Young Professionals May Thirsty Thursday - New committee member

At this month’s Thirsty Thirsty (TT) event, which was held at The Almanack in Kenilworth, we were delighted to welcome our newest committee member Kelly Schofield. Kelly is a paralegal in the commercial litigation team at Wright Hassall, assisting mostly in contentious probate and Court of Protection matters. Kelly will be a fantastic addition to the committee and we’re all looking forward to working with her. Look out for a ‘Spotlight on’ interview with her soon. Fittingly, Kelly also won this month’s champagne business card draw.

We were also delighted to welcome Pardeep Khela of Wright Hassall to the event. Pardeep recently started in the Commercial Property team. This was his first Young Professionals event in the area and we hope to see him again soon.

This month’s raffle prize, which goes towards our fundraising efforts for Myton Hospice, was a picnic hamper donated by TK Maxx. It contained everything you need for an alfresco lunch and was won by Gus Bhandal of Warwickshire County Council.

The chat this month revolved a lot around cars as former committee member Richard Ganley bought another classic VW and Salmaan Khan of Dafferns bought a new BMW. There was also a lot of buzz around the general election which happened on the same day, and it was great to hear that lots of young professionals had either already voted or planned to vote after the TT.

Other news saw our former Chairman Carl Malcolm replace the broken screen on his iPhone, only to smash it again that same evening.  Gus Bhandal suggested using the joke ‘Carl-Phone Warehouse’ somewhere in this paragraph, however I think that would just be met with groans and sighing. Sorry Gus.

Next month’s Thirsty Thursday event will be held in Warwick on Thursday 4th June. If you’re not on our mailing list email me at and I’ll get you added. All our Thirsty Thursday events are free and open to young professionals of any age across Coventry and Warwickshire.
