DURING THE DIAMOND jubilee river pageant, KPMG played its part by sponsoring the clipper fleet. However, one boat, the Typhoon, was close to the company’s heart. It was commissioned to host children, young people and their carers from Barnardo’s projects throughout London and the southeast. About 30 KPMG employees were nominated by colleagues to join the festivities for their dedication to raising funds for Barnardo’s; so far the firm and its staff have raised more than £1.3m for the charity over the past two years.
Last May, more than 750 members of staff, along with suppliers and clients, got together for the Big Blue Kick, which set a world record for the largest tae kwondo display. The event raised £50,000 for Barnardo’s.
