Over £5000 raised at Christmas Lunch on Brighton Pier!

On Wednesday 7th December Palm Court Restaurant on Brighton Pier was alive with colour and merriment as Wooden Spoon Sussex hosted their annual Christmas lunch. 176 supporters attended which included guests from  Sussex RFU, Sussex Referees, 15 Sussex rugby clubs, Sussex Cricket Club and members of Wooden Spoon Surrey. Amongst the guests was Rob Andrew, newly appointed Chief Executive of Sussex Cricket, and we would like to thank him for his support on the day.

The delicious three course lunch included a very traditional fish and chip supper, and was followed by superb entertainment from professional comedian Ian Irving.

The event raised a magnificent £5,257 to be spent on capital projects to benefit disadvantaged children and young people living in Sussex.
