Menzies chooses WSB Hospices as their charity of the year

MENZIES has chosen the Woking & Sam Beare Hospices as its charity of the year, and the Woking office has made a flying start by raising £800 towards its target of £10,000.

At a recent client event, what started off as a regular raffle for a jeroboam of champagne turned into something much more exciting.

The winner of the raffle, Paul Barber of Supercraft, kindly auctioned the jeroboam. The bids increased rapidly to £130, at which Martin Whitehorn of Julie West Solicitors, had the final say.

Salvador Amico, partner at Menzies LLP, a leading firm of accountants, said: “We are excited about raising money for our chosen charity of the year, the Woking & Sam Beare Hospices, which supports children, adults and their families struggling to cope with chronic and terminal illness.

“The hospice has touched the lives of many people that work within Menzies, and the lives of many of our clients too, so it seems fitting that we support an organisation that plays such an important role in our local community.

“Menzies is looking forward to a year of fundraising events which includes participating in the Woking dragon boat race.”
