Partners and staff at Essex-based accountancy firm Rickard Keen have been raising valuable funds for medical workers in some of the world’s poorest and most war-torn countries after staging a number of events in aid of Médecins Sans Frontières.
As a firm which provides specialist accountancy services to the GP sector, Rickard Keen is a member of the Association of Independent Specialist Medical Accountants (AISMA), which is marking its 15th anniversary by raising funds for the charity.
In recent months, Rickard Keen has held a dress-down day, a cake sale and a raffle as well as a competition to guess the weight of colleague Faye Radmall’s yet-to-be-born baby.
Around £500 has been raised, which was handed over to AISMA at their conference on Thursday, May 13. The organisation is now close to raising its target figure of £15,000.
Rickard Keen partner Alan Worsdale said: “As longstanding providers of accountancy services to the medical profession, we are proud to be members of AISMA and were delighted to be able to support them during their fundraising drive.
“As always, our team made a great effort to get involved and do their bit for charity, while having some fun at the same time.”
