Accountants go back to front for dyslexia

An accountancy firm in Douglas has been back to front today (Friday).

A fund-raising day for the Manx Dyslexia Association has been organised by One Accountants Limited to celebrate its first anniversary, and several events have been taking place.

Directors and senior managers swapped roles with more junior staff and did filing and shredding, covered reception, and made tea and coffee.

At lunchtime staff were out with buckets in Strand Street, Douglas in back to front fancy dress and there was a 'coffee morning' in the afternoon, with back to front games.

Dyslexia affects one in ten people and the Manx Dyslexia Association says its delighted One Accounts Limited has chosen to make a contribution to the cause.

Dyslexia Awareness Week is currently taking place in the United Kingdom.

More information about the work of the Manx Dyslexia Association can be found at manxdyslexia.org.
