Corporate Social Responsibility
With our offices located in Gerrards Cross, we have been both, helping and supporting the local community and charities for a number of years. At Nunn Hayward Chartered Accountants we take our social responsibility extremely serious and believe that it is important to give back.
Supporting local community
We believe that a thriving local community is not only good for individuals but good for business too. We take social responsibility very seriously, because when we’re all working together it’s amazing what can happen! As well as working hard to provide our clients with the best possible service, we also help the community in a few key ways:
Gerrards Cross Festival Committee
Nunn Hayward along with other key local businesses, are on the committee for organising the Gerrards Cross Summer and Christmas Festivals. Working with the Rotary and also the Gerrards Cross Town Council, together this group ensures that the event is run, advertised and promoted to the local community. It is an important event for local businesses and firms to demonstrate commitment to the town in which we work in.
Gerrard Cross Fun Run
The Gerrards Cross Fun Run is a bi-annual event. Since its conception Nunn Hayward have been Gold Sponsors along with other local businesses. The event is a huge fundraiser for local worthy charities, such as; Medical Detection Dogs, Kids in Sport and The epilepsy Society. Staff at Nunn Hayward enjoy the challenge of racing against each other or simply coming along to this family event for an afternoon of fun. As a local business it is a great way of showing our support to raising awareness to the chosen charities and raising funds. 2018 saw over £40,000 raised!
Nunn Hayward has in the past organised Dementia Friends evening to increase awareness of the disease within the community. Joint ventures were held with the local Gerrards Cross library and a certified Dementia Friend Champion. If you are interested in attending our next Dementia Friend evening, get in touch and you will be registered for our next event
We are proud to actively be supporting our local schools and clubs through numerous activities.
Christmas Card Competition
Each year local schools in Gerrards Cross enter our Nunn Hayward competition to design our Christmas cards that we send out to all our clients (both printed and digitally). On average each year we receive several hundred designs that we need to whittle down to the few winning entries. The winning entries have their designs made into canvases to keep.
St Mary’s Mathematics Award Programme
For several years now, we have been working with St Mary’s School in Gerrards Cross, to help motivate the children to improve their mathematics skills. As accountants, we seemed the perfect partner to help the school with this! At the end of each term we present the children that met their personal goals with a certificate and Nunn Hayward Achievement badge. Headmistress of Junior House said of the programme “this initiative really motivates the girls to progress with their times tables and improve their skills and get to the next level”
Thames Valley Investment Network (TVIN)
We have sponsored TVIN for almost 10 years. TVIN work with SMEs, entrepreneurs and companies seeking to raise finance by connecting them with highly active potential investors (‘business angels’), who frequently provide commercial experience and contacts, in addition to vital capital. In additional to assisting with the funding of these events , we are also able to offer sound advice on setting up and general running of new enterprises, including more specific tailored advice on matters such as EIS, SEIS, Capital Allowance claims, R&D relief and patent box.
Local Sponsorship of clubs and events
People work best when there’s a sense of community. This is why Nunn Hayward is committed to sponsoring local events and clubs – to make sure the individuals who make up our local community are living satisfying, meaningful, fun lives surrounded by a supportive society.
SportsAid Bucks Lunch Club
Sponsored by us and other local businesses, the SportsAid Club was set up to help young local Olympians/Paralympian’s achieve their sporting dreams. Two events are held each year, hosted by a top sporting speaker. We are delighted to be involved in such a motivation programme for these young aspiring sporting stars in the making.
Gerrards Cross Town Council - Boost Award for our support of the community
We were delighted to be selected and awarded for our continued support of the community. Councillor Mike Lawson presented our certificate to Partner Simon Dodd. We were also keen to show our commitment to the town and have provided the floral flower boxes as you enter into Gerrards Cross
Gerrards Cross Bowling Club and Cricket Club
We are delighted to be sponsoring both of these local clubs. It is great to show support for these teams to contribute to the maintenance of the facilities and growth of club going forward. For more information go to www.gxbc.co.uk and www.gxcc.co.uk
Supporting National and local charities
Each year Nunn Hayward participates in numerous local and National fund raising activities for charities.
Staff enjoy supporting national charities such as the Macmillan Coffee morning and also Jeans 4 Genes, of which, we have now supported both for several years.
Golf Days - we support a few golfing events over the year, these include the Peace Hospice Golf Day www.peacehospicecare.org.uk, the Michael Sobell Golf Day www.michaelsobellhospice.co.uk and the Paul Strickland Scan Appeal www.stricklandscanner.org.uk.
