Chester accountants swap calculators for trainers

Three employees at a Chester accountancy practice are swapping their calculators for trainers to raise funds for a local hospice.

Glenda Hall, John Farrell and Nick Clark, all from Ellis & Co Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers, are competing in events to raise money for The Hospice of the Good Shepard.

The hospice provides palliative care for residents of Cheshire West and Chester and Deeside for free.

Less than a third of the annual running costs of £4 million come from government funding, the remainder is generated through fundraising, donations, events and corporate partnerships.

Trainee accountant Nick Clark will be the first to take on a challenge, taking part in the Asics Greater Manchester Marathon on April 7.

John Farrell, account senior will be taking part in the Chester Triathlon on May 12; followed by payroll assistant Glenda Hall who will be running in the Essar Chester Half Marathon on May 19.

“Ellis & Co has signed up to the hospice’s Corporate Challenge, where we have three months to double our £50 gifted to us by the hospice, “ said Natalie Tomlinson, PR and marketing manager at Ellis & Co Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers.

“These three events are the first of many and a great way for us to kick start this challenge so big thanks to Nick, John and Glenda.

“We are looking forward to raising as much money as we can for such a worthy cause.”
