Charity Dinner A Resounding Success
We would like to thank all who attended our Charity Dinner at the Hotel Du Vin, Cheltenham last Wednesday evening in aid of the charity of the Rugby Players Association, Restart. Your continued support is truly appreciated and we hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did. Belated Birthday wishes also to one of our special guests of the evening, Kat Sutton from Minchinhampton who was given her seat at the event as an 18th Birthday present by her family; we hope you enjoyed meeting Freddie!
Thanks also to the team at Hotel Du Vin for serving a delightful meal and looking after us very well throughout the evening.
We are also extremely grateful to all who donated and purchased auction lots for the evening's auction which combined with a table raffle raised £2,300 for Restart. We hope that all lucky auction winners enjoy their purchases all in aid of this worthy cause.
The highlight of the evening was a Question and Answer session with stars from Gloucester Rugby Club Freddie Burns and Andy Deacon. Deacs was his usual hilarious self giving anecdotes from the amateur days and Freddie's insight into the modern professional game at the highest level was a treat for any rugby fan. Thanks to Andy and Freddie for giving up their time and for keeping us all amused.
