Hugill Gordon and the Charity of Ann Howsden

By providing software training and bookkeeping advice, chartered accountants Hugill Gordon helped The Charity of Ann Howsden put more of its money towards the needs of its beneficiaries.

The Charity of Ann Howsden is a wonderful resource for the residents in the Parish of Hinxton. It was good to be able to assist them in this way.

The project

The Charity approached Cambridge ProHelp as they needed some help with managing their financial records. Hugill Gordon accepted this project, with Director Gordon Round meeting the charity to discuss their requirements. 

Hugill Gordon agreed to supply the charity with a copy of financial recording software – QuickBooks Pro 2012 – and then provided on-going training on how to use the system and general bookkeeping advice. In all, the firm gave 11 hours of pro bono time to the charity over a six month period, putting it in a better position to maintain its financial records and produce its accounts in-house.

This support saved the charity in the region of £1,650, letting it use money that would otherwise have gone to pay accountants on supporting its many beneficiaries.
