Abbey Tax 20 raises over £20,000!

In December 2016, Abbey Tax marked 20 years in business. In this time, the company has achieved a solid reputation for being one of the UK’s leading fee protection providers.

To celebrate this success and to recognise the anniversary, Abbey Tax decided to ‘give something back’ to the local community. Therefore, throughout 2017, we ran the Abbey Tax 20 initiative.

The aim was to undertake 20 charitable activities, raising money for a number of small charities local to our head office in Warwickshire – Hope4, New Directions, YoungMinds and Young Carers.

To start the ball rolling, in February Abbey Tax staff took part in a sponsored sleep out in Rugby. For one night, the team gained a little understanding of what homeless people experience during the winter months.

The remainder of the year saw a hive of activity, raising thousands of pounds for good causes. Here’s a reminder of the things the team got up to for the various charities and the total amounts rasied.

Abbey Tax achieved a total of over £10,000 in 2017. With the help of our parent compnay Markel's charitable giving matching programme, this figure was doubled to over £20,000!

This is an amazing achievement for all involved and we would like to thank our staff for getting behind Abbey Tax 20 so enthusistically, as well as their families and friends who offered such generous support and donations.
