The Pipeline Industries Guild (PIG) has held its 61st Pipeline Industries National Dinner at the Grosvenor House Hotel, in London. More than 500 professionals attended the event, sponsored by Fisher German, which celebrates the success of the industry. The event raised £6710 for the charity Crisis, which provides vital support to thousands of homeless people every year.
Businessman Gerald Ratner, former Chief Executive of the major British jewellery company Ratners Group, was guest speaker at the event.
Rachel Cliffe, Deputy Chair of the PIG Midlands branch and Associate Partner at Fisher German, said: “The annual dinner is attended by companies across the entire spectrum of the industry and is a wonderful way to celebrate our field.
“It was excellent to see so much money raised for our chosen charity, Crisis, which is an incredibly worthy cause which supports homeless people in rebuilding their lives. We would also like to thank Gerald Ratner for joining us to speak at the event.
“The Guild aims to promote, foster and develop the art, practice and science of pipeline design, construction, operation and the development of related plan instrumentation and maintenance techniques.
“Holding events like our annual dinner enables those working across the profession to network and exchange ideas to help the continual growth of the sector.
“Fisher German has been supporting the Guild for the past 25 years and we were delighted to sponsor this year’s event.
“A number of Fisher German colleagues have had roles within the Guild over this period, including Chairman of the Eastern and Midlands branches as well as National Chairman and we will look to continue this support going forward.”
