On Friday 21 March the iconic HMS Warrior, now permanently berthed in Portsmouth’s Historic Dockyard, hosted the Society of Southern Chartered Accountants (SOSCA) Annual Dinner, for which KIDS was the charity beneficiary.
It was ‘all hands on deck’ as approaching 250 chartered accountants and their guests attended the dinner which was served in the galley of the old ship; the dinning tables mixed in amongst the ship's cannons. The evening included several presentations, often with strong nautical connotations, including SOSCA president, Rob Zeffertt and an after dinner speach by Helen Lederer, the prolific actress, writer and radio presenter, best known for her role as the dippy Catriona in Absolutely Fabulous.
The charity raffle raised an impressive £2,676 for our services in the South East. We would like to thank all those that attended the event, the hospitality of HMS Warrior and Rob Zeffertt who nominated KIDS as the evening's charity beneficiary.
