Chartered Accountants Thorne Widgery has been announced as Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce’s Member of the Month.

The Hereford-based firm was a finalist for the Excellence in Innovation award at the Chamber Business Awards earlier this year.
Thorne Widgery has been recognised for its excellent efforts to support schools in making effective use of online accounting, designed in partnership with leading software provider Xero. Due to the success of its work with schools and academies, the firm is now working with other national accountancy practises to enable them to deliver Xero for Education services to their own clients.
Stephen Smallwood, Managing Partner at Thorne Widgery, said: "We are truly honoured to be named as the Chamber of Commerce's Member of the Month for July 2017.
“The Chamber does fantastic work within the regional economy and is very supportive of firms such as ourselves, offering a place for us to meet with other local businesses to strengthen Herefordshire and Worcestershire's offering to the rest of the UK."
He added that by taking an innovative approach to a profession steeped in tradition, the firm continued to welcome new clients and support local businesses, schools, organisations and individuals.
In addition to its success in 2017, Thorne Widgery was named Apprentice Employer of the Year last year by Herefordshire Worcestershire Group Training Association (HWGTA). The firm was awarded for its ongoing commitment to support apprentices entering the tax and accountancy profession.
