Don't take our word for it....here's what our guests say about the Charity Dinner

"My group thoroughly enjoyed the evening and the format is perfect. Having a well-known sportsman such as Jan Mølby will always result in a successful after dinner speech but to combine that with a comedian as talented as Josh Daniels was superb entertainment. We will certainly look to see what you plan for next year." Ivan Green

"It was an excellent night and I will be definitely attending next year again. Well done to all the team. Over £9K is a fantastic achievement." John McGlone

"I always believe that putting the interests of others at heart who are less fortunate is something that we all like to aspire to, but when you attend an event such as this the levels of hard work and commitment to make them happen are truly outstanding and it was a pleasure to support the event." Gary Lunt

“I had a thoroughly great night. The speakers were outstanding, the comedian was hilarious. I’m glad to have helped local charities and will definitely go back.” Michael Wilkinson

"Another excellent evening with a brilliant speaker and outstanding comedian." Stuart Bonham

A great evening." Michael Jeans

“It’s a fantastic evening to relax with friends and guests. I have been booking tables for over 10 years and each year my guests always have a great evening. It’s great value and always in my diary.” Steve Perry

“The charity dinner is an excellently organised and thoroughly enjoyable night out for a fantastic cause. Whether you’re someone who wants to meet business contacts in a relaxed environment or you simply want a good time with friends you will enjoy the evening immensely.” Simon Chandler
