Bookkeepers v Accountants


Last Friday saw AMR take on local firm of accountants, Perrys, in a fun run challenge at Tonbridge Inflatable Run.  

The teams were made up of staff and a couple of family members, and having been rained off only a few weeks previously we were all ready for the challenge.

Each team member had to run the course three times in a relay-style race, with Perrys having to do a couple of extra laps due to being one man less, although this was nothing “The Machine”, aka Bradley from the Tunbridge Wells office, couldn’t handle.

The challenge was under the watchful eye of Perrys’ Katherine as adjudicator, who did a marvellous job of keeping everyone in check and ensuring a proper hand-over touch was taken before starting the next run.  Sadly, though, Katherine did miss some company rivalry with AMR’s Caroline holding Bradley up, only for him to retaliate with grabbing her foot as she scrabbled up one of the hurdles.

Each person who completed the course was surprisingly shocked as to how tough it actually was. For those not-so-fit people it was a concern when the international athlete amongst the group (who has recently been sponsored by Perrys) finished her lap and commented how hard it was.  That didn’t deter us though and it was great to see everyone give it 100%.

Of course you will all be wondering who won overall, and it is with great pleasure to say that AMR were victorious and look forward to challenging Perrys again next year.

We would like to thank the staff at Tonbridge Inflatable Run for hosting the event and Bev and Shams Adventures for taking the video which can be viewed on the You Tube channel here.
