PPS business lunch raises funds for STEP Swindon
The event at DoubleTree by Hilton Swindon provided an opportunity for business professionals in the Swindon and Wiltshire area to network and listen to inspirational talks.
And £300 was raised for STEP Swindon, a charitable organisation which provides a safe and supportive environment for children and young people aged between 7 and 18.
This event has taken PPS Chartered Accountants’ total charitable donations to over £5,000 since the company started this fundraising tradition.
The charity lunch played host to multi-award-winning motivational speaker Tommy Hatto, who in recognition of International Men’s Day, delivered a talk to discuss why there is strength in vulnerability, and how we can all advocate for men to open up about their wellbeing, especially in the workplace.
He openly discussed the journey that led him to where he is today and provided encouragement and advice as to why taking courageous steps will ultimately lead us all to have a better work environment.
Also in attendance was the Mayor of Swindon, Councillor Abdul Amin. “It is such an honour to be here today in support of a wonderful cause; every child has the right to grow up surrounded by love, care and attention and therefore we are very grateful to STEP Swindon for continuing to change the lives of many children for the better,” he said.
Event host Sally Holland said: “PPS Chartered Accountants has grown significantly in the past 30 years, and the real positive impact it has had on so many other firms and individuals is great to see.
“Hopefully this great event will shine a light on the positive impact that PPS Chartered Accountants has had on businesses, individuals and the wider community as a whole.”
