Champions Speakers are pleased to announce that veteran athlete Derek Redmond and England rugby star Manu Tuilagi hosted a charity event for the Butterwick House Hospice this Friday.
The Butterwick Hospice Sportsman’s Dinner will take place at Hardwick Hall, an Elizabethan country house in the Derbyshire countryside, also showed the first match of the Rugby World Cup, as hosts England take on Fiji.
A registered charity, Butterwick Hospice strives to care for as many people as possible of all ages who are living with a progressive life-limiting illness, and all of their services at their three centres are provided free of charge to those diagnosed and to their loved ones.
Manu Tuilagi, the event’s after dinner speaker and match commentator, is one of the brightest prospects in world rugby and, at just 24 years old, is tipped to shine in next year’s Aviva Premiership with Leicester Tigers and in the Six Nations for England.
Event host and entertainer Derek Redmond, meanwhile, is a British sporting great, having held the British record for the 400 metres sprint, won gold medals in the 4x400 metres relay at the World Championships, European Championships and Commonwealth Games, and captured the world’s imagination with his emotional father-son struggle to the finish line in the 1992 Olympics.
