A focus on sport is not a new idea for Deloitte. Our people are passionate about sport, but we’re not just keen competitors. Over the last 20 years Deloitte has developed a unique focus on the business of sport. We have worked with more clubs, leagues, governing bodies, stadia developers, event organisers, commercial partners, financiers and investors than any other adviser. As one of the world’s leading professional services firms, we’re excited by new challenges, whether that’s in solving our clients’ most complex problems, or riding from John O’Groats to Land’s End.
The Ride has always been part of Deloitte’s wider Disability Sport programme, the largest programme of its kind in the UK and since 2007 we’ve been leading the way in corporate support for disability sport at every level – from grassroots to gold medals. Through Deloitte Ride Across Britain we have raised over £1.3m for the British Paralympic Association to provide support for ParalympicsGB at the Winter and Summer Paralympic Games. Deloitte are aiming to raise the next £1m to help ParalympicsGB maintain their momentum on the journey to Rio 2016 and beyond, inspiring thousands more to take up disability sport – with Deloitte Parasport there to help point the way.
“Deloitte Ride Across Britain is true challenge and a fantastic experience. To date over 200 of our people and clients have taken part and we are proud to say we have raised a huge amount for the British Paralympic Association which goes towards supporting Britain’s best talent and promoting disability sport across the UK.”
