25 Feb Our MD Hits the big 50
As many of you are aware, our Managing Director, Tom, reached the ripe old age of 50 on the 25th of February 2008, Yes that’s right, the half century. To celebrate we had a bit of a party in the boat club which everyone thoroughly enjoyed. It was great nights crack and Tom would like to thank everyone who attended.
On a more serious note,Liam O Hagan, a close friend of Tom’s showed a DVD of the Budimex childrens hospital in Bucharest which Liam has been actively involved with over the past few years. The reason for the DVD being that Tom had asked for no gifts, instead on the the night he made a collection for the Budimex Hospital. The collection raised more than £2,000 and Tom is very grateful to all who contributed. The money will be delivered personally to the sister in charge of the hospital l by Liam O Hagan, you can therfore take comfort in the fact that all the donations will go directly to source and no administation costs will be incurred. Tom would also like to add, that he will be fund raising for the Hospital at our annual Ardbeg outing.
On the night a few of Tom’s more famous friends could not attend, they did however send him a few words via satellite link up,to listen to what they had to say
Tom also added he hopes to see you all at his next big bash, the 100th!!!

A joke to finish
An elderly gentleman was telling his friend about a new restaurant he and his wife recently visited. "The food and service were great!" he said. His friend asked, "What’s the name of the place?" "Gee, I don’t remember," he said, "What do you call the long stemmed flower people give on special occasions?" "You mean a rose?" asked his friend. "That’s it!" he exclaimed and turning to his wife, asked, "Rose, what’s the name of that restaurant we went to the other day?"
