Accountants choose first annual charity

Accountancy firm KPMG has formed an association with the Motor Neurone Disease Association.

KPMG recently decided to take on an annual charity, highlighting and supporting a different cause each year, and staff voted for the MNDA to be the first one to be supported.

The recent Santa Dash raised over £500 in sponsorship and the company intends to run further fundraising events every month.

The MNDA is a local, independently funded charity, which receives support and backing from the national organisation.

Its chair on the Island Sue Robinson says having KPMG's support is a fantastic boost.

Motor neurone disease is a progressive, fatal illness which can affect anyone.

Life expectancy after the onset of symptoms is between two to five years.
