A Famous Victory

PPI’s HSE Manager, Guy Lawrence, played a brilliant game of Yut during the annual office Christmas party, resulting in him winning the grand prize.

Lorro’s starring role (in assisting his team to lose the game in a comprehensive fashion) was acknowledged by all present as worthy of the award. He professed his excitement in looking forward to a battle of wits with his new Smart TV!
