Leading Scottish accountancy and business advisory firm Johnston Carmichael has raised over £2,000 for two chosen charities, as part of its ongoing charity initiative.

Staff at the firm’s Fraserburgh office participated in a series of fundraising activities, including a bungee jump which raised over £1,600.

Billy Smith, at Johnston Carmichael’s Fraserburgh Office, along with his wife Heather, participated in the bungee jump last year to mark a joint birthday celebration.

The funds raised by Johnston Carmichael were donated to the local chosen charity, CLAN (Fraserburgh) and firm wide charity, Guide Dogs Scotland.

Commenting, Billy Smith said: “At the heart of what we do is making a difference to the local community, and we do that through donating our time as well as through our ongoing fundraising efforts.

“We hope that the contribution from our Fraserburgh office will help to support and continue the brilliant work that CLAN is doing every day.

“Johnston Carmichael would like to thank everyone who donated to these chosen charities and would also like to thank the staff and customers of The Ship Inn who contributed a substantial amount to our bungee jump.”

The donation was presented by the Johnston Carmichael team, to Lucy Whiteman, services manager with CLAN, at the accountancy firm’s Fraserburgh office on Wednesday, August 20.

The firm also announced that during the year 2013/14, the firm has raised a grand total of £59,558 for various charities.

Johnston Carmichael has over 600 staff and partners based in 11 strategic locations across Scotland.

The company is the largest independent firm of Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers in Scotland and one of the Top 20 firms in the UK.
