Ernst & Young is going all out for Sport Relief this year, as the professional services firm marks over 11 years of support as both honorary accountant and corporate fundraiser.

The Cambridge office of Ernst & Young is again hosting numerous fundraising activities in and around its office today (Friday 19 March), including:


  • Innnnn One! Cambridge will be holding their own "Bit of Bully" - join in for some darts fun!
  • Question of Sport challenge
  • Take part in the hoopathon - keep those hula hoops spinning!
  • Run. walk, swim or cycle a mile
  • Rush hour cash collection in Cambridge

Over the past 11 years, the firm has raised over £500,000 for Sport Relief and its sister charity Comic Relief. Through its role as honorary accountants, the professional services firm also processes postal donations amounting to around £2.5million each year.


Cathy Taylor, Ernst & Young’s senior partner in Cambridge commented: “In addition to fundraising, Ernst & Young’s role as honorary accountant helps to ensure that Sport Relief is able to fulfil its Golden Pound Promise: that every pound raised goes to support a good cause. We are delighted to celebrate our 11 year anniversary of working with this important charity.”
