We are delighted to announce that our guest speaker this year will be Baroness Grey-Thompson DBE.

TGT-head-and-shouldersIn Seoul in 1988, Tanni represented Great Britain and won her first Paralympic medal, the 400m bronze. Spinal surgery forced Tanni to take a year away from the track and incredibly, at the 1992 Barcelona Paralympics, she stormed to victory taking four gold medals in the 100, 200, 400 and 800 metres and a silver in the 4x100m relay.

The same year, she won her first of six London Wheelchair Marathons. Tanni won the 800 metres gold in the 1996 Atlanta Paralympics along with three silver medals in the 100, 200 and 400 metres. At the 2000 Sydney Paralympics, 31 year old Tanni returned with a vengeance, striking gold a fabulous four times in the 100, 200, 400 and 800 metres. In Athens 2004, aged 35, she takes first place in the 100 and 400 metres bringing her Paralympic gold medal tally to an astonishing eleven.

Her total Paralympic Medal tally is 11 gold, 4 silvers and 1 bronze.

In 2010 Tanni was appointed to the House of Lords, where she serves as a non party political crossbench peer. Tanni took the title Baroness Grey-Thompson of Eaglescliffe in the County of Durham. Tanni is a working peer and hopes to use her experience and knowledge to great effect in debates in the House. She has most recently contributed in the Welfare Reform and Legal Aid Bill.

Jennings Brewery Tour

The Cumberland Society of Chartered Accountants is delighted to invite you to a brewery tour of Jennings Brewery, Cockermouth on Friday 15 May 2015 at 7.30p.m.

Members of Cumberland Chartered Accountant Students’ Society (CCASS) are also welcome to join us for an insight into one of our well known local businesses.

CSCA-Jennings-TourAbout Jennings Brewery

Jennings Brewery was originally established as a true family concern back in 1828, in the village of Lorton. The company moved to its current location in 1874, in the historic town of Cockermouth, in the shadow of Cockermouth Castle, at the point where the rivers Cocker and Derwent merge.

Jennings regards itself as a traditional brewer, traditional in a number of different ways. Pure Lakeland water is still used for brewing, drawn from the brewery’s own well, and only the finest natural ingredients are added, including English pale ale malt, Golding hops from Kent and Fuggles hops from Herefordshire.

Jennings-Brewery-TourAll five of Jennings Brewery’s permanent beers have won prestigious awards and international acclaim during 2014. The five beers have won a total of eight awards in the last 12 months in the International Beer Challenge, the World’s Best Beer Awards and with CAMRA’s Beer of the Year in Cumbria.

Find out how our real ales are still brewed with care and attention, by taking the friendly, guided tour of the brewery.

You’ll complete the tour in the best way possible, by sampling some of Jennings’ superb Lakeland ales in the atmospheric bar, the Old Cooperage.

You can read more about Jennings Brewery on their website jenningsbrewery.co.uk
