Our giving

We are proud to be a fixture in the Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire communities in which we live and work. Along with our regular staff-led fundraising as part of our LB150 fund we also support local and national good causes on both a firm-wide and individual level.

In the last 12 months staff across our offices have, among other things:

  • Competed in a muddy run
  • hosted a ten-pin bowling night
  • held various mini-office competitions
  • hosted quiz nights
  • cycled from London to Amsterdam to raise funds for Prostate Cancer UK
  • held coffee mornings as part of the Macmillan Cancer World’s Biggest Coffee Morning
  • ran a succession of races of varying lengths for a number of different charities
  • taken part in a Dragon Boat Festival for East Coast Hospice
  • taken part in a variety of golf days for different charities
  • supported OpenChristmas in Great Yarmouth.


Our staff give freely of their own time, donating almost 4000 hours a year to a range of different organisations in the region. They also get involved in a variety of school mentoring programmes around Norfolk and Suffolk. We have this year expanded our support into Cambridgeshire now that we have opened our office in Ely.

LB150

In 2008, as part of our 150th anniversary celebrations we launched our LB150 fund. For the next 5 years, staff and partners worked hard to raise over £150,000 for local good causes. A staff led panel chose the causes who would benefit.

Our fund is still going strong and to date we’ve raised over £200,000. Our staff get involved with fundraising through dress down days, bowling nights, quizzes, golf days and more.

In 2016 we were able to support 14 local organisations, including:
  • East Anglia Anchorage Trust in Great Yarmouth
  • Waveney Domestic Violence & Abuse Forum, in Lowestoft
  • Little Miracles CIO in Ely
  • 4Cs (Centres for Christian Care and Counselling) in Norwich
  • ENYP in Norwich

The LB150 Fund is currently closed for applications to receive grants and will reopen in 2017. Anyone can apply to receive funds, which is administered by the Norfolk Community Foundation on our behalf. Visit their website to find out how to apply.

The foundation recently celebrated their tenth anniversary and created this video to celebrate.

Pro Bono

Our local community is important to us and we are proud to play an active role in supporting it. As well as raising money for our own community fund, the LB150 fund, we support over 100 local groups and charities with free or discounted fees on our professional services.
These groups receive the same expert service as any of our clients.
Our staff and partners are just as generous with their own time, a recent survey revealed that between them they give almost 4000 hours a year to various organisations on a voluntary basis. Among other roles, they act as governors in schools, town councillors, trustees, children’s group leaders and sports club officers.

Inspired Youth

We feel strongly that as a firm committed to our local community we have a responsibility to support our young people.

One of the ways that we do this is through supporting Inspired Youth, an organisation whose primary focus is to bring young people and businesses together. We have been closely involved with them for three years, supporting activities which have reached almost 4000 young people in our local area.

Some of the activities that we have been involved in include enterprise days at local schools and a large financial services event called ‘My future in finance’. We are pleased to have been recognised for our involvement, and have won awards including ‘supporting business of the year’ for the last two years and one of our employees was awarded ‘new supporting mentor of the year’ in 2014.

Being a part of Inspired Youth is not just about giving back to the community, through the programme we are able to offer personal development opportunities to our staff helping them to develop new skills. We are also able to attract school leavers, graduates and apprenticeship scheme applicants through Inspired Youth.
