Just Giving for Emie

Joyce Townley from the Payroll Department here at K.A.Farr & Co. is raising money for treatment for her 11-month-old baby granddaughter Emie. Emie has been diagnosed with having Plagiocephaly (flat head syndrome) and Brachycephaly, which requires her to be fitted with a customised cranial helmet called a DOC band and the treatment has to be started before she is 14 months old. Unfortunately, the treatment is only available privately which means the money needs to be raised in a very short space of time to give her the best future possible. Once the band has been fitted Emie has to return to the clinic, […]

Practice Makes Perfect?

KA Farr & Co Accountants recent team building afternoon at Southport’s Crazy Golf course paid dividends for staff member Debbie Kelly. While playing at Ormskirk Golf Club she hit a hole-in-one at the 14th par 3! “I knew I’d hit a good shot as it sailed off in a direct line to the flag” she told colleagues. “But the green is surrounded by bunkers and it often drops right into one of them.” Debbie says “It was a wonderful feeling to see it go in the hole from the tee but we still had to be totally sure by peering […]

The number crunchers managed to sort themselves into 4 teams of 3 but saved a fortune by doing it in one leg – the Final. Without any yellow cards being given out, or penalties (unlike HMRC!) the winning team was ‘The Managers’ with Warwick getting a prize for the lowest scoring card. Refreshments were taken with the prize giving at the local 19th Hole and teams agreed, like England, to try harder […]
