Whitley Stimpson sponsors World Poohsticks Championships 2017

Jun 6, 2017

Whitley Stimpson, who are ranked as one of the top 100 accountancy practices in the UK, was pleased to sponsor the World Poohsticks Championships in Witney on Sunday.

Hosted at Langel Common and organised by the Rotary Club of Oxford Spires, the day was enjoyed by people of all ages in the glorious Oxfordshire sunshine. The championships, which have been running annually since 1984, aims to raise awareness for Purple4Polio, a campaign established by the Rotary to try to eradicate polio worldwide. The day also raised money for the Royal National Lifeboat Institute.

Whitley Stimpson were well represented in the competition, with four teams entered into the team event. The Morgan, Clack, Adkins and Wiseman families all took part and sought to claim office bragging rights but it was the Clacks, however, who came out on top, claiming a silver rosette. Charlie Clack, youngest son of Stacey from our Witney office, also made it through to the second round of the individual competition.

Director Laura Adkins, who competed alongside husband Marcus and daughters Freya and Esme, said: “We were delighted to sponsor the championships, it was so good to play a part in an event that provides so much enjoyment and excitement for the local community. The Rotary Club have once again done a fantastic job in organising the championships and to be involved gives us immense pride.

“I would also like to say a big well done to Stacey and her family as they won the silver rosette in the team event. Next year, the gold will belong to the Adkins family!”
