Our 10th Anniversary Celebration Dinner was an ideal occasion to celebrate the work of the REACT Foundation and the sharing of good practice in engaging with local young people. It was an entertaining evening for students, teaching staff and professionals who networked over great Cumbrian food and drinks at Whitehaven Golf Club. There was also an opportunity to bid on some exciting items and raise funds for the charity. 

Our keynote speaker for the evening was Internationally Renowned David Kendall. David entertained the 220 strong audience with his witty and humourous anecdotes. The University of Cumbria's Frank Peck also said a few words on the occasion.

REACT Engineering sponsored the Pre-Dinner Drinks Reception and the following companies hosted tables for the evening:- 

Amec, ARUP, Atkins, Baines Wilson, Britain's Energy Coast, Bluefin, Create Technologies, Cumberland Building Society, GEN2, Gibbons, Hidef Aerial Surveying, JFN, Lakes College, LLWR, MACE Group, Morgan Sindall, NMP, NNL, Nuclear Technologies, Sellafield Limited, Shepley, Westinghouse and Westlakes Engineering.  Thank you for your support.
