Top lawyer honoured with Lifetime Achievement Award

A respected East Yorkshire lawyer was “All Shook Up” at the Chamber Bridlington and Yorkshire Coast Business Awards when he was presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award – and met Elvis!

Julian Wild, a Partner at Rollits law firm, was presented with his award by Dr Ian Kelly, Chief Executive of the Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce.

Ian said: “I was delighted to present Julian with this prestigious and very well-deserved award. Julian, Food Group Director for Rollits, previously spent 25 years as Company Secretary and senior director at Northern Foods Plc, Hull and East Riding’s biggest company.

“Julian also served in 1999 as President of Hull & Humber Chamber of Commerce, the year the Chamber embarked on merging the five local Chambers of Commerce in the Humber into what is now recognised as one of the best Chambers of Commerce in the UK.

“Julian is also acknowledged as a huge patron of the arts and sport locally with his work at Hull Truck Theatre, in local and national football and horseracing”.

Receiving his award, Julian said: “This is a complete surprise, and a great honour to receive the Lifetime Achievement Award. When the Chamber invited me to Bridlington I never suspected anything like this would happen”.

Julian went on to meet Elvis, otherwise known as impersonator Steve Caprice, the award-winning tribute act based in East Yorkshire, who was backed by the Passionettes. Bridlington’s own classical soprano singer, 16-year-old Emmie Beckitt, brought the evening to a crescendo with her renditions of You’ll Never Walk Alone and Nessun Dorma and won a standing ovation from her home town audience.

The evening raised more than £5,000 on the night for Hornsea Inshore Rescue
