Corporate Social Responsibility
At BDO Northern Ireland we are committed to being a responsible business, both in how we work with our clients but also in terms of how we contribute to the wider community.
At BDO Northern Ireland, support for CSR has been long standing, with a range of initiatives not only raising money for important and worthy activities but also providing an opportunity to reflect and reinforce our business culture and its values.
Fundraising activities that BDO regularly organise include ‘Happy Friday’ events, coffee mornings, Halloween dress up days, volunteering days and once a year members of the firm try and do something a little crazy for our charity.
Some of these ‘crazy’ charity activities have included:
- White Collar Boxing
- Dublin Marathon
- Belfast Marathon
- Tough Mudder
- BDO’s Production of the Aladdin Pantomime
Every two years the BDO CSR committee announces their support of one charity around which the fund raising activities during this time will focus.
Since April 2018 BDO Northern Ireland have focused their charity efforts with local charity The Children's Cancer Unit Charity. The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity exists solely to support the work of the Children’s Cancer and Haematology Unit at the Royal Belfast Hospital for Sick Children and their families. The Children’s Cancer Unit Charity is a registered charity and depends on donations from supporters. All the funds raised are used to care for children in the province who suffer with all forms of childhood cancer and selected benign haematological conditions. Administration costs are kept to the bare minimum.
Since fundraising began for The Children's Cancer Unit Charity in June 2018, we are proud and delighted to announce that the team at BDO NI have raised over £6,500 for the charity. In addition, employees have donated 35 hours volunteering time so far to Children's Cancer Unit Charity.
