TaxAssist Recycling Scheme
Corporate partners TaxAssist have been running a recycling scheme throughout their 190 franchises all over the UK, recyling ink cartridges to raise funds for the charity.
At Christmas time TaxAssist's Loughborough franchise got creative and made a very special Christmas Tree to represent the recycling the franchise has been involved with. They entered the tree into the Christmas Tree Festival. What a fantastic fundraiser and thank you so much for your continued support.

GVA Grimley partnered with the Round Table Children’s Wish charity won the award for Challenge Team for their 12 Wishes campaign. GVA Grimley employees from across the company’s 12 national offices sky dived and competed in triathlons, marathons, bake-offs and sweepstakes to raise over £50,000.

Collecting the award from host, BBC News presenter Huw Edwards, Rob Bould, chief executive, GVA Grimley said: “GVA Grimley takes its commitments to supporting charities extremely seriously, but this was the first time all our people could see first hand the difference donations could make to individual children and their families. This inspired them to pull out the stops and use their skills and expertise to go so much further.”
Also accepting the award at the black tie event was Helen Jeffery, Fundraising and Communications Manager at Round Table Children’s Wish, who said: “The staff at GVA Grimley achieved more than we could have possibly imagined, and this award is well deserved recognition of their supreme commitment and energy working together with our charity.”
