Corporate Social Responsibility
As a Chartered Accountancy business operating in Bradford, West Yorkshire, providing a service to local businesses and individuals and making use of many local services ourselves, we believe that it is important to give something back to our community.
We achieve this in a number of ways – from giving our support to local charities and students through to sponsorship and fundraising activities, as well as working with charities as their appointed accountants.
One of our longest charity relationships has been with the Jane Tomlinson Appeal which helps children’s and cancer charities across Yorkshire, the UK and globally.
In addition, we also support One In A Million; a local charity which provides a range of community-based projects to children and young people from disadvantaged areas in eight centres across Bradford.
On top of this we have also supported a number of local sports clubs and organisations through the Watson Buckle Foundation in previous years.
Our charity of the year is Marie Curie Hospice in Bradford. Over the last twelve months Watson Buckle has raised money for the hospice from a number of fundraising events which includes, a Christmas Jumper Day, donating clothes, books and brick a brac to the local charity shops, supporting the Daffodil Appeal and Selina Bocskei, Corporate Services Manager, participated in the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge.
Alongside these activities we regularly welcome young people from local schools and colleges to visit our offices for a tour of our office or work experience – offering them useful insight into a career in our profession.
Our ongoing commitment to the local community forms an important part of our success and cements our position as a leading practice in Bradford and beyond. For more information, please contact us.
