Walking Tour Donations Our interactive tours encourage active lifestyles and an interest in Birmingham. We have a real commitment to showing the city in an informative and friendly style. If you have been on tour with us we hope that came across loud and clear! We are focussed on running highly professional and innovative tours. However, we are not focussed on makeing a profit. Like many cities we have homeless people on our city streets, with others living in poor conditions and in need of support. One aim of our tours is to create interest in these issues and awareness that there are organisations working on these matters. We make donations based on a minimum of 10% of our turnover to the charity Sifa Fireside, who work among the homeless in our city. Several people who have come on tour with us have been inspired to volunteer at Sifa Fireside. Since our tours commenced in July 2016 we have made the following donations to Sifa Fireside: July 2016 £250 October 2016 £225 February 2017 £460 August 2017 £500 September 2017 £500 October 2017 £500 January 2018 £200 June 2018 £650 September 2018 £700 [£500 PopUp restaurant run by Barbara Berg] January 2019 £700 February 2019 £800 [£175 PopUp restaurant ] March/April 2019 £800 May/June 2019 £1,370 [£190 Dorridge U3A; £330 PopUp restaurant] July/August £ 600 September/October £1,260 [£340 PopUp reataurtant; Rowington WI £150] November/December £570 [£120 book sales at St Alphege Rotary 6/1] January 2020 £1,380 [Walking tours - £845; PopUp restaurant - £535.] Feb-March 2020 £350 April-June 2020 Closed for lock-down July-September 2020 £1,050 October 20- April 21 Closed for lock downs May - Sep 2021 £2,300 Walking tours including donations for ACME whistles at tour end.
