Cura Accountancy were the winners of Bury Football Club’s innovative ‘Stand for a Grand’ competition, that took place on Thursday 21st June.
Ecstatic business partners, Debbie Martin and Lisa Critchley, told our media team “We are totally thrilled to win such a lucrative sponsorship package with our local football team. After working in Manchester for years our strategy this year is to work with business closer to our homes in Bury so it couldn’t have come at a better time. The Cura Accountancy Stand will be visible to all home supporters, many of which will be business owners so a great way to promote our business locally”.
Debbie and Lisa - both from Bury - studied together, becoming qualified CIMA accountants in 2007. They set up Cura Accounting in 2010 with offices in Manchester and this year in Holcombe Brook, Bury.
Cura Accounting are a modern-day accountancy firm offering part-time book-keepers, management accountants and financial controller support to SMEs in the North West. Now a team of 12, Cura are concentrating on growing their Bury portfolio, hence the reason for entering the draw.
Debbie said “So often we see businesses employing one person to fulfil the role of both book-keeper and accountant, when in reality they require different skill sets. We found a gap in the market offering outsourced accounts functions which works wonderfully as we provide the expertise that growing SMEs need, often working out more cost effective than employing. We usually work at our clients’ premises as part of their team, which not many traditional accountancy firms offer”.
Cura Accountings’ growth over the past 7 years has derived from referrals alone, putting their success down to offering a highly flexible, highly-skilled accountancy service which differentiates itself from traditional accountancy firms by having a hands-on approach.
Hanson continued, “I would like to thank each and every business that supported us. We have attracted businesses from the local area that want to work with us and we will work extremely hard to give them a positive experience in being part of a business network that we are strategically building”.
Cura will occupy the West Stand for the 2018/19 season and designs are already in place for their name to proudly be displayed ahead of the new campaign.
