Elsby & Co believe that corporate and social responsibility isn’t just the preserve of the big players. We’ve actively supported local and international charities as well as supporting various community events over the years.

Where possible, we like to give something back to the local community and this is reflected in our policies. Elsby operate a community fund where every year, employees can nominate a charity or cause of their choosing to receive up to £100. This is per employee, so across all 30+ employees it can really make a difference. Typically, these are local causes which are close to the hearts of our employees.

Our first ever nomination was to the Dynamix Dance Company which operates dance classes in Northamptonshire. Other contributions have gone to such things as junior park fun runs and a local netball league to celebrate the fine work they have accomplished in the 50 years since launch.

At the start of 2023, we supported VR Therapies who on Christmas day, had their offices broken into and their equipment stolen. Not only this but their building was damaged in the process with doors and locks broken, resulting in them not being able to run their sessions and provide services to those who desperately need them, including group sessions for deaf children and Day Centre’s for people with learning difficulties. We are proud to have been able to support and donate to their fund and we were told that our donation helped take them over half way in their efforts, which was fantastic to hear!

In addition to our staff fund, we sponsored Joel Dixon-Coen in his quest to become the next Lewis Hamilton. Joel became the first double national cadet champion with Total Karting Zero at the grand old age of 12, racing the all-new electric karts. Joel has now moved up to the Junior category where he hopes to defend his title. Total Karting Zero is the first all-electric karting championship, set up and run by top Formula 1 engineer Rob Smedley. Sponsoring Joel was an easy decision and we were delighted to be able to support young, local talent in an event which promotes electric racing. Surely a sign of things to come!

The environmental & community team at Elsby have introduced a tree planting project and have chosen to support “Ripple Africa”. We sponsore the planting of 20 trees each month, whilst protecting 60 trees in a forest. The project works with farmers and communities in Malawi, providing a long-term solution to deforestation caused by the destruction of indigenous forests. The tree farmers also plant fruit trees to provide food and income for their families, so our sponsorship really is going the extra mile!


In 2023 we have supported various local groups and charities, suggested to us by members of the Elsby team,  including Serve, Northampton Hope Centre, Scouts Putnoe and Stray Cats Rescue. 


Networking Events

In 2023, we launched our first post-Covid Elsby Networking Events, kicking off in April where we held our first Networking Lunch at local Rushden restaurant, Pizzeria Venezia. We had over 15 local businesses attend to enjoy a delicious lunch whilst having the chance to meet other like-minded people in a friendly, informal setting.

In May 2023, we held our first Business Breakfast at Whites Kitchen in Earls Barton, where again we had the opportunity to network with other local businesses, this time whilst enjoying a tasty continental breakfast.

To coincide with National Walking month, we hosted our first Netwalking session, starting off at Water Mill Tearoom in Ringstead. Due to the success of this event, we ran further Netwalking events, at various beauty spots in Northamptonshire, including Sywell Country Park.

This year, in 2024, we continue to host monthly networking events including Business lunches as Pizzeria Venezia in Rushden and our Netwalking events.

I had the pleasure of working with James from Elsby & Co as my accountant, and I cannot recommend him enough. James is an expert in his field, and he provided me with fantastic accounting services that went above and beyond my expectations. James took the time to understand my business and my financial needs, and he provided me with tailored advice and solutions that helped me to improve my bottom line. He is knowledgeable, efficient, and detail-oriented, ensuring that all of my financial records were accurate and up-to-date. In addition to his technical abilities, James is also a pleasure to work with. He is friendly, approachable, and always available to answer any questions I had.
