A Preston-headquartered chartered accountancy and business advisory firm has donated 400 Easter eggs to Preston North End’s Community and Education Trust to distribute to children who benefit from the trust’s work across Preston.

MHA Moore and Smalley began the annual Easter egg donation in 2020, during the UK’s first Covid-19 lockdown. The firm partnered with the Salvation Army for the initial donation of 350 Easter eggs.

Traditionally, the firm’s partners have given all staff an Easter egg each year. Due to staff working from home during the pandemic, the partners decided to instead donate the Easter eggs to good causes in the local community.

MHA Moore and Smalley’s Easter egg donations have continued each year and this year the firm has worked with its charity partner, the Community Foundation for Lancashire, to identify the PNE Community and Education Trust to distribute this year’s donation of 400 eggs.

Danny Houghton, partner and social impact lead, MHA Moore and Smalley, said: “Since we began the Easter egg donation initiative in 2020, MHA Moore and Smalley staff have been keen for us to continue this annually.

“As part of our Environmental, Social and Governance strategy, we have been working with the Community Foundation for Lancashire to help us ensure we make an impact in our local communities. 

“We want to be an organisation which uses our skills to help the next generation with financial education and awareness and one of the key aims of the work PNE Community and Education Trust does in the Preston area is to provide an education pathway for all to help people achieve their goals.

“Therefore, it felt like a natural fit this year to ask the trust to distribute the 400 Easter Eggs to children who benefit from the many initiatives their project offers in our local community.”

PNE Community and Education Trust delivers initiatives which create safer, stronger and more resilient communities and provides educational programmes in sport, enterprise and citizenship to support children who may face challenges with traditional learning environments.

Mohammed Patel, Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity and community engagement officer, PNE Community and Education Trust said: “We really appreciate the donation from MHA Moore and Smalley as it allows us to provide Easter Eggs to those most in need at this time of year. 

“They will be distributed across a number of different provisions we offer and the donation will bring smiles to faces.”

MHA Moore and Smalley became a founding investor in the Community Foundation for Lancashire last year. The organisation is designed to make an impactful and sustainable difference to those most in need and improve the lives of the county’s residents.
