After a successful Netball Tournament hosted by RSM earlier in the year to raise money for the GeeWizz charity, the Whiting & Partners staff decided to take part in the next sporting event in the RSM calendar – the annual rounders tournament.

The event was held at the British Sugar Sports and Social Club on Thursday 13th July and saw staff from our Bury St Edmunds and Mildenhall offices taking part, successfully reaching the semi-finals of the competition!

Bethan Hassey, Trainee Accounts Technician at the Bury St Edmunds Office who organised the team commented on the event – ‘The Whiting & Partners rounder’s team were very successful this year making it to the semi-finals. The event was very enjoyable and raised money for the charity GeeWizz, who raise money for young people and their families suffering with disability or debilitating illness.’
