Over the last year Nicholsons Chartered Accountants has been proud to have supported the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance as their ‘Charity of the Year’; raising a total of £4,327.20 for such a fantastic cause.
It has been a busy year and the staff have participated in various fund-raising activities including cake baking, dress down days and a charity badminton event. Nicholsons Charity Ball was the main fund-raising event, which raised an amazing £7,000 and was split between the Lincs Air Ambulance and L.I.V.E.S
Gail Paton, a director at Nicholsons said “We have enjoyed supporting the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and after our visit to the base earlier on in the year, it gave us a far better understanding of the work the team do and the critical care they provide. It also highlighted the importance of keeping this vital service in the air.”
Gemma Shaw from Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance said, “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with Nicholsons and their efforts in the amazing fundraising they have hosted throughout the year. We are over-whelmed by the generosity of those who supported our charity. Your support ensures we can continue to provide a lifesaving service to those incidents and accidents where the skills on our helicopter can really make the difference between life and death.”
Each year the staff are given the opportunity to nominate their preferred charity to become the firm’s ‘Charity of the Year’. The firm’s 2018/19 charity will be St Barnabas Hospice, as voted for by the staff. The team at Nicholsons are already planning to hold their next Charity Ball.
