Community Impact Award
"We’re delighted that Kung Fu Accounting is the Xero Community Impact winner. As a team we were blown away by the approach Kung Fu takes to helping others and the community around them to thrive and succeed. We especially loved the variety of causes they support, from the homeless to the environment, and the variety of forms of support, with over 150 hours of pro bono time given over the past year between just three staff members.
Kung Fu Accounting are the pinnacle of community impact. We’re so impressed by the sheer amount of initiatives that they carried out over the last 12 months and continue to do so.
Here are some examples of their amazing achievements
Contributed to feeding 280 people in the Stroud district, including 10 long-term homeless individuals in their home town
Provided hats to 25 homeless people in Ipswich and 25 in Cheltenham, via Beanies Masato
Directly supported 60 local businesses through covid-19 — indirectly helping many more
