Abi Robinson, audit manager at RSM, said: “Supporting charity has been a big part of the company for the last few years as we always want to give back to our local community.
“We recently spoke to our staff about what they wanted from our charity work and a big thing was to support a local cause and know exactly how their fundraising is being spent.
“When we heard about all the fantastic work Gina and the GeeWizz charity has done, it seemed like the perfect fit.
“We are delighted to be supporting GeeWizz over the next 12 months and helping families in Suffolk.”
Gina said: “We cannot thank the staff at RSM enough for supporting our charity for the next 12 months.
“Transparent giving is at the heart of GeeWizz and every penny raised by RSM and their events will support families living in their community.”
