Steve Large receiving a spot award from Brian Wilson for his efforts in arranging a abseil down the front of the Europa Hotel with a collection for Leukemia Research. This involved 21 staff from the Information Technology department on a windy day.
Adrian Murphy paused on the decent, I would not have paused!!
One of my sons was about 8 at the time and was given a role of collecting with Pat Masterson (HR Director) in front of the Europa on the pavement at the world famous Crown Bar. Mathew was keen to do this but misheard the charity we were collecting for, so began asking passers-by for contributions to Lobelia research (as if we don’t have enough colours of lobelias already).
Belfast folks being the way they are were happy to throw money in the buckets carried by Mathew and Pat.
