NCASS student dinner raises over £1,000 for local cancer charity 10 April 2015

The 2015 NCASS Annual Dinner was held on 20March at Newcastle’s Civic Centre and raised a fantastically precise £1,020.16 for the Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, a locally based charity with a national reach.

A strong contingent of 173 diners from across the Northern Region enjoyed good food, company and dancing.  The legendary Heads and Tails game allowed for some great photo opportunities as, of course, did the Photo Booth from which the results are currently available on-line.

The society’s nominated charity for the dinner was The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation, a charity set up seven years ago which benefits cancer patients from across the North East and Cumbria and plays a significant role in the international fight against the disease.  The charity recently announced a new fundraising total of £8 million, a target to which our donation will help the charity get nearer.

Chris Soan, President of NCASS commented “the evening was a great success and, on behalf of the NCASS Committee, I would like to thank local firms and organisations for their support and raffle prize donations which helped to ensure smiles on faces and a welcome boost to help the nominated charity’s vital work.  I would also like to thank those who attended as well as the committed team behind the scenes to make this another memorable event”.

Photographs from the evening will soon be available in the Gallery section and we will update the website once we have handed over the cheque to the Foundation.


NCASS (Northern Chartered Accountant Students’ Society) is the official body that represents ACA students under ICAEW training contracts in the Northern Society area in the North East of England and Cumbria. We have been supporting student chartered accountants across northern England since 1896.

The society is run by ACA student volunteers for ACA students and, space permitting, new committee members are always welcome.
