350 Baker Tilly advisors have participated in the second ‘Tour de Baker Tilly’ and biked around the firm’s offices in the UK to raise a total of £21,000 for the firm’s supported national charities: Anthony Nolan and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.
Tour de Baker Tilly
Tour de Baker Tilly, which was first organised by Baker Tilly in 2014, is a bike ride event during which the firm’s staff travels approximately 700 mile between several of its offices in the UK, with the aim of collecting money for its supported national charities: Anthony Nolan and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.
After a successful first year, when 300 of its employees raised around £20,000 while passing 23 offices, the consulting firm organised a second edition between 25 June and 9 July 2015. This year attracted 350 partners and staff that, together with guests and business contacts, biked across the UK, visiting 18 of the firm’s offices, to raise £21,000 for the selected charities.
Commenting on the results, Martin Rodgers, Chairman of Baker Tilly, says: “I am delighted we’ve been able to raise so much for these two important charities to help them continue the invaluable work they do for so many people. We have a strong and lasting relationship with both Anthony Nolan and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and I am extremely proud of everyone who has taken part in the challenge this year. The money raised is testament to not only their passion and commitment, but of those who have supported and sponsored them.”
