ACC Members in the United Kingdom Attend Annual Festive Party

A CC Europe combined with UK law firm BrookStreet des Roches (BSDR) held its annual festive party in London on December 7. Members and GCs wishing to learn more about ACC’s activities gathered in the magnificent surroundings of the Oriental Club in central London. After a drinks reception, everyone joined in a game of “What’s my Wine,” where participants were asked to identify four different wines from descriptions delivered by three “experts,” only one of which was not being economical with the truth.

In addition to the overall success of the evening, the event raised £475 for BSDR’s chosen charity, MIND. Joanne Theodoulou, the charity’s GC, gave a brave and personal speech about how mental illness can affect so many people in the workplace and how MIND is working to alleviate the damage it causes.

The winner of the wine tasting game was Jeffrey Watkins (GSK) who came through a three-round tie break to claim first prize, a bottle of Gusborne Estate English Sparkling Wine.
