The evening saw the Investment Sense team of Independent Financial Advisers and our guests taste a range of excellent wines carefully selected by Mary Trease (left) of Weavers. Whilst tasting the wine Justin Urquhart Stewart (also left) led guests through the complex world of investing in the way only he can.
Anna Timms, (below, with Phil Bray and Bev Stoves of Investment Sense ) Director of Investment Sense said “It was great to hear to two experts talking about subjects they are clearly passionate about. Mary’s knowledge of wine is amazing and Justin’s thoughts on the various economies of the world were hugely informative and very entertaining.”
The evening was the second in a series of three events organised as part of the Business Challenge. The night raised in excess of £1,200 which will be donated to the NSPCC and used to help Childline answer more calls from vulnerable children.
“It costs Childline £4 each telephone call, it’s great to think that the evening will help 250 calls from vulnerable children to be answered” said Phil Bray, Marketing Manager at Investment Sense.
The final event, ‘Networking with a Dragon’ will take place on Thursday 9th June.
Open networking with 50 local businesses will be followed by a talk from ex Dragons’ Den star Rachel Elnaugh, more details can be found here.
