Another fantastic Sportsman Dinner was held in April 2018, with over £10,500 raised in aid of Witchford Colts, local grassroots football, & the East Anglian Air Ambulance
The speakers this year were Matt Le Tissier and Micky Quinn who provided great stories from their past experience within the sport both while playing and into their media life on both Sky Sports and Radio.
As always the guys were very humble and welcoming to anyone that wished for a chat or photo and wanted to talk through specific memories of them as players.
The evening entailed the traditional heads and tails game before a 3 course meal auction which included Signed AJ Joshua Glove, Steven Gerrard Shirt, 1966 World Cup Winners Shirt, Various Golf 4 ball, a 9 hole golf Lesson with PGA Golf Pro and much more. The speakers then entertained the audience before finishing with a prize draw which included a star prize kindly donated from World of Computers again of an Ipad Pro.
The organiser Nigel Smith said “I have to say I was overwhelmed by the support and amount raised. It is so pleasing to see people’s generosity and watch this with the local grassroots football and if I can just help one person on the East Anglian Air Ambulance that is all worthwhile”.
