Now is the time for chartered accountants to aim for one of four £2000 prizes for the charity they help and support.
ICAEW (the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales) is calling all members who are involved in voluntary work that Friday 27 April is the deadline for this year’s entries for the 2012 Everybody Counts awards.
Any member of ICAEW involved in voluntary work can apply, and four winners will each receive £2000 for the charity or community-based project with which they have been working.
Everybody Counts is run by the Institute to encourage the voluntary work that many members of the Institute are involved in and to recognise the difference chartered accountants can make to their local community. The awards also help connect volunteers with a project or charity looking for assistance.
The awards are split into four categories: younger member (under 35), member in business, member in practice and retired member. The winner of each category is selected on the basis of the time, level of involvement and commitment they have devoted to the charity or project as well as the difference their work has made.
The winner will be announced at an ICAEW Charity Awards Evening on 25 June at Chartered Accountants Hall in London.
Members wishing to enter the awards should visit www.icaew.com/everybodycounts and apply online. Alternatively, they can contact Jade Peters on 020 7920 8692.
