As a firm of accountants who take our role within The Institute of Chartered Accountants (ICAS) very seriously (as well as a group who never pass up an opportunity for a night out) the annual ICAS dinner is something we at Drummond Laurie look forward to every year.
Ten of the senior members of staff put on their glad rags out and arrived at the Radisson Blu in Glasgow for a night filled with dinner, a few drinks and speeches from ICAS President Jim Pettigrew, Chief Executive Anton Colella and celebrity comedian, Patrick Kielty.
The night was a great opportunity to catch up and network with fellow CA’s, but there was also an important message conveyed throughout the evening in relation to the ICAS Foundation, a foundation which aims to support academically talented young people from disadvantaged communities into university, through the provision of mentoring and financial assistance. One of the attendees from Drummond Laurie, David Anderson, is an active participant within the ICAS Foundation in his role as mentor to a student currently undergoing University exams.

As the evening drew to a close, it was topped off in grand style, with Julie McVicar winning the star prize in the raffle, a pair of diamond earrings worth £1,400 from event sponsor Rox.
