Aecus has raised over £3,500 for the Bright Stars club, in Bury St Edmunds, through a Charity Quiz organised by the consulting firm. The funding will support children with disabilities on Saturdays with a range of activities focused on creating fun and founding new friendships.

The UK-based sourcing consultancy has managed to collect £,3675 for the Bright Stars club, an activities centre run by Activities Unlimited, a Suffolk-based charity that focuses on children with disabilities. The charity aims to provide those between 0-25 with a range of fun activities that allow them to make new friends and enjoy the same opportunities of children without disabilities. Actives run by the charity include, among others, adventure activities, arts and crafts, overnight breaks, sports.

Aecus supports Bright Stars charity

The consulting firm ran a Charity Quiz earlier in the year through which it was able to raise the funds. The funds will further support the Bright Stars club, in Bury St Edmunds, to provide activities for children in the local community – and time off for their parents.

A cheque of the collected money was presented to Bright Stars lead Steve Turpie by Aecus Managing Director Rick Simmonds, who founded the firm back in 2002, originally as ALS Consulting.

The Bright Stars club is open every Saturday and offers 10-19 year olds a range of activities during the term and in the holiday period.

Earlier this month Aecus was acquired by The Hackett Group, a global consulting and benchmarking specialist.
