TO mark the firm's tenth anniversary, Curo Chartered Accountants has embarked on a "10 for 10" mission for charity.

The team at the Bromsgrove practice is busy completing a series of challenges for charities to celebrate a decade supporting local businesses and individuals with financial services.

The first challenge started with Chris Townsend’s cycle ride across the Cotswolds raising money for the NSPCC, with further activities completed including a "Doggy Decathlon", golf day for New Hope Worcester, swimming a "Memory Mile" for Alzheimer’s Society and a Sight Concern "Colour Run".

To tackle challenge number nine, Curo is busy training for the Higgs & Sons football tournament in aid of the Stroke Association. Suzanne Blundell, the firm's practice development manager, said: “We’ve always wanted to do something a bit special to mark our 10th year in business and we’re continually looking at ways to support local charities, hence the birth of our ‘10 for 10 mission’. Next month the nation will go football crazy for Euro 2016 in France, so it seems fitting to take part in a tournament ourselves, the Higgs & Sons football tournament in aid of the Stroke Association.

“It was difficult to choose just one charity for us to support for our anniversary as our practice serves such as wide range of people who do so much good for the community. With this challenging schedule we hope to support as many charities as possible and I’m immensely proud of the team who have really embraced the 10 for 10 mission.”
