In the fast lane for charity
Fifteen members of the RCS team, divided into three teams (Tumbles Tornadoes, Pace Makers and Slick Vick & The Cockney Rockets) took part, with fourteen teams and companies also getting involved.
The evening was organised by London based Chartered Accountants, Simpson Wreford & Co at Lakeside Karting Raceway, Thurrock, Essex. The three winning teams were PureFD (Kamikaze Racers), Simpson Wreford & Co (The Wacky Racers) and Waters & Stanton PLC (Hockley Hot Rods).
With supporters also getting involved during the fun-packed energy sapping racing, the evening raised over £1,000. This figure was then divided amongst the winning teams charity's, which included: The Smiles & Memories Fund and Little Havens Children's Hospice.
Despite RCS not coming in the top 3, everyone involved had a superb time and a donation was made to favoured charity Demelza House.
RCS Chairman, Terry Carrigan said: "Simpson Wreford & Co organised a fantastic evening and the team all thoroughly enjoyed themselves out on the track.
"It's great to see so many people come together and help raise funds for a whole host of charities."
