PRTC hosts a great VIP evening at Proms In The Park (Hyde Park)

Once again, we were proud to host a VIP evening at this year’s Proms In The Park.

With over 40,000 revellers singing the wonderful Proms classics in a frenzy of Pomp and Circumstance, it was a sublimel experience.  We were also treated to some great performances from a wide range of musical genres.  The line-up included Gladys Knight, Matt Goss, Joseph Cajella, Josh Groban, and Lisa Stansfield.

We all had a fantastic night and full marks to the BBC for laying on a wonderful VIP experience. Events like this make you ‘Proud To Be British!’, allthough there were a number of ‘Remainers’ proudly displaying EU flags….

Here are some of our photos from the evening:

PRTC is very pleased to sponsor RUSH at Beneath The Wood Sanctuary

We were so pleased to sponsor the most lovely adorable pony – called Rush – who recently joined the Beneath The Wood Sanctuary in Wales. He was brought to the Sanctuary as a sad abandoned pony and we just felt it was right to help with his upkeep and well-being.

We absolutely love the great and kind work done by Sasha at the Sanctuary, which looks after dogs with behavioural problems and other animals needing a safe haven.

You can follow this wonderful Sanctuary on Twitter at @BTWsanctuary and any help you can give them would be most appreciated by Sasha.

Of course, Rush could not resist posing for us -what a poser – well done lad!

PRTC – Proud sponsors of the West Ham United Player’s Player of the Season Award

We were both thrilled and honoured to sponsor the club’s Player’s Player of the Season award 2018. This is a very special accolade since it is chosen by the team. This year the award was given to Marko Arnautovic (who took two other awards, thus bringing him a well-deserved ‘hat-trick’ on the night!)

The evening was held-together expertly by compere’s Gabby Logan and ex-Hammer centre-half Alvin Martin.

It was wonderful to see Hammer legend Ken Brown receive this years Lifetime Achievement Award. We will always remember his humbling speech  – what a true gentlemen.

TAXATION MAGAZINE – 90th birthday

Tolley’s TAXATION magazine celebrated its 90th Birthday in October 2017. We were proud to make a contribution to the 90th anniversary edition of the magazine, which asked various tax pundits what they would see in the 100th anniversary edition.

We also attended a great TAXATION party at The British Library, where we sampled the tasty 90th birthday cake.
