TTR Barnes runs the Sunderland 10k

15th June 2021

We’re hoping fundraising won’t be taxing as we prepare to run the Sunderland 10k for If U Care Share!

Tax senior Scott Laight, receptionist Sarah Riddell, tax Manager Vikki Ashton and tax senior Paul Guthrie along with team members from our sister company Key Wealth Management are running to raise money for the suicide prevention charity.

The charity works to prevent and support families bereaved by suicide. Its lifesaving work includes workshops for young people to help improve emotional and mental health and support services to help people who have lost loved ones to suicide.

It’s a cause close to our hearts as it was co-founded by Dean Smith, the founder of the accountancy firm’s sister company, Key Wealth Management.

Together with other family members, Dean and his wife Shirley started the charity following the suicide of son Daniel, aged just 19. Since its launch in 2011 If U Care Share has supported more than 35,000 young people to improve their mental and emotional help.

Runner and TTR accountant Paul Guthrie said: “Lockdown has had such a huge impact on many people’s mental health, so the work If U Care Share is doing has become more important than ever.

“We’re hoping that by running the 10k we’ll not only raise much-needed money – but also awareness for this important cause.”
