'For the past 3 years we have has our accounts independently examined, and recently audited, by Whitings. We have found them to be thoroughly professional in all the financial matters associated with our charity. Their understanding of both company and charity regulations is beyond any form of reproach. The report to out Board of Directors is always very clear and the understanding of getting reports to the Charity Commissioners and Companies House is always first class. We would not dream of looking elsewhere for our accounts to be audited. They are part of a winning team, for which our Board of Directors are very grateful.'
