David Allen & Co Spice Up Rugby Testimonial Dinner



Posted: March 30th, 2009

On Friday 27th March a group of us attended Sale rugby player Steven Hanley’s Testimonial Dinner at the Shepherds Inn.

The evening started with a drinks reception then everyone took their seats for the 5 course meal (which was very tasty). Leanne managed 3 deserts and nearly got away with it but dropped cream down the front of her dress while having her photo taken.
The comedian kicked off the night and targeted our table as it was mainly female, calling us Liberty X and the Spice Girls!
Following that there were some interesting speeches from Jason Leonard, English and
British Lions prop and part of the England rugby world cup team who won back in 2003. Mervin Davies also gave a fascinating talk on his life in rugby.

There was then an auction and a raffle with some interesting prizes up for grabs and to close the evening everyone retired to the bar and enjoyed a few more drinks.

Overall we had a great night.
