22in22 Celebration

Smailes Goldie, a firm of chartered accountants, tax and business advisors based in Hull, Scarborough, Pickering, Kirkbymoorside and Barton, have smashed their charity fundraising target set at the start of the year.

The ‘22 in22’ campaign set out to raise £22,000 in the year 2022 for a variety of charities. After twelve months of various fundraising events including golf days, sponsored walks, bungee jumps and skydives, the firm has nearly doubled its original target raising a total of £40,024.

“When we set out with our fundraising target, we knew that the amount would enable us to make some significant donations to charities, close to the hearts and minds of staff at the firm. To have nearly doubled our target is simply overwhelming,” said Peter Dearing, Partner at Smailes Goldie.

Recently the firm has been handing out cheques to charities to mark the success of the campaign. This included a cheque for the British Heart Foundation.

Regional Fundraising Manager Caroline Carmichael said “We would like to thank the amazing team at Smailes Goldie for their support and fabulous fundraising efforts to raise £7,203 for the BHF. The money will help the BHF continue to fund vital research into heart and circulatory diseases for which we are truly grateful”

Another charity that received a donation was the York and Scarborough Hospitals Charity, who received £8,312. The donation will help fund extras in the new Urgent and Emergency Care Centre, such as creating relatives’ rooms within critical care, to allow family to stay close by, a mental health crisis room and funding gardens to support patient and staff wellbeing.

“York & Scarborough Hospitals Charity were thrilled to be one of the charities supported through Smailes Goldie’s pledge. We would like to say a huge thank you to the Scarborough team who chose to fundraise for our Urgent and Emergency Care Appeal for Scarborough Hospital by taking part in the Wolds Way Walk event,” said Emma Sargent, Community Fundraiser at York & Scarborough Hospitals Charity.
