Champion Accountants’ Blackpool office has been praised for its accountancy and business advisory support to Fylde Coast YMCA, since 1997.

Established in 1922, the charity forms part of the worldwide YMCA movement and for the past 96 years has extended its work into nine communities to now manage 18 sites.

Now operating 10 leisure facilities, it intends to help everyone achieve their full physical, social, cultural and spiritual potential.

In 1997, John Cronin, chief executive, inset, began his leadership at the organisation. Developing from one small site and 12 staff, to 18 sites and 600 employees, John described the past twenty years as a dramatic transformation.

He said: “We’ve been working with Champion Accountants for a long time and their level of service has never changed. The team has always supported us, especially during periods of growth.’’ The charity is working on a multi-million pound upgrade of its site at Lakeside in Ulverston.

Debbie Thorn, director at Champion said: “It’s great to receive such warm feedback and we look forward to continuing to support and advise.”
