13 Mar Loughton accountants get behind tough charity challenge
One of Loughton’s leading chartered accountancy firms, Haslers, has pledged its support to a sponsored cycling challenge, which saw riders travel more than 550km through Vietnam and Cambodia.
The Mitsubishi Electric Saigon to Angkor Wat 2019 ride, took place between 14 – 26 February 2019, as participants cycled through the villages and waterways in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta, reaching the famous temple and UNESCO site at Angkor Wat.
Haslers supported one of their clients during the ride, Eddie Maxwell, who along with the rest of his team was raising money for The Ark Centre, which works with children between two and five years old with Autism and/or social communication difficulties.
The fundraisers hope to collect more than £100,000 in donations to help the centre move to larger premises to facilitate more children who are in desperate need of help.
Speaking about the challenge, Eddie said: “The Ark Centre have done such good work that they now have a waiting list, so the aim of this fundraiser is to help them with their expansion so that they can host more training sessions for the families of those children who require their help.”
Jon O’Shea, Chairman at Haslers Chartered Accountants, said: “We were very excited to be supporting this charity challenge, which is looking to raise an incredible amount for such a wonderful local cause.”
