Football Charity Challenge

At Steven Glicher and Co Accountants we are strong supporters of St Anne’s Hospice, a charity we are passionate about and have raised money for in the past. Below is just a bit of information about the charity.

“St Ann’s Hospice cares and helps around 3,000 patients (over the age of 16) and their families and carers every year who are affected by cancer and non-cancer life limiting illnesses. We deliver care that is special and unique to each individual person. Around 40% of inpatients at St Ann’s Hospice return home after treatment.

St Ann’s Hospice provides care on 3 sites and in people’s own homes, working in partnership with acute hospitals, primary care trusts, community services and voluntary organisations. Many of our services are provided 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our services are provided by specialist staff. We employ around 400 members of staff and are helped by around 800 volunteers. Our care is free of charge but St Ann’s Hospice has to raise £16,000 every day so our specialised staff can provide the highest quality care.

St Ann’s Hospice was 40 years old in 2011, one of the oldest hospices in the country. We have a record of delivering first class care for 4 decades.” For more information on this amazing charity we are raising money for, visit the St Ann’s Hospice website here.

We are proud to be involved with a series of events this October starting with the St Ann’s Hospice Accumulator Challenge. Groups are given £100 to turn into as much as possible over a month and all money raised will help local people who receive care and support from St Ann’s Hospice.

What we want from you…

As many of you know I am an avid Manchester United fan. So here’s the challenge. I need you to commit a sum of money for every goal that Manchester United score in October and that Manchester City concede in the listed fixtures. The fixture list is below and as you can see there are some tough ones in there. So give as little or as much as you can.

There are only 11 games and the 26th is a banker! Let me know how much and we will keep a tally and let you how to donate. For all the Manchester City fans, put your money where your mouth is! It’s all for a great cause. Thanks for your support. #accumulatorMCR
