A raft of good deals benefits from the latest donations from the Haslers Foundation
Three charities across Essex have benefited from charitable donations from the Haslers Foundation – the in-house charity of one of Loughton’s leading accounting firms.
Established by Haslers Chartered Accountants over a decade ago, the Foundation has helped raise over £ 180,000 for organizations in the South East.
As part of its ongoing work in local communities, the Foundation donated £ 1,250 to the Epping Food Bank, which has helped resupply food parcels for more than 80 families.
The Epping Food Bank is part of a nationwide network of food banks, supported by The Trussell Trust, which fights poverty and hunger.
A spokesperson for the food bank said, “Many thanks to Haslers for their kind financial support in helping us provide food to over 80 local families in the Epping Forest District during the Easter holidays.
“We really appreciate the support of local businesses to help us help local people who are going through a difficult time. “
Another good cause to benefit recently from Foundation donations is the Community Police Clubs of Great Britain.
He received £ 700 to support the children in their award-winning projects, in particular his outreach work with Thomas Willingale and Limes Farm Junior School.
Finally, Accuro and their Loughton youth group for children with disabilities have received a donation of £ 700 from Haslers, which will be used to purchase new play equipment and fund an end of term celebration.
The Loughton Youth Group meets weekly and offers a range of fun leisure activities for 11-19 year olds.
It strives to provide a fun, child-centered environment where the needs of each child and youth are met.
Sue Fishpool, Head of Fundraising at Accuro, said: “Thank you very much to the Haslers Foundation for your donation. My colleagues from the Loughton Youth Group and the Holiday program will be delighted. This equipment will significantly improve the learning and development of our young people and the opportunity to put this learning into practice at the end of the term is wonderful ”.
The entire Haslers Chartered Accountants team remains very proud of the work of the Foundation, especially its president, Jon O’Shea. He said: “Epping Food Bank, The Police Community Clubs of Great Britain and Loughton Youth Group all provide essential services to our local communities and so we are delighted that the foundation can support them.
“I hope the money we have raised and donated will help these groups continue to support the local people in these difficult times. “
