As many of you may already be aware, last week we held the Gentlemen's Dinner in The Walled Garden. Over 180 guests enjoyed a three course meal followed by our after-dinner guest speaker, Paul Merson; a former English professional footballer and manager, turned Sky Sports presenter.
Merson spoke for half an hour about his personal life, career and the struggles he faced being a professional footballer. He then answered questions for over 15 minutes, very open and honestly, before taking photos with some of you. He was thoroughly entertaining and there have been several praises about the evening as a whole. We would also like to thank those of you that donated to the Nottingham Children's Hospital via Paul Merson's "Dream Team" as you raised over £710!
Peter Benson (captain) has written a personal thank you:
"A note from me to thank everyone who came along, and I do hope enjoyed the dinner last Friday, it was a great success. What I do know is that we raised over £710 (via the "Paul Merson's Dream Team"). This has already been greatly appreciated by Nottingham Children's Hospital. They have told me to pass on huge thanks to everyone who contributedYou are all very kind.
