Our Commercial Director, Paul Challoner, spoke to Liverpool Law Society about entering our 30th year in style at the ILC Motor Claims Networking Lunch

06 March 2024

"As I’m sure most of the industry does, the Carpenters Group team were very much looking forward to the ILC Motor Claims Networking lunch which takes place every January. This year felt a little different though as Carpenters Group enters its 30th year anniversary!

We were surprised (and delighted of course) to find bottles of champagne on our fantastically decorated tables courtesy of the lovely ILC team. With the corks popped, we raised glasses with our wonderful guests to both welcome the start of our 30th year and to also pay tribute to the memories of Bob Linwood and Dane Loosley. 

With Sue Whyte at the helm, the ILC lunch got off to a fantastic start as Sue shared news about the industry, the plans for the ILC team in 2024 and the stacked calendar of events coming our way this year.

It was great to hear how this years event raised £60,000 for children’s charity Rainbow Trust and Zillah Bingley explained how important this was to the charity and how the children benefitted from the donations. We love supporting the brilliant Rainbow Trust charity, so much so that our Chairman, John Carpenter, and Director, Donna Scully, bought a teddy each to support the charity.

The day always flies-by with countless conversations with our own guests and the industry legends that attend this event. We even celebrated Carpenters 30th anniversary with another round of drinks on the train back to the North West.

We are already looking forward to attending next year..."
