Staff from across the business will be taking part in a series of events and volunteering in projects to support local charities with either fund-raising or labour.
It’s a wide and varied programme of activities from a 75-mile static bike marathon to a human hound race at the city’s greyhound stadium; a cathedral abseil; 75km walk and taking to the water for the annual dragon boat festival.
The five charities to benefit from the fund-raising marathon are NSPCC Peterborough Business Support Group; Shine; Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice; Macmillan Cancer Support and the Peterborough Cathedral 900 Appeal.
Volunteering work includes getting Little Miracles ready for summer with gardening, painting and cleaning; taking over a lunchtime friendship group for Age UK; painting the monkey house at the Exotic Pet Refuge; establishing a bluebell wood at Thorpe Hall and backing SHINE with some marketing survey support.
“We have been part of city life for 75 years and it seems fitting that in this special year, we should choose to give something back to the local communities we have served,” said Rawlinsons managing partner Colin Crowley.
“This initiative has been supported by all the staff at our Lincoln Road offices and everyone is looking forward to playing their own part in this mammoth undertaking,” he added.
“Over the last 75 years, we have shaped our services to meet the growing needs of the community and offer specialist services alongside traditional accountancy practices.
“As one of Peterborough’s leading independent accountancy firms, with a dedicated team of partners working with around 65 employees, we look after the financial needs of over 3,000 clients – from established multi-nationals to business start-ups, providing a full range of accountancy services,” said Colin.
