Birmingham accountants hope to raise hundreds in the Great Birmingham 10k Business Challenge

Neal Aston, Managing Partner at JW Hinks

A team of ten employees from Edgbaston-based accountancy firm, JW Hinks LLP, are in training for this year’s ENGIE Business Challenge at the Simplyhealth Great Birmingham 10k as they aim to raise hundreds for Friends of Alfie Johnson.

The firm intends to enter two teams into this year’s race, which is due to take place in central Birmingham on 26 May 2019.

Runners include Alan Jobling, Amandeep Toor, Ben Butler, Bradley Adams, David Hewitt, Harvir Grewal, James Long, Lucy Pilkington, Shannon Harris and Sophie Hanks.

All of the money that the teams raise during this challenging run will go to the Friends of Alfie Johnson, which is the practice’s chosen annual charity.

The Friends of Alfie Johnson is solely committed to helping children with disabilities in the Dudley, Sandwell and Wolverhampton Boroughs of the Black Country and has helped hundreds of young people and their families since it was founded.

Neal Aston, Managing Partner at JW Hinks, said: “We are delighted to be supporting The Friends of Alfie Johnson with our team’s participation in the ENGIE Business Challenge.

“They are all training hard to be ready for the big day, so we hope that their efforts will lead to a fantastic fundraising total for this wonderful cause.”

JW Hinks’ participation in the Birmingham 10k Business Challenge will follow the success of their fundraising in 2018 when Team Alfie – made up of JW Hinks’ staff – raised over £500 by competing in the Great Birmingham Half Marathon.

JW Hinks has a long and proud history of supporting local causes by selecting a local charity to benefit from its fundraising.
