Amazing People Doing Amazing Things.

Headcase was delighted and honoured to be invited, as guests, to the Solvents Industry Association Annual AGM and Conference at the end of September. The event was held in Cheshire at the Mottram Hall Hotel. The SIA does brilliant work for its members, and for the public, and it raises thousands of pounds for Charity each and every year.

So admit it, solvents are something you vaguely remember from chemistry lessons at school or something to do with DIY tasks about the house, right? You’re not wrong but solvents become much more interesting when you realise that they are a key component of things like perfume… and gin!

Still, the main reason that Headcase was at the evening dinner was as the chosen Charity to be presented with the proceeds from the raffle which is held each year (we even won a rather nice bottle of gin!). We’re delighted to tell you that after a brief talk about Headcase and its work, Head Fundraiser Colin Speirs was presented with a cheque (and a kiss!) for £1425 from Chairman Andrew Ford, which is a) amazing and b) beat the previous best amount raised by nearly 50%!

Even better is that we also made some great contacts at the event that could really help with our upcoming first in human vaccine trial next year.
