PwC gets the 2008 World Swim underway

PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP’s UK heads of tax, assurance and advisory services swapped their suits for swimmers as they raced against three of the firm’s PAs across the chilly Serpentine lake in Hyde Park today, with enough time to nip back to the office for a day’s work.

In the 8.30am race, Management Board Partners Richard Collier Keywood, Richard Sexton and Ian Powell, faced Caroline Moore, Susan Abraham and Vicki Willis in the relay at the lake, where temperatures averaged 9 degrees. The PA’s won, but only by a fingertip. The event was part of a firm wide day of fund raising activities in the UK marking the start ofthe 2008 World Swim Against Malaria campaign. 

PwC is one of our major corporate supporters and in addition to providing us with professional services the firm’s fundraising activities since 2005 have so far funded the provision of 49,000 bednets protecting close to 100,000 people, mainly children under 5.
