SAC Consulting Tour d'Office raises over £7,000
17 November 2020
Four staff teams from SAC Consulting have raised more than £7,000 for RSABI through their inaugural Tour d'Office Challenge.
Staff walked, cycled or ran nearly 10,000 miles in October, taking part in a virtual race around the organisation's network of 24 consulting offices.
The event was organised by David Ross, SAC Consulting Regional Development Manager, when this year’s RSABI Great Glen Challenge was cancelled due to Covid-19.
The teams representing the North East, North West, South East and South West – completed the 1954-mile circuit around the offices and then did a one-team lap of honour, covering a total distance of nearly 10,000 miles.
The North East Team took the inaugural Tour d’Office title in 20 days and four hours, followed by North West (21 days, 17 hours); South West (21 days, 19 hours) and South East (21 days, 20 hours).
David said: “We’d normally take part in the Great Glen event and decided we needed to do something different to support RSABI’s important work. The Tour D’Office has brought people together – in a virtual way – and it was great to see such good-spirited competition, with plenty of laughs along the way.”
Nina Clancy, Chief Executive of RSABI, said: “We’re so grateful for what the team at SAC Consulting have done, it’s incredible. To have covered so many miles in a month is a real achievement. Now more than ever RSABI needs to be able to provide emotional, practical and financial support to people in Scottish agriculture. We really appreciate this fundraising effort and give a huge thank you to everyone involved.”
