Congratulations to scientists Dr. Penelope Cooke and Dr. Daria Hinz and engineers Matthew Fenton and Chris Gascoigne who have been promoted to Associates.
Brookes Bell were proud to take part in The Big Row organised by Thomas Miller. A scratch crew assembled from all UK offices performed admirably but our main aim, along with the other 77 crews, was to raise £5,000 per crew towards Thomas Millers' drive to launch The Chauncy Maples on Lake Malawi. We are delighted to have played our part.
Brookes Bell were pleased to be one of the sponsors of London International Shipping Week. Our people attended many of the events, culminating in the conference and Gala Dinner. The purpose of the week was to raise the profile of the whole of the UK's maritime services sector, with a clear focus on shipping activity and business services in particular. We are pleased to have contributed to achieving that objective.
