Stockport based accountants and business advisors Clarke Nicklin have announced a new partnership with local charity When You Wish Upon A Star.

When You Wish Upon A Star is a charity which grants the wishes of children living with a life threatening illness. It was founded in 1990 and since then has granted over 16,000 Wishes across the UK. These wishes can range from meeting sporting heroes, to swimming with dolphins, holidaying in Disneyland and of course the annual Lapland trip to meet the real Father Christmas.

Clarke Nicklin employees are aiming to raise as much as possible to enable the charity to make very sick children’s dreams come true.

Andrew Baggott, managing partner at Clarke Nicklin commented; “It was important to me that staff were engaged with whichever charity we chose to partner up with, so we put the decision out to a vote. When You Wish Upon a Star won by a landslide! It is a fantastic cause and I’m delighted to support them going forward.”

Clarke Nicklin employees are kick-starting the fundraising by taking part in an It’s A Knockout challenge on Sunday 23rd August. The entry cost, of £500 for a team, is being donated by Clarke Nicklin. You can sponsor the team by visiting
