40 Years, 100 Miles….1 Day!
Chester-based accountancy group Champion is this year celebrating its 40th Birthday, with a year-long fundraising effort to mark the occasion.
The “40 for 40 Fundraiser” will involve team members from all five Champion offices coming together in an attempt to raise £40,000 throughout the year for a selection of nominated charities. And in an attempt to reach their ambitious target, Champion will be staging one main company-wide event, the “Champion Century Cycle Challenge”.
Taking place on Sunday 19th June, the Century Cycle Challenge will see Champion team members, clients, contacts, friends and family get on their bikes in the name of charity.
Setting off from Chester, the riders will be taken on a punishing 100 mile journey round each of the five Champion offices, visiting Manchester, Southport and Preston before ending their journey in Blackpool… all in one day!
Group Managing Partner GED COSGROVE comments, “The Champion Century Cycle Challenge is a chance for the five Champion offices to come together as a team and achieve something great. Despite the cold and dark nights, many team members are underway with their training already - myself included!”
“This is the first event of this kind Champion has ever attempted and we are all committed to making it a success. I think it will be a memorable event in Champion’s history.”
Formed in 1971 by Fred Champion, Champion & Co was predominantly a provincial practice, providing audit, accounts and taxation advice to local businesses. The original office was located on Memorial Road, close to where Champion’s Head Office is located today.
Group Managing Partner Ged Cosgrove joined the practice in 1985 and became a Partner in 1986.
Between 2003 and 2007, Champion experienced growth through acquisition and today offers an extensive range of accountancy and business advisory services, employing over 100 team members across five offices.
