Planning is key for the summer months

It’s summertime at last – time to take a holiday, put your feet up and relax! Your beneficiaries are also away, yes?  Fantastic – if they are and don’t need you, then that’s great – look forward to seeing and supporting them again in the autumn.  Planning is the key to being needed during the summer and bringing in more volunteers or staggering time off across staff may be the way forward so that no one gets burnt out.

Lots of my clients who work closely with schools or keep to term time delivery use the holidays for reflecting on their organisation, putting together strategies for further growth and delivery.  Some clients use the break for reviewing annual delivery and looking to start a ‘new year’ in September with goals, targets, plans all in place for presenting to staff on their return.

Business planning, creating strategies for funding, auditing funding already done, these are all tasks that I can support you with on a face-to-face or digital basis over Zoom.  I am here to facilitate your own planning sessions with trustees or directors or undertake the planning sessions with you.  Give me a call to chat through your needs and let’s get your 2022/23 year off to a flying start.

Enjoy the time away if you can fit a break in, send me hot dog leg pictures – I love them!

If you need my assistance, email me on, or give me a call on 0772 9481010.


BHP raises £20,047 in Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge

A team of 60 people from BHP have raised an impressive £20,047 for charities across the UK after they completed the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge.

The charity trek began in Horton-in-Ribblesdale in the Yorkshire Dales, with the group tackling the 24.5-mile route incorporating 1,585m of ascent across the peaks of Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough – and returning back to the starting point in Horton-in-Ribblesdale.

All those who took part chose to either raise money for charities personal to them or to support BHP’s elected charity, Macmillan Cancer Support. The team set an ambitious target of £15,000 and they have managed to surpass that by some margin, raising an incredible total of £20,047.

James Houseman, senior manager at BHP and event project manager, said: “It was fantastic to see so many of the BHP team getting involved in our Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge. I am so proud of everyone who took part.

“The key word is challenge – this was a gruelling walk across hard terrain and not something to be taken lightly. Our team – both those who walked and those who were part of the support team – pulled together brilliantly on the day to raise money for many worthwhile causes across the country.

“It was a privilege to organise and to have raised more than £20,000 for so many different charities is an absolutely fantastic achievement. A huge well done to everyone who took part!”

BHP is ranked the second-best accountancy firm to work for in the UK, and the 35th best company to work for across Yorkshire and the Humber in the Best Companies Survey 2021.
