Friday 6th December 2013 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Nottingham
Back in July in the middle of summer the 2013 Christmas Lunch got off to a flying start with emails and phone calls requests for tables, even when we were in the middle of summer people were thinking about Christmas, the response was fantastic resulting in the event was sold out in August.
Just like the old days, bookings were still coming in November, the Crowne Plaza Hotel Nottingham were really pleased with a full house.
We had two close up magicans attending the tables during and after lunch showing us their close up skills before we were entertained by Aaron James, it’s not easy trying to keep order with nearly 400 guests but he did an excellant job.
A big ‘Thank You’ goes out to everybody who kindly donated a prize for the auction and to those who bid for a prize. Thanks also go to George Kennady from Maun Motors for allowing us to auction off the gallon bottle of whisky that was donatated by Sinbad Plant.
Grateful thanks to our sponsors Dash Commercial Finance for sponsoring the Champagne Draw, and also our main sponsor The Guild who did a lot of hard work in arranging full and half page advertising space inside the bigger A5 size menus – how many of you took home all their little goody bags?
As always our MC for the day Geoff Harris was kept busy taking fines for people answering their mobile phones.
The companies who donated an auction prize are :- T C Harrisons, Notts County Crickets Club, Crowne Plaza Hotel, Polypipe, Thomas Bow, Dash Finance, Terry Paine, The Guild, Kal Tire. Your generosity is very much appreciated.
