Sporting Dinner with sporting legends supporting Alzheimers Research.

Vale Press were pleased to sponsor the Business Sporting Club Dinner in Stratford-upon-Avon last night where the guest speaker was Sir Ian McGeeghan OBE (nickname “Geech”)  – probably the greatest Rugby Union coach of all time. Head Coach of the British & Irish Lions for the tours of 1989, 1993, 1997 and 2009.

The raffle at the Dinner was in aid of Alzheimer’s – an incredibly worthwhile charity – and one which needs no introduction, as it affects the lives of so many.


It was a privilege to sit with Sir Ian and, rugby legend from the seventies, David Duckham MBE.

I asked them both who would be their first player of choice on a “Fantasy XV” team sheet.

Both gave me the same answer – Gareth Edwards.

Here’s a reminder why – a match in which David Duckham played.

Thanks again to those who bought raffle tickets and donated prizes and in particular to Jean & David Duckham who organised the dinner.
