Staff from both solicitors Howes Percival LLP and accountants MHA MacIntyre Hudson have gone head-to-head in a race this month to see who can donate the most Easter Eggs towards a very worthy cause: vulnerable children living in Northamptonshire.
Easter is just around the corner and not all children are able to share the excitement of Easter with a chocolate egg. Jeanette Walsh of Northamptonshire County Council, also known as the ‘Northamptonshire Easter Bunny’, has bought back the Easter Egg challenge for businesses to do their best, rally their staff and to donate the most eggs they can to children in care in Northamptonshire.
Howes Percival staff have been busy donating Easter Eggs in a friendly challenge with MHA MacIntyre Hudson, trying to improve on the combined 200 eggs that were donated by both firms last year. All donated Easter Eggs go to children from families who are receiving support from Northamptonshire County Council. Often these children are going through difficult personal circumstances and may not otherwise get an Easter Egg, so Jeanette has made it her personal challenge to try and raise over 5,000 eggs from businesses across the county.
The Howes Percival / MHA MacIntyre Hudson donated eggs were collected by Jeanette Walsh on Friday 17 March and the firm’s smashed last year’s record by donating 253 eggs.
Gerald Couldrake, Partner at Howes Percival LLP stated:
“We are delighted to be involved again this year with the wonderful work that Jeanette is doing with the Council. The generosity shown by the business community across Northamptonshire highlights the importance of supporting our younger generation wherever we can, to ensure everyone enjoys an Easter Egg, irrespective of their circumstances.”
Handing over the Easter Eggs to Jeannette Walsh of Northamptonshire County Council at Howes Percival’s new Northampton premises at Rushmills was Trainee Lawyer Victoria Howe and Business Services Manager, Michael Meakin-Blackwell from MHA MacIntyre Hudson.
