UHY Ross Brooke Chartered Accountants

Supporting local Charities

Last week, one of our staff Jenny Bowden, met Judith Colby from the Lions Club of Newbury Charity Fireworks who explained that thousands of Newbury locals responded with disappointment when they learnt earlier this year that the annual fireworks at Newbury Racecourse were cancelled.

The Lions roared following the encouragement of local support and after lengthy negotiations with the racecourse, an agreement was reached to allow the event to go ahead.

Some of the previous supporters aren’t available due to having committed to alternate events, so the Lions are in need of help to make the event happen.

Ross Brooke like to make things happen for our community, clients and staff alike so a simple sponsorship payment was a cert.

Sole traders, partnerships and Limited companies can deduct charity sponsorship payments from your business profits before you pay tax by treating them as business expenses.

To obtain a tax deduction for the sponsorship you need to show how your business expects to benefit wholly and exclusively for the purpose of your trade I.e. to increase awareness of your business.

Sponsors will be recognised in a number of ways:
• In the Newbury Weekly News on November 10th in a ‘Thank you to our sponsors’ page: Name, logo and contact details
• On Newbury Lions Fireworks Website
• On the Fireworks page of Newbury Lions website
• On Newbury Lions Facebook page

*A recent post on Facebook has reached over 11 000 people!

If you would like to sponsor please email fireworks@newburylions.org.uk for a sponsorship form as soon as possible submission must be no later than Monday 31st October to be sure of inclusion in the Newbury Weekly News.
