From the 25th of June until the 9th of July Baker Tilly will host the second ‘Tour de Baker Tilly’ around its offices in the UK. The event will see more than 400 of the firm’s staff and clients travel the 700 mile route between 18 of its offices, with the aim of collecting money for the Anthony Nolan and the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.
Last year Baker Tilly organised a grand bike tour, the ‘Tour de Baker Tilly’. The tour took 300 Tilly insiders on a 660 mile trek, passing 23 offices before finishing back at the head office on the 4th of July. The money raised, around £20,000, was donated to the Anthony Nolan and the Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.
With the success of last year’s Tour de Baker Tilly, the business advisory firm is striving for a second run. This year the route has been extended to 700 miles, with more than 400 staff and clients taking part in the effort. The Tour is expected to pass by 18 of the firm’s offices and take 11 days to complete. The money raised this year, expected to be around £25,000, will go towards the firm’s long supported national charities, Anthony Nolan and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
The two week even will start on the 25th of June, and run until the 9th of July. As part of the event, Baker Tilly will collegiate the blog and photography entries of participants and disseminate them to a wide audience.
CSR in consulting
Earlier this week Consultancy.uk highlighted two other CSR activities from consulting firms. Last Sunday consultants from Q5, an organisation change consultancy from London, raised more than £25,000 for MQ through competing in the Windsor Triathlon, while Protiviti unveiled that it had in recent months provided 1 million meals to people in need globally.
