On Friday 21 September, Grant Thornton in the Cayman Islands came together for the annual ‘GT in the Community’ corporate social responsibility day.
Each year, Grant Thornton’s 50,000 employees close office doors as all staff are encouraged to get involved in local community projects, with a promise of the global initiative to ‘Act, Commit and Share’. This year, the team supported the YMCA at their Field of Dreams site in George Town. ‘The Y provide invaluable support and resources for the local community’ said Dara Keogh, Managing Partner of the audit practice, ‘and we were delighted that our staff could spend the day helping them improve their on-site facilities’.
From painting to fencing, and erecting battling nets, the 30 strong team provided much needed support in developing the site, which in turn helps YMCA projects such as their extended after-school programme and getting things in order ready for other big development projects such as a ‘learn to swim’ pool. Margot MacInnis, Co-Head of the insolvency and restructuring practice commented ‘it was a great opportunity for Grant Thornton to give time and energy back to the local community and support the YMCA’.
Grant Thornton, through its participation in this project, supports the commitment, caring and respect for our community and the good work of the YMCA and its staff.
Grant Thornton participates in a number of charitable partnerships and initiatives including UCCI, the Humane Society and a strategic partnership with Cayman Islands Aquatic Sports Association.
