You Give We Give à Paris

Team TAM and fabulous friends are swapping their desk chairs for bike saddles and cycling to Paris on Thursday 7th May to raise £10,000 for the ten terrific You Give We Give partner charities.

To mark the one year anniversary since the launch of our pioneering charitable donation scheme, TAM are hosting a variety of events throughout 2015 in order to raise funds and awareness for our ten partner charities.

Each and every charity that TAM supports is unwavering in their passion to help others and determination to see positive change in the world. We are often overcome with the stories that they share and successes they achieve. TAM wants to share a story of our own and raise awareness for the relentless efforts of the teams behind such inspiring causes. 

Our associate director, Robert Dunbar, kicks off proceedings in the Paris marathon on Sunday April 12th but the main event to mark the launch of the campaign is a three day bike ride from London to Paris beginning on Thursday 7th May at 9am from TAM’s head office at City Tower.

TAM are overwhelmed with the generous support and donations from clients, colleagues, family and friends alike. Some associates who are also keen cyclists have gone one better than a donation and are actually joining the 300 mile adventure! 

Charles Davies, Sales Manager at Investec Asset Management is one such brave comrade. He said, "I’m delighted to have been invited to take part in this year’s TAM Ethical London to Paris bike ride. We are raising money for some truly wonderful charities and the money raised will make a real difference to so many. I am running the Manchester & London Marathons a couple of weeks before the ride; I hope I have enough left in ‘the tank’ to make it over the finishing line in Paris!" 

Chris Wright, Senior Investment Manager at Premier Asset Management is another team TAM recruit. He said "I am delighted to be joining with TAM in this great adventure, with such worthwhile purpose, cycling to Paris. It will be hard work but as the French say 'Après l'effort, le réconfort!'" 

Not only have we recruited cyclists for the ride, we have also sourced mementos for the journey. Emma Stenzel, UK Sales Manager at Pictet Asset Management is one of the proud sponsors of the ride, but also generous provider of two crates of Pictet water bottles to keep our 10 strong cycle team hydrated along the way! 

The support vehicle, bicycle trailer and repair kits (for any hiccups!) have been very kindly provided by The Archway Project and as a huge thank you, we invited three of their team to the event. Never ones to turn down a challenge, the trio jumped at the chance to join the ride and we couldn't be happier to have them on board. 

To thank our associates for their generosity and support, our brand new TAM Ethical cycling kits proudly feature the logos of Alquity, Investec Asset Management, Pictet Asset Management, Premier Asset Management and SVM Asset Management.

TAM are delighted to be hosting what is hoped to be the beginning of an array of prosperous fundraising events for our charity partners. We are so excited to be embarking on a London to Paris adventure and bringing together our colleagues, clients and associates alike to share in the rewarding experience. We will be documenting the event on our website and social media platforms so everyone can be part of the journey.
