Sanders become main sponsor for ERFC Gala Dinner
Following a series of successful fundraising dinners, Bruce Hayter from Rix and Kay Solicitors, asked if we would like to step up as main sponsors for this year’s Eastbourne Rugby Club Gala Dinner, which it was a privilege to do. This was Sanders fourth year of being a sponsor.
Bruce and his marketing manager, Lynette Rendle have organised a number of dinners over the years, raising much needed revenue for the Club. We have been very fortunate to have enjoyed the company of Willy John McBride, Andy Ripley, Simon Shaw, Richard Hill, David Duckham, Sean Fitzpatrick, Nigel Owens and now this year the legend that is Brian “Pitbull” Moore.
The dinner was held at The Grand Hotel, Eastbourne on Friday 6th July 2018 where a fantastic three course meal was enjoyed and hosted by Roger Dakin, former hockey international and speaker, after which the former England and Lions hooker Brain Moore took to the stage to give a most entertaining of after dinner speeches.
It was a honour to sit next to and enjoy the company of Mr Moore.
From the noise, laughter and wine consumed on our Sanders table it was also clear our guests enjoyed themselves, as did everyone who attended this event.
A healthy and essential amount was raised for the club and we wish the teams at ERFC a successful next season.
This will certainly go down as one of those nights you remember forever!
