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.
On top of this we have also supported a number of local sports clubs and organisations through the Watson Buckle Foundation in previous years.
We have recently sponsored Bingley Grammar School to enable students to participate in Race for the Line England & Wales 2018/19 Season 4.
Our charity of the year is Sue Ryder Manorlands Hospice in Oxenhope. This year, Watson Buckle has helped to raise money for Manorlands by taking part in the Yorkshire Three Peaks challenge and our team have raised almost £2,500. The team will continue to support this charity through other fundraising events throughout the year.
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.
