Awards recognise community success

The winners of the Everybody Counts awards, the scheme run jointly by the ICAEW and Accountancy Age, were announced last night at the institute's annual dinner in London.

Presented by Sainsbury’s group chief executive Sir Peter Davis at Charetred Accountants Hall, the awards are designed to celebrate – and encourage ? community work carried out by chartered accountants in England and Wales.

Bungee jumps and school trips to Winchester are not activities commonly associated with the working lives of chartered accountants and it was these and other projects that captured the imaginations of the judging panel.

The award winners of each category were:

Member in Practice: Delia Butler from KPMG in Manchester, for voluntary work with the Home Farm Trust, a national charity providing residential and day care services to adults with learning difficulties.

Member in Business: Christopher Underwood from the Automobile Association in Basingstoke, for his voluntary role as treasurer of the Jubilee Sailing Trust, a national charity that owns and operates the world’s only tall ships, purpose built to be sailed by crews of able bodied and physically disabled people.

Member of a Small Practice: Ron Enticott, sole practitioner from Airde Accountancy in Surrey, for voluntary work with a variety of schools and charities.

Younger Member: Victoria Fryer from Naylor Wintersgill in Bradford, for organising fundraising events in aid of Multiple Sclerosis research.

Retired Member: Charles Sherwood from Surrey, for financial work carried out on a voluntary basis for a horticultural therapy unit for the elderly, disabled and those with learning difficulties.
