Local business steps up for Keynsham Mencap
Passionate about supporting their local communities, the team at PBTA (Perpetual Business and Tax advisors) Keynsham and Hanham, stepped out in October in support of Keynsahm Mencap after they heard about the charity’s mini-bus appeal.
Together the 16 strong team, set an aspirational target of 5 million steps for a month long campaign. The PBTA STEPTOBER team walked almost 5 million steps which equated to over 10,000 steps per day per staff member every day for the whole of October.
Duane Shield (Director) shared ‘We are a local accountancy practice who really wanted to continue to support this brilliant charity, by meeting our step targets we were able to provide a one off donation of £500 to help them with their current minibus appeal’.
‘We have a fantastic partnership with PBTA and look forward to continuing to work together on other fundraising and awareness projects in 2022’ said Amanda Leonard fundraiser.
The mini-bus is a life line to the members of Keynsham Mencap and so these crucial repairs where a necessity despite being an unplanned expense.
Local company AJM Engineering also came to the rescue along with the generosity of the local community who donated to the online appeal which meant the final bill was covered and the repairs were carried out; just in time as the charity’s Music Man Project takes to the road to perform on Sunday 12th December at 4pm at Manvers Street Church Bath. This is a free event with a retiring collection. For information follow Keynsham Mencap’s Facebook page or call 01179 865 659.
This cracking charity was set-up in 2008 to help enable street children in Jinja, Uganda to go to school and prosper.
A small amount of money goes along way – as little as £15 per month can transform a child’s life. We love this charity as 100% of all money donated to 1moreChild goes to tackle the problem. There are no western overheads, admin costs or wastage. The money can make an enormous difference to 1moreChild and enable them to take many more children out of the slum.
