Leading Bolton accountants, Cowgill Holloway turned yellow for the day to raise money for Bolton Lads and Girls Club’s mentoring project.
The fundraising aimed to raise money for young people who are on a waiting list to be matched with a trained mentor. Many young people have already benefitted from the mentoring project, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this April.
As part of the fundraising efforts, Patrons from across Bolton were assigned either “Team blue” or “Team yellow”, to match the Club’s corporate colours. Assigned as team yellow, Cowgill Holloway dressed in yellow, held a raffle draw and a yellow-themed cake sale in a bid to raise as much money possible.
By the end of the day, Cowgill Holloway and sister company, CHW Accounting had raised an incredible £364.50 to donate to Bolton Lads and Girls Club.
Kelly McFadden, Events Manager at Bolton Lads and Girls Club said: “A huge thank you to everyone at Cowgill Holloway & CHW for getting behind the Club’s Yellow and Blue Day and supporting this event. From their cake sale to their yellow dress down day, and everything in between, it was brilliant to see all the Cowgill Holloway staff getting so involved! The £364.50 raised by them will go towards the Yellow and Blue Day total and will make such a difference this year for many young people who are waiting for a place on our mentoring programme.”
Rob Lord, Partner at Cowgill Holloway said: “As a business with our roots in Bolton, it’s hugely important to support local causes in the community, and one which does such important work around the local area.
“The team really enjoyed raising money for Bolton Lads and Girls Club, and there was a real buzz around the office, with many of the team going shopping for yellow-related goods to wear as part of the dress-down Friday. It was great to see all of our staff ready and raring to go on the day to raise funds for such a good cause. We hope the money raised will help the lives of young people.”
