Newsletter Spring ’23 – Sowerby Update

New partner at Sowerby


It’s with great delight that we announce the promotion of Phil Silvester to the role of partner of the firm.


Phil has been with us for almost two decades and his dedication to his clients and contribution to the firm’s continuing success have been the driving force behind this well deserved new position within the partnership.


As well as his general practice duties Phil is a specialist in management accounting and will continue to offer our clients his extensive expertise in this area.



Company Social


Our latest company social saw us competing on the track!  Several members of the team went go-karting and had a great time. It seems we have a very competitive team here at Sowerby!  Congratulations to our champions Patrick and Phil.



The Humber Forest Project


Over the past couple of months we’ve been helping The Conservation Trust with hedge planting as part of the Humber Forest project.  It’s been great to do our bit, even in the snow!


Many thanks to Garry Lewis, Gayle Pitter, Michelle Chapman, James Cracknell, Steve Berry, Ruth Phillips, Annabelle Upton and Shih-Yi Wang for volunteering to help.



Charity Challenge – Total Warrior


In our last newsletter we announced our charity challenge for 2023.  Several members of our team will be taking part in the Total Warrior challenge at Bramham Park in Leeds on 1st July.


We’ve now selected a very deserving charity to raise funds for, which is the East Yorkshire Food Bank. With locations across the East Riding, and their main warehouse being located less than a mile from our Beverley office it was the ideal choice.  East Yorkshire Food Bank is supported by The Trussell Trust who work to combat poverty and hunger across the UK. Over 27,600 people live below the poverty line in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and not only does the foodbank provide emergency food it also gives people in crisis hope, practical help, and a brighter future.


Some of our team went to help at the warehouse recently, giving us a really good insight into the amazing work they do and how our funds will help.
