Beneficiary Charities of Central England Branch 2017 Annual Dinner

The Nuclear Institute is the UK membership organisation for Professionals involved in all aspects of the Nuclear Industry.

We maintain the standards of professionalism in the nuclear sector through our code of conduct and the Nuclear Delta®

Of most importance to us is the education and training of nuclear professionals, as well as the understanding of the nuclear industry from the wider public. As a learned society, we also act as the independent voice of the industry.

The Central England Branch of the Nuclear Institute organises in October each year a dinner in Oxford for those working in the area covered by the Branch.  We have used this annual event to raise funds for charities that are either based, or operate in our regional area.

The Branch Committee agreed that at our Annual Dinner on 13 October 2016 we would raise funds for the following three charities:

  • The Oxford Children Hospital, which supports facilities and equipment to treat, distract, calm and bring a smile to young patients and to provide facilities for parents of children whilst they are in the hospital.
  • Macmillan Nurses, which provides support to anyone suffering from cancer Macmillan’s ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same.
  • The Sue Ryder Home in Nettlebed, which provides incredible palliative care for people with life-limiting conditions, helping people live as well as possible with the effects of their condition by offering symptom management and support from a team of healthcare professionals.

At our Annul Dinner, we raised a total of £2,025 for these charities through a collection, an auction and a raffle (plus £375 from completed gift aid forms). Each charity has received £675 (plus another £125 through gift aid).
