Huddersfield accountants, Sheards Accountancy, have announced that their charity partnership for 2017 will be with Kirkwood Hospice.
The partnership will see Sheards undertake a variety of fundraising activity throughout the year with a target of raising £4,000 which will go towards a piece of vital equipment for the in-patient unit from the Hospice’s Birthday Wish List.
Kirkwood Hospice, who are celebrating their 30th anniversary this year, provide free of charge, specialist care to adults across Kirklees who suffer from advanced or progressive illnesses.
Sheards will host a number of fundraising events which will include their ever-popular, annual curry night which will be taking place in Spring and has historically seen over 100 local business professionals attend.
Kevin Winterburn, Director of Sheards Accountancy commented: “Kirkwood Hospice have been such a huge part of community for 30 years and have helped so many. We are really looking forward to working towards our fundraising total to support the fantastic work that Kirkwood Hospice do."
Kate Leadbeater, Partnership Development Manager of Kirkwood Hospice commented: “Our new charity partnership with Sheards is one that we really value and we can’t thank them enough for choosing Kirkwood Hospice. Sheards have fantastic links to the business community and have some great events planned to promote our work to other local businesses while raising money to support our charity. We really appreciate Sheards’ support and look forward to working with them this year.”
