliary care at home as well as helping those in their care develop meaningful relationships and paid employment.”

Haines Watts is a Top 15 accountancy firm in the UK and in 2020 the company was named as one of the UK’s Top Ten accountancy practices to work for after investing in staff wellbeing, cultural development and mindfulness support across the pandemic.
