PACT receives over £7000 from charity partnership

A CHARITY partnership with accountancy firm Grant Thornton has resulted in a donation to PACT of £7279.08. Staff at Grant Thornton ran various fundraising events throughout the year including sweepstakes, a Christmas jumper day and a world record charity row.

PACT Chief Executive Jan Fishwick said: “We have really enjoyed our partnership with Grant Thornton for the last 18 months and would like to sincerely thank all of their staff for choosing us and for taking part in a whole host of different fundraising activities for PACT. Their efforts will directly benefit many adopted children and their families who need therapeutic support to address painful past experiences and move forward to a happy life together.”

Tash Pettiford-White, Executive Assistant at Grant Thornton’s Thames Valley Office said: “We really enjoyed our partnership with PACT.  It was definitely a two-way thing. They supported us with lots of ideas and encouragement and made it easy for us to come up with ways to fundraise.

“Our teams were happy to get involved and collaborate in fun fundraising activities.  I’d definitely encourage other companies to enter into a charity partnership with PACT – it was a brilliant experience!”
