Champions Celebrity are pleased to report the success of Hospitality Action’s Sporting Legends Luncheon, held at the 5 star Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in London on Friday 17th October. The event was devised to raise funds for the Hospitality Industry Benevolent Organisation, who offer vital assistance to all those who work or have worked in UK hospitality and find themselves in a crisis.
We were able to supply the organisers with a slew of sports legends to host tables at the luncheon, allowing guests to be entertained at close quarters by their sporting heroes, while digging deep for those crucial funds.
The keynote speaker was World Cup winning scrum half, Matt Dawson MBE, who shared stories from his fantastic rugby career. Tables were hosted by snooker legend Willie Thorne, Ashes winner Matthew Hoggard MBE, former Olympic athlete Derek Redmond, Grand National winning jockey Bob Champion MBE, ex World Light-Heavyweight Boxing Champion John Conteh and The King of Darts Bobby George.
