Staff from the firm swapped their suits for colourful costumes to perform the festive favourite, Aladdin at the MAC theatre in Belfast last month.

Over 450 people attended the pantomime and BDO managed to raise £8,000 for the charity.

BDO partner and Aladdin cast member Carol Malcolmson said: “We are absolutely delighted to have raised the grand total of £8,000.

“The team at BDO has consistently enjoyed rising to the challenge of always seeking innovative ways to support local causes.  The production of Aladdin was a cross firm team effort, requiring a huge commitment from the dressmakers to the actors\actresses and the organisers. Accountants are not always known for their fun side, but I feel we certainly rose to the challenge.

“The Aladdin production was not only our biggest challenge to date in terms of commitment, but undoubtedly our biggest success in terms of fundraising for the NI Children’s Hospice.”

Eva Toal, Corporate Fundraiser at NI Children’s Hospice, said: “NI Children’s Hospice is grateful for the valuable support given by BDO over the past year.  The production of Aladdin was fantastic, so professional and entertaining, clearly demonstrating the dedication and commitment of the staff in BDO NI to the local community.

“There are over 1,300 life-limited children and young people and their families living in Northern Ireland who need the specialist care that only Children’s Hospice can provide. The vital funds raised by BDO will help provide the care and support they need.”
