SHOREDITCH ACCOUNTANTS MADE CHARITY DRAGON BOAT RACE A ROARING SUCCESS

Staff from Shoreditch accountancy firm, PJ Marks & Co LLP, tackled the Thames to raise money for children with heart conditions at the Children’s Heart Federation’s annual Dragon Boat Race.

The local business sponsored the event at which hundreds of parents and children attended to fundraise for the UK’s leading children’s heart charity.

Albie Turner, a partner at PJ Marks & Co LLP who has a heart condition, is passionate about supporting CHF’s work.

Albie Turner says: “The Children’s Heart Federation is a charity close to my heart and we were delighted not only to sponsor the Dragon Boat Race, but also to get our staff taking part.

“PJ Marks & Co LLP are very pleased that the event helped raise vital funds to support the 5,000 children a year born with heart conditions. Our firm will continue to work with CHF to help the charity provide life-changing services to these children and their families”.

Samantha Johnson from the Children’s Heart Federation says “We’re very grateful for the generosity and great spirit shown by the staff at PJ Marks & Co LLP. Their invaluable support helped make the Dragon Boat Race event a success”.
