Sports Testimonials

Plummer Parsons have worked with many local sports clubs and sporting bodies - below are some quotes:

I am extremely grateful for all the help our club has received from Plummer Parsons on maximising our Gift Aid via Plummer Parsons' specific 'Maximising Gift Aid' CASC pack.  We have just received back our first Gift Aid repayment and the support we received during this process was invaluable.

Alan Brown, Club Chairman Hindsford Juniors FC

"Thank you for the CASC information pack, we can now start generating extra income for the club.

As a result of the Plummer Parsons CASC presentation evening at Brighton City Council and our subsequent meeting with you and our committee, we are now a CASC registered club.

Prior to your initial presentation we had spent more than a year in trying to obtain CASC but could not satisfy HMRC conditions until you came to our rescue. We would not hesitate to recommend Plummer Parsons to other sports clubs seeking CASC status our only regret is that we should have approached you earlier.

We also greatly appreciate your ongoing support for the next year and the very low cost you apply to the whole process.

Very many thanks for all you help"

Alan Wildig, Chairman, St Matthias Cricket Club, BRIGHTON

'We as a club were very grateful to Plummer Parsons for your help through our CASC registration process and the subsequent ongoing help after we had purchased Plummer Parsons Maximising Gift Aid pack. We recommend that other clubs contact them for their valuable help and assistance'
Richard Veness, Treasurer Chearsley Cricket Club

"Having decided to apply for Registration as a Community Amateur Sports Club (CASC), Ashby Decoy Golf Club Management Committee talked to other clubs who had acquired this status to establish their views and experience to date.

The Committee decided it was desirable to appoint professional advisors to maximise the chance of a positive application.

We chose Plummer Parsons who seemed to be the leader in this area of expertise. Initially, we thought that their location in the South of England would be a major constraint but this was not a problem.

A combination of excellent and relevant literature plus regular telephone and email contacts concluded with a face to face meeting to brief our committee in the clubhouse ahead of an EGM which approved our submission.

Without doubt, their support over two years was the key factor in our obtaining a successful application and we would recommend Plummer- Parsons to any other Sports Clubs who are considering a similar application."

David Whittle, Ashby Decoy Golf Club, SCUNTHORPE

"Thank you to Neville for your presentation on CASC and sports club structures. I certainly found the presentation very useful & informative, as did the clubs & organisations who attended. Your wealth of knowledge on the subject matter was second to none & some great examples were provided to hopefully enable clubs to make informed decisions."
Nicky Salmon Sports Development Officer Brighton & Hove City Council

"I am very grateful to all the help and support Plummer Parsons gave us during the registration process. PP Sports 'Maximising Gift Aid' pack has enabled us to structure Gift Aid within our club and their 12 month ongoing support as part of the Gift Aid package will be invaluable."
Natalia Gyuricska, Treasurer, Salle Kiss Fencing, BURY

"As a thriving rugby club with a large junior section, we've been registered as a CASC for several years. I took over as Registration and Membership Secretary last season and decided it was about time we began to utilise Gift Aid. Not really knowing where to start, I found Plummer Parsons who specialise in maximising Gift Aid. We purchased the Gift Aid pack and have found it to be very comprehensive giving you all the information you need to start on the road to making a claim. I have had several queries regarding our first claim and the ongoing service provided has been fantastic. I would thoroughly recommend Plummer Parson's Maximising Gift Aid Pack to any club who would like to start claiming Gift Aid."
Helen Brown, Registration and membership secretary, Longlevens RFC, GLOUCESTERSHIRE

"On behalf of the Bury Council Sport and Physical Activity Service I would like to say thank you for attending our first club and coach symposium last month. We have been gathering feedback from the event and the results have been very positive. The clubs, coaches and volunteers were very impressed with your presentation and have mentioned they will be discussing it in more depth at their committee meetings."
Zoe Fernandez, Club Development Officer, BURY

"Plummer Parsons has now presented to 3 of our Area Cricket Associations and on each occasion the response from the attendees was very positive. The focus of the presentation was Community Amateur Sports Club status (CASC), and although some clubs already had the status, Plummer Parsons provided a valuable insight into how to reap optimum benefits from having the status. What was particularly useful was you ability to align some of the processes and “maths” to a cricketing context. I am already aware of some clubs who are intending on applying for the status as a result of the information provided. All in all, the Sussex Cricket Board is very grateful for their attendance at evenings that were designed to offer some support to cricket clubs in these challenging financial times. I would encourage other sporting bodies to do the same."
Tim Shutt, Cricket Development Manager, Sussex Cricket Board, HOVE

"We were very grateful for the help, advice and support given us to by Plummer Parsons in the process of obtaining our CASC registration."
Jacqueline Packham, Secretary, Willingdon Golf Club, EASTBOURNE

"Seaford RFC is only a small club and have little in the way of financial reserves and therefore every penny counts. Plummer Parsons has helped us register not only as a CASC but to provide details on how we can also maximise our Gift Aid claims which will make a big difference to our finances. On behalf of Seaford RFC, I thank you for all your help with this."
Nicky Walker, Secretary, Seaford Rugby Club, SEAFORD

"Although we have been registered as a CASC for some time after contacting Plummer Parsons they came and met with our club officials at one of our coaching evenings and explained how the club had not been utilising Gift Aid to our advantage. It is clear that after speaking to them and purchasing one of Plummer Parsons ‘Maximising Gift Aid’ packs the club will be able to make significant Gift Aid repayments each year."
Carol Comber, Sussex Springers Trampoline Club, BURGESS HILL

"We have appointed Plummer Parsons as our accountants because of their CASC specialism. We are keen to work with Neville Beckhurst and the rest of the CASC team in the future as it is clear the club will be able to increase our income through their Gift Aid schemes."
Sasha Hunt, Heathfield & Waldron Rugby Club, HEATHFIELD

"Our Treasurer registered our club as a CASC back in 2005 and since then it has been hugely beneficial to us and enabled the club to invest the extra funding into improving our facilities. The club has had over £2,500 in Gift Aid repayments and by implementing all the Maximising Gift Aid schemes the club will be aiming for £1,000 of Gift Aid repayments each year."
Roger Martin, Chairman, Glynde & Beddingham CC, GLYNDE

"MSC approached Plummer Parsons for professional advice when looking to apply for CASC status. Plummer Parsons' expertise in this area saved MSC significant time and allowed us to reap tax benefits and gift aid payments much sooner than we could have done without their help. Their advice was accurate and professional and attendance at our EGM to help field questions from members was invaluable. I would recommend other club's in the same position to engage with Plummer Parsons."
Andrew Brown, Treasurer, Monton Sports Club, MANCHESTER
