Lincolnshire based accountancy firm, Nicholson’s Chartered Accountants, have chosen the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance as the firm’s first ever charity of the year.
Fifty employees from the firm were asked to nominate a charity and then cast their votes. In a closely contested internal poll, the Helicopter Emergency Medical Service based at RAF Waddington emerged top.
Community Fundraiser for the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance, Faye Nam said “It is fantastic that Nicholson’s have chosen us as their Charity of the Year and we are definitely looking forward to the year ahead. We need to raise £2.5million every year to support the operations of the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance and to keep our yellow Ambucopter flyer. The Charity doesn’t receive any direct government funding so relies entirely on the generous donations from members of the public and local businesses just like Nicholson’s”.
Nicholson’s Chartered Accountants has offices in Lincoln and Market Rasen. The firm has been serving local businesses in Lincolnshire for the past 90 years. Director; Emma Murray who specialises in Charity and Education accounting commented “We felt it was really important to support a local charity and the Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance do a fantastic job helping save lives 365 days a year. Lincolnshire has some very remote locations and you never know when you might need the services of the Ambucopter. Our staff will be undertaking various fundraising activities throughout the year to raise the much needed funds for this very worthy Charity”.
The Charity has recently taken delivery of a brand new state-of-the-art helicopter; the AW169 is faster, flying at speeds of 190 mph, it has greater endurance, allowing the pilots to fly for longer without the need to refuel. In addition the new helicopters will provide many enhanced benefits to patient care; allowing medical crews 360 degree unobstructed access to their patients, greatly increasing the specialist critical care that can be delivered in flight and positively impacting upon a patients’ chance of survival and recovery.

After some good weather for a couple of weeks, all eyes turned to the forecasts for C2C2C day. The weather had turned but would we be lucky, would we avoid the rain and wind.
With 24 hours to go it looked promising with heavy rain forecast the day before but not on the day. So it was a shock to the system, although we should have known, to wake up to the sound of tiny rain drops hitting the window!
“It’s ok it will clear up for 7AM”.
Oh no, it wouldn’t. In fact it rained/ drizzled all day. “The conditions were terrible, wet, misty and cold” recalled team Nicholsons rider Richard Hallsworth who was riding the event for the fourth time.
Setting off at 7:45AM the team were damp but in good spirits. “We’d trained really hard for the event this year and when we set off we weren’t going to let a little drizzle dampen our spirits” said Julie Newbury who was riding C2C2C for the first time.
As the team, accompanied this year by family and clients, wound through the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside it became obvious that it was going to be a long day. A mixture of rain, standing water, road resurfacing and general debris from the verge meant that there were a huge number of punctures as Jim Carratt, riding his second event explained “Every few miles you would see little groups at the side of the road fitting new inner tubes. We were lucky to only get 2 between the six of us”
This year the team were supported by Dani and Vicki who followed the team and were able to help other teams who had puncture troubles! “It was brutal out there.” commented Dani. She added “We were pleased to be in the car but happy we could offer help as we saw people in trouble”.
For the fourth year Nicholsons sponsored the feed station. Known now as Mrs Hemingby, Steph Smith was again in charge of the operations. “It’s usually a great day in the sun but this year was different. There were some really tired legs out there but the atmosphere was brilliant. Everybody accepted that you can’t arrange the weather and just got on with it.
I have seen cleaner mountain bikers though!”
All of the team finished safely and whilst they were tired, dirty and cold deep down they had, had a great day.
“This is one of the best cycle sportive rides in Lincolnshire. It’s exceptionally well organised and supported by Lincolnshire’s business community who ride in large teams to raise funds for charity” commented Richard “We look forward to this event every year and are proud to support it”.

From hosting a mini knight, in partnership with EBP and the Nomad Trust, to team mascot Worzel making his second appearance at the Lincolnshire Show, Lincolnshire based accountancy firm Nicholsons Chartered Accountants are celebrating another successful year at the Lincolnshire Show.
With their pitch in front of the main ring, visitors were not only treated to a great view of activities but were also at the heart of the Show. “Our pitch was great but we were also very lucky to host a mini knight as part of the mini Knights Trail at this years show” commented Director, Richard Hallsworth. Hosting a knight from the “mini knights trail” gave visitors the chance to see some of the excellent artwork produced by students from Boston Grammar School who had worked in partnership with EBP.
This year, visitors also had the chance to meet artists from the Lincoln Knight’s Trail. Artist Erin Fleming who painted Pedal Pride, sponsored by Nicholsons was present and gave the visitors an insight into the inspirations behind her design. Knight artists Jon Garside and Amy Sayer were also present to meet visitors and share their experience in painting the knights.
Nicholsons were joined by Matt Corrigan from Lincoln Business Improvement Group who spoke of their aim and vision for Lincoln. Rachel Hewitt who was present with Nicholsons throughout the two-day event also shared how the Knights Trail would help expand the work of the Nomad Trust, helping the homeless and providing support and shelter.
Director Richard Hallsworth said “The 2017 show has been our most successful yet. We were extremely pleased to have delegates and artists involved in Knight’s Trail with us this year. It was great to put the spotlight on the Knights Trail at the Lincolnshire Show which is such a positive event for Lincolnshire”.
Last but not least, Worzel once again enjoyed his two days of fame out in the sun at the Showground. Worzel the Farming accountant enjoyed himself; visiting clients at the other exhibitors. Worzel and everyone at Nicholsons look forward to the 2018 Lincolnshire Show again next year.

Staff from Nicholsons held its Great Nicholsons Bake Off in conjunction of World Baking Day to raise funds for The Little Princess Trust following the success of the Cake Break event for MS Society in March.
The in-house competition saw a great number of staff submitting their bakes for a chance win the Great Baker title. The cakes were judged based on their shape, surface, texture and flavour by Aimee, a baker when she is not with her calculator for the day.
Becky Wells won the competition with her carrot cake topped with candies. Emma Murray, a Director at the firm said “It is a great way for us to engage with our staff and raise money for a selected charity at the same time”.
The day ended with a cake sale from the submission received. All funds raised goes to the said charity.
