EAST Anglia-based business rescue and insolvency practice McTear Williams & Wood has raised £2,400 for charity at its annual bowls tournament.

A dozen teams of professionals from across the region battled for the McTear Williams & Wood Bowls Challenge Trophy at the event, which was held at the Breckland Leisure Centre in Thetford.

This year’s winning team was from Colchester-based chartered accountants Whittle & Co, with Adam McCaw of Leathes Prior solicitors and Rob Trett of Barclays Bank the join individual winners.

Funds raised from the event have gone to the local area of Community First Responders, volunteers trained to attend local emergency calls received by the ambulance service and provide reassurance, comfort and care until a paramedic or ambulance arrives.

A cheque for the sum was presented by partner Chris Williams to representatives from Community First Responders.
