Accountancy firm raises £3300 for money skills education


Seventeen teams of golfers took part in a successful first Charity Golf Day event for chartered accountancy firm Langricks at Shrigley Hall in Macclesfield and raised over £3300.

Accountancy firm raises £3300 for money skills education


"All the money raised is going towards financial literacy in the young which we are passionate about helping to develop."
Chris Langrick, Chartered Accountant



Langricks has made an ongoing commitment to DebtAware – the specialist education arm of the national Debt Advice Foundation – to raise funds to support a unique ‘Money Skills for Life’ programme in primary schools.

The successful programme, which has been devised by children for children, operates in around 160 schools in Lancashire, but funds are needed to roll out the teaching into Cheshire and Yorkshire and across the UK.

Golfers endured blustery conditions for the good cause and family solicitors, Athi Law,  from Sheffield, came out top dogs in the team 4 ball competition with a brilliant score given the weather.

Nearest the pin was Langricks’ own Chris Howells, the firm’s new Assistant Manager, and longest drive was won by Martin Bennett, playing as a guest in the CurveLine Design team.

Chris Langrick commented: “It was a great turnout and we are thrilled with the initial money raised – it is going towards financial literacy in the young which we are passionate about helping to develop.”

Brian Souter, Education Manager at DebtAware, also spoke about the charity’s work and progress made since launch four years ago. “We are a small charity tackling big issues so are hugely grateful for Langricks and their support to date.”

He called for help in opening doors in Cheshire schools and got a great response from golfers turned Governors and others with a keen interest in their own children’s financial education.

Raffle prizes on the night which helped contribute to the total included a signed Liverpool shirt by Steven Gerard, home match tickets to Huddersfield Town FC and a basket of Italian delicacies from Casa Italia in Wilmslow.
