North East of England Branch Newcastle Shipping Dinner
Posted on Friday, May 17, 2019
The North East of England held the first of two formal dinners
recently at the Civic Centre in Newcastle. 200 guests enjoyed
a fantastic evening of music, great food and entertainment at this
iconic venue. Eddie the Eagle gave a fascinating after dinner
speech about the highs and lows of his amazing career and had
people queuing up for selfies, including branch chair Nikki Sayer
The ever popular evening raised over £1,500 for the Branch's
Education Fund and the Sea Cadets. We are also very grateful
for the support of sponsors from the Port of Tyne, Port of Blyth,
UK Marine Survey, and North of England P&I.
Nikki thanked everyone who helped arrange this brilliant evening
and those who contributed to the raffle.
Lastly a big shout out to Alexandra Hagerty (pictured above) who
joined the branch for the dinner. Alexandra came all the way from
the US to Newcastle via London, where she was sitting her Institute
exams. This is a great example of how inclusive and committed
our Institute really is.
