Foxley Kingham, Luton-based chartered accountants and business advisers, has announced its selected charity partners, who will benefit from a year of fund raising to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary.

From 32 nominated charities and good causes, 17 have been chosen to receive financial support:
• Autism Bedford
• Dogs Trust
• Families United Network
• Friends of Chums
• Keech Hospice Care
• L&D: Neonatal ICU, Maternity Bereavement and Cancer Unit
• Level Trust
• Luton, South Beds and Harpenden Samaritans
• Luton Town FC Community Trust
• Mind BLMK (local branch)
• Rett UK
• Road Victims Trust
• The Karen Trust
• The Noah Enterprise
• Tokko Youth Space
• Wildlife Trust for Bedfordshire Cambridgeshire & Northamptonshire
• Womens Aid in Luton
Tara Aldwin, chair of the Foxley Kingham Anniversary Trust, said:
“It was an incredibly hard decision with so many good causes nominated. As a team we decided to support charities working in the local area, particularly smaller charities where it was felt the funds would go further.”
Foxley Kingham is arranging a year of fundraising activities including a charity football tournament in partnership with Luton Town FC Community Trust on 23rd May, a Gala Dinner on 14th September at Offley Place, gin tastings, race nights and sporting events.
