Saffery Champness hosted their 4th annual Go Karting Challenge event, at which 11 teams competed for a coveted cup, awarded by Saffery Champness. Each team contributed £100 to Lewis-Manning Hospice Care who were presented with a cheque, rounded up to £1,200.
8 law firms took part, including Trethowans, Frettens, Ellis Jones, Frettens, Laceys, Lester Aldridge, Preston Redman and Steele Raymond. Saffery Champness entered 2 teams and the lawyers and accountants were joined by IT support business, Quostar and Finance business, Iceberg.
The temperature was hot and the competition even hotter! Competition was tight and eventual winners were Laceys who had a particularly impressive performance and pipped Frettens to the post. Quostar followed in 3rd place.
