Corporate Social Responsibility
Located in Gerrards Cross, we have been both, helping and supporting the local community and charities for a number of years. At Nunn Hayward Chartered Accountants we take our social responsibility extremely serious and believe that it is important to give back.
Supporting local community
We believe that a thriving local community is not only good for individuals but good for business too. We take social responsibility very seriously, because when we’re all working together it’s amazing what can happen! As well as working hard to provide our clients with the best possible service, we also help the community in a few key ways:
Gerrards Cross Traders Association (GXTA)
Nunn Hayward is a member of the Gerrards Cross Traders Association and on the committee help and assist the community in which we live and work ins supporting numerous local events. In 2015 Nunn Hayward were one of five major businesses to support and sponsor the Christmas Festival Evening to ensure that the town was lit up over the festive season.
Gerrard Cross Fun Run
The Gerrards Cross Fun Run is a bi-annual event and this year Nunn Hayward were again proud to be Gold Sponsors along with other local businesses. Team Nunn Hayward had a record number of runners this year of 23 staff and family entering (including 3 dogs). Money raised at this event go to three extremely worthy charities; Medical Detection Dogs, Kids in Sport and The Elizabeth Voaden Foundation.
Nunn Hayward often organises Dementia Friends evening to increase awareness of the disease within the community. Joint ventures with the local library and a certified Dementia Friend Champion. If you are interested in attending our next Dementia Friend evening, get in touch and you will be registered for our next event
Local schools and clubs
Supporting local schools and clubs through numerous activities. Each year local schools enter a competition to design our Christmas cards that we send out to all our clients (both printed and digitally). We also run a Mathematics Achievement Programme to encourage children to improve and enjoy maths in school.
Sponsoring local events and clubs
People work best when there’s a sense of community. This is why Nunn Hayward is committed to sponsoring local events and clubs – to make sure the individuals who make up our local community are living satisfying, meaningful, fun lives surrounded by a supportive society.
Thames Valley Investment Network (TVIN)
TVIN work with SMEs, entrepreneurs and companies seeking to raise finance by connecting them with highly active potential investors (‘business angels’), who frequently provide commercial experience and contacts, in addition to vital capital. Nunn Hayward have sponsored and provided support to TVIN for the last 7 years. We are also able to offer sound advice on setting up and general running of new enterprises, including more specific tailored advice on matters such as EIS, SEIS, Capital Allowance claims, R&D relief and patent box.

Gerrards Cross Cricket team
We are into our 6th year of sponsoring the local team and continue to support the league in which they play in.
South Bucks Business Breakfast Events
Since May 2015 Nunn Hayward has sponsored this local informal and information event. A new initiative set up from a select group of partner organisations dedicated to helping businesses analyse the key issues that business owners have told us are vital for them. This is part of an innovative new series of targeted breakfast events across the Thames Valley region designed around the needs of business leaders to better understand the challenges, identify the obstacles and plot how best to make change happen to deliver real business value.
It is also an opportunity to meet a select group of other peers from the South Bucks area and provides a great platform for high level networking with like-minded, local business people. By hosting such an event, we hope that we can promote local entrepreneurs to work together, sharing experience and knowledge. And the partners are keen this operates in a strict ‘no-sales’ environment so guests will not be hassled by pushy sales people.
