Cumbrian staff from tax and consulting firm RSM have taken part in the Dragon Boat Regatta on Windermere to raise funds for charity.

A team of 16 people from RSM’s Whitehaven, Preston and Chester offices, RSM clients, and others professionals competed against 14 other teams on Sunday.

All fundraising efforts will be split between three charities – Paddlers for Life, Friends of Chernobyl’s Children and Cumbria-Rungwe Community Link – which provide support to people in need, locally and in Tanzania and Belarus.

Richard Arnott, team captain and director at RSM, said: "We’re excited to be taking part in this year’s Dragon Boat Regatta.

"We have a great team of colleagues and clients who have been putting in the training, which has been a lot of fun.

"We are proud to be supporting the important work that Friends of Chernobyl’s Children, Paddlers for Life and Cumbria-Rungwe Community Link deliver; and we are committed to raising as much money as possible for these three great causes."
