Cirencester accountant Libby Walklett, owner of ‘The Ethical Bookkeeper,’ will be taking part in Threshold Housing Link’s Big Swindon SleepOut 2021 outside Supermarine Sports Club on December 3rd. Libby has worked as the Financial Controller for Threshold, Swindon’s longest established homeless relief charity, since June 2021.
Libby has had a varied career in finance but says her work with Threshold is the most fulfilling and rewarding job she’s had “It’s so wonderful to feel I’m making a difference. Supporting the team at Threshold is deeply satisfying; they’re doing the most incredible work, serving the local community, and looking after the needs of people who deserve a second chance.” Whilst the SleepOut will be a fun packed evening, the message behind it is, as always, a serious one. We’re still looking for sponsorship and more people to join us on the big night. You can register now for the SleepOut at https://www.thl.org.uk/…/thresholds-big-swindon…/ taking part as an individual or getting together with friends, family or work colleagues to experience this very special event which raises vital funds.
When not working, Libby loves DIY, decorating and gardening, enjoys walking and looking after her two dogs and is an enthusiastic stage performer. She joined Cirencester Operatic Society, now TinkCo, 12 years ago, and has taken on a number of roles, her favourite being Dolly Levi in ‘Hello Dolly’. “The Barn Theatre is such a wonderful asset for Cirencester. How the team have continued to make such an impact during the pandemic is testament to their determination, resilience and hard work”. Libby has also appeared with the South Cerney Players in several shows, recently starring as Mimi in ‘’Allo, ‘Allo.’
Whilst Libby is trying to focus on being greener; reducing car journeys, shopping locally and using renewable energy, she also applies this principle to running her business in an ethical and sustainable way and is keen to support local business. To find out more, visit theethicalbookkeeper.co.uk
