ICAS, PwC and KPMG support fund in memory of accountant who died in London attacks

A fund has been set up to support finance students in memory of Helen Jones,
killed in the terrorist attacks on London in July.

Jones worked for Phoenix Equity partners, the private equity firm, and
formerly for PwC and KPMG.

The fund is for students from the Lockerbie area, where Jones grew up, and
will provide financial assistance for students from there who pursue
accountancy, finance or management courses at university. Launched by The
Scottish Accountancy Trust for Education and Research, it has also been funded
by ICAS, PwC and KPMG.

Jones’ mother Liz Staffell said: ‘Helen left a big impression on everyone she
came across and whoever’s life she touched. She loved being an accountant and
the wide spectrum of careers it opened up to her. She also loved young people;
she was a leader at many Easter and summer camps during her late teens.

‘So I am especially pleased that a scholarship in her name combining both
these can go on to help young people from Lockerbie experience the opportunities
she so relished. It is precisely what she would have wanted.’
