At the heart of northern business since 1882

Paralympic legend toasts success of Teesside Society Annual Dinner 29 November 2013

Multi Paralympic gold medallist Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE toasted the success of the Teesside Society of Chartered Accountants and fellow business professionals at its 64th Annual Dinner.

214 guests, including guest speaker Baroness Grey-Thompson, celebrated the society’s achievements at what has become the highlight occasion for South Durham and North Yorkshire business professionals.

Guests at the event, held at The Thistle Hotel in Middlesbrough on 22 November 2013, raised more than £5,500 for the former athlete’s charity, the British Wheelchair Racing Association, as part of the evening’s festivities. Baroness Grey-Thompson was also accompanied at the dinner by wheelchair track athlete & paralympian Jade Jones.

Tindle’s Chartered Accountants partner and Teesside Society of Chartered Accountants’ chair, Angela Foster, said: ‘The 64th annual dinner was an incredible success and a great celebration of the Chartered Accountancy profession in the region. Thanks to our annual dinner sponsors – Aldermore Bank, Premium Credit, FairFX and Rowlands Restructuring and Insolvency – all 214 guests enjoyed a fantastic evening. We were honoured to be joined by one of Britain’s most successful and decorated athlete’s Baroness Grey-Thompson, and have the opportunity to support such a great cause. Thanks to our generous guests and match-funding by Barclays Business we managed to raise a staggering £5,500, which will support the association and enable it to continue to flourish.’

Speaking about the annual dinner Baroness Grey-Thompson said: ‘I believe it is incredibly important to stop and take a moment to celebrate our own achievements, no matter what industry we work in or arena we compete in. I was honoured to support the Teesside Society of Chartered Accountants celebrate its achievements and all the professionals working within the profession.  I would also like to thank everyone for their kind donations on the evening; their generosity will ensure the British Wheelchair Racing Association supports the next generation of athletes coming through the ranks and increase participation in sport.’
