Northern Society of Chartered Accountants

At the heart of northern business since 1882

Coffee Morning (virtual) for retired members

Join with other retired members for a catch up with coffee or tea (biscuits optional).

Event information

Calling all retired members! Whether you are long retired, newly retired or are simply edging towards retirement, you (and your partner) are welcome to join our President Keith Proudfoot for a virtual coffee morning.

During these unprecedented* times, whilst only a few of us can expand our domestic contacts with a “bubble”, it’s all the more important that we stay connected with as many of our circles of acquaintances as we can.

So whilst we’re all stuck indoors and you’ve done as much painting and gardening as you can – or more than you want – why not grab your favourite cuppa and settle down to join fellow retired members for a coffee morning with no raffle but plenty of catch up chat.

* (an over-used word since March)

Teesside Society Annual Dinner 2019

Join us for our annual sell out dinner on Teesside – book early to avoid disappointment.

Whilst managing his brother-in-law’s hotel near Thirsk, Kevin would entertain customers with impromptu impressions.

As a result, he was invited to speak at the Yorkshire Cricket Club dinner. Engagements followed thick and fast, and Kevin eventually decided to abandon catering and become a professional entertainer.

Aside from Dead Ringers, Kevin’s many television credits include Sports Review of the Year, It’s Just Not Cricket with Rory Bremner, and The Full Motty.

He was also the resident comedian on ITV’s Sports Show, providing instant celebrity comment on the week’s sporting disasters.
