Our team was made up of people from different areas of our firm, and a mix of ages, and we were all ready for a bit of healthy competition. There were eight teams of local professionals playing in the tournament from accountants to solicitors and chartered surveyors. It was a really great opportunity for us all to catch up with each other in a relaxed and fun environment.
The event took place at Carlisle Rugby Club and after the various matches were over, the teams all headed in to the rugby club for a well-deserved drink and some delicious food.
While we were all enjoying the wonderful hospitality the tournament winners were announced and although we didn’t win, our team performed extremely well and came second in our group and third overall – a significant improvement on last year’s placing in the same tournament!
The evening was a great success, filled with lots of laughter and raised an impressive £1,100 for Eden Valley Hospice. We would like to thank Handelsbanken for organising such a great event and are looking forward to next year’s tournament already – where we hope to improve again and have our eye on first place!
