Fundraiser takes inspiration from The Queen’s Baton Relay
Recruitment company, The Best Connection employment group has announced that they are launching a company-wide baton-relay charity fundraising campaign entitled Tour de Best Connection.
The campaign is inspired by The Queen’s Baton Relay and will comprise two baton journeys. The journeys will start in Glasgow and Truro on Friday 17th June and finish on Thursday 28th July at the company’s head office in Bromsgrove. This is the date for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.
The business is challenging its employees to pass the baton across the whole branch network throughout the UK.
The batons will travel around 800 miles each and can be transferred through any physical activity, including walking, running, cycling, or swimming, provided they reach their next destination.
The event will celebrate the company’s workforce and achievements over the last three decades. The money raised by the individual branches throughout the event will be donated to a local charity of their choice.
The company has pledged that at the end of the relay, they will match the amount raised across the network and donate this to a national charity selected by the company’s employees.
Neil Yorke, Director of The Best Connection, said: “Tour de Best Connection was inspired by The Queen’s Baton Relay for the Commonwealth Games which this year will be hosted in Birmingham where our inaugural branch was established 31 years ago.”
