Accountancy firm Baker Tilly has raised over £21,000 for charity in a team bike ride across the UK.
The Tour de Baker Tilly, which was held to raise money for the firm’s supported national charities, Anthony Nolan and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award involved over 350 of the firm’s Partners and staff, together with guests and business contacts.
The two week event covered over 700 miles and stopped at 18 Baker Tilly offices on the way, starting at the firm’s Glasgow office, running South and culminating in a sportive day at Foxhills golf club in Surrey.
Martin Rodgers, Chairman of Baker Tilly said:
‘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.’
The charities were presented with a cheque at a special event at Baker Tilly’s offices in London.
