Liverpool Branch 2017 Dinner
Posted on Thursday, April 27, 2017
A total of 275 members and guests attended the Dinner and many
said how good it was to return to the Crowne Plaza for this
After an excellent meal we were all entertained by Barry Stokes
who held his amusing game of Heads and Tails which raised the grand
sum of £2600 to be shared between 2 local children's charities.
We then had speeches from Mrs Louise Ellman MP (Liverpool
Riverside MP and Chair of the Commons Transport Select Committee)
and our Branch Chair Mrs Alyson Loughlin FICS.
This year the Branch decided to try something new and introduced
an award to the "Local Contributor to Education" and invited
organisations in the area to put their names forward for
consideration. The award was won by the Maritime Business and
Logistics department of Liverpool John Moores University.
To complete the evening we kept laughing by the tales and jokes
of the excellent Pete Emmett.
Overall it was felt that it was another excellent evening and
enjoyed by all.
