This year’s the Sportman’s Lunch was held on Friday 13th October at the Mercure Hotel in Willerby. The day raised a staggering £40,167 and was sponsored by Williamsons Solicitors and they kindly offered to donate their Amy Johnson Moth as an Auction prize.
We were delighted to welcome the guest speaker Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards who was kindly sponsored by Henderson’s Insurance Brokers and NatWest. Eddie was Great Britain’s first Olympic Ski jumper who was ranked 55th in the world which qualified him as the only GB applicant for the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary. Although he did not win an Olympic medal, he did win a place in the hearts of spectators all around the globe.
