LARKING GOWEN CARRIES OFF SPORTS CHALLENGE TROPHY FOR SECOND YEAR IN A ROW

Published 17 November 2016

Accountants Larking Gowen have once again proven themselves to be the most sporting professional firm in Norwich – after winning the Arnolds Keys Sports Challenge trophy for the second year in a row, following a summer of sport.

The Challenge saw teams from ten city professional firms battle it out over a number of sporting events across six months, including canoeing, karting, badminton and ten-pin bowling.

The annual Sports Challenge, now in its seventh year, raised £3,565 for Norwich Mind, Arnolds Keys’ nominated charity for 2016.

Law firm Leathes Prior took the runners-up prize, with Alan Boswell taking the bronze medal position.  Solicitors, property professionals, accountants and financial firms took part in the Challenge.

“The Arnolds Keys Sports Challenge has established itself as a popular way for professionals to network in an informal setting, keep fit, and raise money for a good cause,” said Arnolds Keys Sports Challenge committee chair Paul Sullivan.

“When we first ran the Challenge in 2010, it was going to be a one-off, but those taking part enjoyed it so much that it has firmly established itself as an annual event.  We are now starting to plan the 2017 Challenge, and would love to hear from any professional firms who would like to put up a team.”

The final positions were:

  1. Larking Gowen
  2. Leathes Prior
  3. Alan Boswell
  4. Arnolds Keys
  5. RG Carter
  6. Birketts
  7. Lovewell Blake
  8. Howes Percival
  9. Mills & Reeve
  10. Hansells
