Launching the Young Professional 2015 charity campaign

Thirsty Thursday was back in Coventry this month at The Open Arms in Cheylesmore where we launched this year’s charity campaign with a raffle for two tickets to see Coventry Blaze. Daniel Vaughan of Handelsbanken won the tickets. Well done Daniel, we hope you enjoy the game.

We raised around £50 which will be donated to Myton Hospice. Thanks to everyone who attended for your generosity. Hopefully you’ll win a prize later in the year. Paige has managed to source some great raffle prizes for future events, and she and Dan are looking into a charity event we can get going with soon. Look out for more info!

Adam Carvell of SFB won the champagne draw, which was sponsored by Dafferns so well done to him also. If anyone wants to sponsor a future champagne draw just let one of the committee know.

We were really pleased to find out that Adam Hiscox is returning to Warwickshire, after working for a couple of years in Birmingham. He’ll be joining Wright Hassall next month and we look forward to seeing him back at more of our events. However, we were sad to find out that Emma Von Pahlen (McCartney) of Wright Hassall is on the move to Bristol so will no longer be able to be a part of Coventry & Warwickshire First. Thanks for your help over the past year Emma and we wish you the best of luck for the future.

In other news our former Treasurer, Richard Ganley of Spencer Gardner Dickins, finally fitted his fireplace (it had been a LONG time coming).

Don’t forget to save the date for our next Thirsty Thursday, which will be held in Leamington on Thursday 5 March. 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,
