Staff at Leigh Christou are joining in with the 5k Santa Dash through Leamington Spa on Sunday 10th December in aid of Myton Hospice. It might be a competitive dash, or even a dawdle for some, but either way we hope to raise funds in aid of this amazing cause.

Chris Christou, Senior Director, said that as a company we know about the great work that is undertaken by Myton Hospice and we have proudly raised funds for them during our fortieth anniversary year. This would help round off the year if we could raise as much as possible with our jumping Santa’s. To help show your support please kindly make your donation on our Just Giving page. Thank you so much!

Local accountancy firm Leigh Christou celebrated its 40th year in business this month with a summer evening party at The Riverside Glasshouse in Jephson Gardens, Leamington Spa. The evening saw colleagues professional contacts and clients come together at the beautiful riverside venue, where they enjoyed a selection of street food, drinks and classical music from the Signature String Quartet.

As part of the anniversary celebrations, Leigh Christou proudly partnered with Myton Hospice charity and on the night they hosted an auction with a selection of amazing prizes, all of which raised a fantastic £6,000.

Chris Christou, Director of the firm said “ the summer evening party proved to be a great success and it was a great pleasure to see so many clients, colleagues and professional contacts with whom we have developed long and enduring relationships over such a long period of time, come together in celebration of this momentous achievement. It proved to be a tremendous evening and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended, the success of which was further capped by the outcome of the auction which raised an enormous amount of money for a very worthwhile charity”
