Charity, renovation and exam success!

This month’s Thirsty Thursday was held at Altoria in Leamington.

We’re pleased to announce that Michelle Vincent of HCB won the champagne draw, which this month was sponsored by Cranfield Business Recovery and Insolvency. We also held another raffle for Myton Hospice. This month’s fabulous prize was tickets to see our very own Coventry City FC in action. Katherine Burge of Lodders was lucky enough to win the tickets and we hope she enjoys the game. Massive thanks should go to committee member Paige Howitt for managing to source all the raffle prizes.

We had a new attendee this month, Henry from Aldermore. Henry – it was great to meet you and we hope to see you again at the next event. We also had some great news from one of our regular attendees, Tom from Cranfield. He’s recently passed his first three ACCA exams and we wish him every success with the next ones. Keep us updated!

Following on from last month’s post about Richard Ganley and his fireplace we had Jade Spencer, also from SGD, in attendance this month. It looks like renovations are all the rage in that neck of the woods as Jade is completing a two storey extension on her house – and most of it DIY!

Lastly we found out that Adam from Cranfield is going to Belgium in August to take part in a 100km 24 hour hike. This will be a great personal achievement for Adam (although slightly crazy!) so we look forward to hearing how he does.

Next month we’re hoping to hold a joint event with the main Coventry & Warwickshire First group where we can meet the nominees for the FirstPro Awards. Look out for an email from us with more details or, if you’re not yet on our mailing list, drop me a line and I’ll add you.

See you soon,
