Wooden Spoon Yorkshire Lunch does it again

Wooden Spoon Yorkshire hosted their ever popular Sporting Lunch at The Queens Hotel in Leeds. Over 500 guests travelled from far and wide for the sell out lunch where guest speaker, rugby legend Willie John McBride MBE, had the room hanging on his every word with his wonderful tales of rugby.

Yorkshire Comedian, Mike Farrell, was also on hand to close proceedings and had the entire room in fits of laughter for his entire performance. Thanks also go to Roger Dakin for hosting the event and Richard Strudwick with his inimitable style as Toastmaster. It was also a great honour to have Stuart Lancaster attending on the top table. The Yorkshire lad was extremely well received by our guests!

Thank you to everyone who came to the lunch and helped raise an outstanding £39,000 for disadvantaged and disabled children across Yorkshire. We’d also like to give a special thank you to the Viper Rooms and Marshall Woodridge for their sponsorship and our 1st XV companies for their unstinted valued patronage.
