Penguins on parade for informal insolvency event
13th May 2015
The priority for any insolvency practitioner is all about helping to keep businesses afloat, and The Deep provided the ultimate “sink or swim” display when they welcomed Redman Nichols Butler and their guests for a corporate evening.
The Deep’s penguins made fleeting appearances and the bigger penguins were Andrew Nichols and Janice Kirkwood, clad from beak to tail in penguin outfits and making the most of their place as the centre of attention to raise more than £1,000 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.
Established nearly 20 years ago, Redman Nichols Butler are based in Driffield and, with additional offices in York and Scunthorpe, provide advice on procedures including bankruptcy, liquidation and administration to other professionals and individual businesses throughout the Yorkshire and Humber region.
The event was a second celebration at The Deep for the firm and Stella Flemmings, Manager of the Driffield office, said feedback suggested it was a great success. Stella said: “We wanted somewhere informal and interesting. That’s why we went to The Deep for the first time last year. This time we were looking for something different again. Someone mentioned the penguins and that was it!
“We did a business card draw with two prize bundles of a penguin soft toy, a family ticket for The Deep and a penguin adoption certificate. Around 150 people attended altogether and the feedback was very positive – I hadn’t seen the penguins before. Now we need to think of something different again for next year!”
Freya Cross, Business and Corporate Manager at The Deep, said: “We’ve become a popular venue for serious business events including meetings and speeches and for people who want something a little less formal. The positive feedback which Redman Nichols Butler received shows that our team – including the penguins – did a good job!”
