The team at Elsby & Co will complete their community support for 2016 with a visit to a local homeless shelter to give gifts to those in need.

The accountants – with offices in Sywell, Milton Keynes, Market Harborough, Rushden and Corby – have replaced the sending of Christmas cards in recent years with a donation to charity.

This year, they have chosen to support Northampton Hope Centre - a non-profit organisation which provides shelter and other services to homeless people in and around the Northampton area.

Members of the Elsby team will be visiting the centre personally to hand over 100 shoe boxes – donated by their client Church’s shoes – which Elsby & Co staff have filled with a range of gifts.

Marketing manager, Jema Daya, said: “We pride ourselves on being an active and real part of the local community. Most of our clients are small and medium-sized business people who live and work in the region and this is our way of giving back to a locality that has supported our business growth for the last 25 years.”
