Another Big Year for the Makesworth Foundation

Harrow-based the Makesworth Foundation has released its latest impact update covering all activity undertaken across 2023.  The update reports that a total of 1,506,827 impacts were recorded and 75 projects were supported.

Sanjay Sah, Managing Director of Makesworth Accountants and founder of the Makesworth Foundation, said, “We would like to share our clients and supporters with a Christmas update and were astonished at just how much had been achieved.  The impact the Makesworth Foundation is having is growing and includes planting thousands of trees via Ecologi – 16,241 to date resulting in 137.95 tonnes of carbon reduction.  We plan to continue doing this for the long-term planting thousands more trees!

“We undertook a wide variety of direct charitable events in partnership with local charities and local team members in both Nepal and Ukraine.  We have recently stared to run regular charitable activities in both countries twice a month.  We continue to fund and donate in partnership with B1G1 creating diverse and significant global impacts.  We also became a permanent sponsor of Nepal Ru, an organisation that manages running events to promote health and well-being among Nepalese communities in the UK.

“We provide Scholarship to one deserving ACCA student every year in Nepal.  Starting in 2022 and continuing in 2023, due to the impressive potential of candidates, we also supported one extra student for a year’s ACCA subscription fees.

“Makesworth Accountants remains a very proud supporter of the Makesworth Foundation and this will continue across 2024.  Our plans for the Makesworth Foundation in 2024 include planning the inaugural Makesworth Foundation Charity Ball which will see 300 attendees gather together in London.  All funds raised will go to support the vital worth the Foundation undertakes.  We will also be registering the Makesworth Foundation with the UK’s Charity Commission.  This big step will see the Makesworth Foundation continue to provide funds to support a wide range of vital charitable projects.

“We will also be launching the Makesworth Foundation in Africa.  We’ve decided to increase our reach by supporting a country in Africa.  We have yet to choose which country but are very keen to support those in most need via a range of charitable projects, extending our reach even further.  Finally, Makesworth Accountants will donate 3% of its annual revenue to the Makesworth Foundation supporting the incredible and varied work it carries out.  Whilst a lot has been achieved there remains a lot to continue to do and I hope that our clients, colleagues, suppliers and community continue to support this vital work.”

What Our Clients Say...

Heather Johnson, Botanical Artist & Stationery Designer

I went on one of Rachel’s introduction to PR workshops and it was fantastic. She covered absolutely everything, explained it all in an understandable way and didn’t try to sell anything. She gave as much information as possible, answered all questions and she was just lovely. I would highly recommend Rachel for anything to do with PR and won’t hesitate to use her services in the future.

Ravi Summan

I was introduced to Rachel by an executive coach. My requirements were to provide quality, simple to understand content to engage with my target market and generate new customer enquiries in health and wellbeing. From my first discussion with Rachel, it was clear that she had the skills and empathy to provide a service to support the growth of my business. Rachel’s content writing and editing is very effective and her diligence ensures the right message is articulated. It is no surprise to me she has a strong track record of helping entrepreneurs and businesses of all sizes support their growth. Aside from her professional competencies, Rachel genuinely cares about people and working with her allows you to focus on your core business. For those who are new to building their own business or employed by a large corporate, you will get value and authenticity from Rachel’s content and PR services.

Jayne McIntosh, Director, Air Aesthetics Health & Wellness Clinics

I met with Rachel and was instantly impressed with her warmth, enthusiasm and ability to understand the key issues being faced. She took time to clarity objectives and the key tasks required. A quick study she was able to pinpoint the brand tone of voice accurately. Rachel’s’ copy writing skills have been excellent. She has written for my business website, advertorial pages in lifestyle magazine and has also written first class responses to awards entries which are curtailed in length. Rachel is just really, really good!

Victoria Curtis, Company Secretary, Mono Roofing Ltd

Rachel came to provide our company with an appraisal for the company PR, and we learnt an awful lot! Rachel taught us how to make the most of our marketing and advertising and how to make it work for us, to get the client’s we really want. Rachel has provided our company with a plan to follow, and we are gradually implementing these procedures, and we know that in doing so, it will really raise the profile of our company and get us the work we want. I would definitely recommend Rachel to manage your company’s PR.

Trusha Lakhani, MD, Great Business Matters t/a Trusha Lakhani

Rachel Hargrave is one of the best PR experts that I have met. She not only understands the best awards for her clients but also how to make the most of the opportunity for the client’s personality. Put simply Rachel gets people. She understands her clients and their goals and is with you all the way. I highly recommend Rachel Hargrave and The Awards people and RDZ PR.

Paul Gerrard, MD, Gerrard Cranes

Rachel and I met yesterday to discuss my existing marketing and options for how we can improve and develop the strategy for my business. It’s very clear that Rachel has vast amounts of experience, knowledge, ability and some great contacts to achieve some amazing results. If you need some professional guidance with PR/awards/marketing then I’d highly recommend you get in touch with Rachel and see how she can help you out.

Victoria Beale, CEO, Business Live Global

I’ve worked with Rachel for the past ten years on a variety of client projects and for my business also and the service we have received has been second to none, consistent and most importantly delivers RESULTS. I would have no hesitation recommending RDZ PR to my customers and Business Live Network. Thanks Rach! Here’s to another ten years and more!
