The beneficiary: The Charity of Ann Howsden.
Based in Saffron Walden, The Charity of Ann Howsden provides services to prevent or relief poverty for children, young people, people with disabilities and the elderly in the Hinxton area.
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 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.
