2018 has started with a boom for the Cambridge Young Professionals Group. The first event of the year was a curry night held at the Rajbelash (previously known as the Saffron Brasserie) and this hosted a record number of 94 attendees.
We always combine the first event of the year with our AGM in order to ratify the committee. This year saw our previous Co-Chairmen, Rachel Winter and Peter McKeown, stepping down and Charmaine Rolfe of Birketts and Emma Watton of Mills & Reeve each taking on the roles as Co-Chairman. They are accompanied on the committee by Gemma Wombwell of PB Sandcroft Management Services Limited as Treasurer, Danni Belbin of Mills & Reeve as Membership Secretary and Jonathan Grinsell of Outside The Box Thinking, Laura Ing-Beaufils of Birketts, Amelia Sainsbury of Stobbs and Harriet Sim of PEM as Executives.
In addition to ratifying the committee and eating copious amounts of curry, we also held the vote for our Charity of the Year. The nominees were Arthur Rank, EACH and Jimmy’s Cambridge which are all very worthy causes. Through a majority vote, EACH was selected as our Charity of the Year.
Our next event is the Comedy Night which is being held on the 2nd March at The Junction and is already sold out. The following event is our ever popular Cocktail Making which is on the 23rd March at Revolution. Tickets are selling out fast so make sure you purchase a ticket quickly to secure your spot.
CYPG membership has continued to grow over the years and this year has been no exception. Our membership runs with the calendar year and for 2018 it currently stands at over 170 members to date. We always welcome new members so if you are interested in joining please contact our Membership Secretary, Danni Belbin on Danni.Belbin@mills-reeve.com for further information.
