Local businesses ‘rally’ together for RDA


15 February 2019

Top 100 law firm Birketts has presented a cheque for over £1,000 to Riding For The Disabled (Woodbridge & District Group) following a business charity tennis tournament.

12 local teams competed in the tournament, which was held at the Ipswich Sports Club, to raise much-needed funds for the RDA. At the end of a closely-contested day, it was Francis Dickinson and Matthew Chater of FD1 who emerged victorious, with second place going to the previous champions, Sean Milbank and Matt Sparrow of Milbank Concrete.

Mark Henry, a Partner in Birketts’ Corporate and Banking Team, commented: “This was our second charity tennis tournament. It was a great day and fantastic to bring the local business community together to support such a worthy cause.”

John Anderson (Director Trustee, RDA), added: “The money raised from the previous tournament helped fund our move from Hollesley to Clopton. At our fabulous new site at The Bays in Clopton we are extremely lucky to have wonderful facilities but rely heavily on charitable donations and volunteers. Thank you to Mark and the team at Birketts for bringing local businesses together to help raise these much-needed funds.”
