Financial services firm PwC is the latest to back the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham.
The firm has signed up as a sponsor of the sporting spectacle and will provide professional advisory services in the run up to the event which starts on July 28.
As part of the deal, PwC, which has three offices in the Midlands employing 3,000 staff, will also work with local charities and non-profit organisations to maximise the social and environmental impact of the event.
It said it had an ongoing commitment alongside the games’ organisers to support and grow opportunities for local communities, particularly for those from disadvantaged groups, the unemployed and disabled individuals.
