We walked, cycled and baked more than ever, raising over £15,000 for our nominated office charities.

All the efforts of our people supporting our local communities has been published in our latest CSR impact report.

In 2020/21, we supported local charities to each of our offices:

  • The Honeypot Children’s Charity
  • Pilgrims Hospices
  • Demelza Hospice Care for Children
  • Samaritans Horsham & Crawley
  • Home Start Chichester & District
  • The Clock Tower Sanctuary
  • Chestnut Tree House
  • Turning Tides

The amount raised would not have been possible without the contributions and efforts from all our people.

Some examples of fundraising activities include:

A 50-kilometre trek in the Lake District – Sarah Ediss, Candice Hanson, Christopher Gregory, Colin Laidlaw, Jack Fosberry, Matthew Oxenham and Laurence Parry for their 50 kilometre walk in the Lake District, including an attempt to reach the highest peak in England, Scafell Pike. Laurence Parry also cycled 120km to meet them during their challenge. They raised a momentous £5,315.

Baking challenges – one of our colleagues, Tracy Becker, baked over 50 different sweet and savoury goods over 3 months raising an incredible £1,675.

Firm wide quizzes – Anna-Mae Wilkinson Cox and Hope Dance held a firm wide quiz, raising £300.

Craft making – Alison Saxby turned her hand to crafts and made 50 bespoke cards, raising £208.

James Peach, Partner and Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at Kreston Reeves comments: “There have been many challenges over the last year, so it is an even greater achievement to have continued to have broken our previous years’ fundraising efforts.

“This year, we’re also proud to have supported our local NHS heroes again by providing their respective NHS charities with 4,088 donated treats and toiletries in round 2 of our #ThankYouNHS campaign. A particular thank you to Patrick Cantellow who organised the effort and delivered the items.

“We continue to live by our purpose – ‘Guiding you to a brighter future’ – so are setting a goal of raising over £15,000 for our 2021/22 nominated office charities, and intend on doubling our volunteering hours, in our work meeting Sustainable Development Goal – Reduced Inequalities”.
