Last Ever Charity Event at LIF

Last week I went up to London for the last ever charity event at Land Registry at Lincoln’s Inn Fields. As part or Acclerated Transformation (or Operation Downsize), the powers-that-be are closing the office and moving to Croydon.

The quiz night went well with some really good prizes and a healthy turn-out and the proceeds will be going to the CF Trust, which I am really really pleased about.

All in all, a bit of a bitter-sweet evening. Great to see old faces and to know that the money is going to a cause close to my heart. Good to seeing the (new) Board had been pro-active and seem to be doing something to restore morale. The Social Committee excelled themselves and Ian even got a free LR T Shirt.

From a personal level, though, I  feel like I have come full circle….now, as they say, it’s onwards and upwards. Odd to think, though, that last recession I was packing up the metaphorical baggage across Lincolns Inn Fields at the old Axa  Equity and Law building. What goes round, comes around….
