Barnstaple Dinner with Phil Vickery
WOODEN Spoon Devon kick-started their event calendar in style with a fantastic Barnstaple Dinner on 12 January 2018 attended by Wooden Spoon’s lead ambassador Phil Vickery MBE DL.
The evening was organised by George Hammet and was sponsored by Westerly BMW. We were delighted to welcome 180 guests to the Brend Hotel Group’s Barnstaple Hotel, where the evening started with a wonderful three-course dinner.
We proudly welcomed Phil Vickery to the stage to talk to all about his career journey, the highs and the lows and the hilarious adventures he had along the way. Phil captivated everyone with his stories, but more so with what Wooden Spoon means to him and why he is lead ambassador to what he considers such an amazing and hard working charity.
Phil then handed over the mic to Tank Sherman, hilarious comedian and Wooden Spoon supporter. Tank took control of the auction which raised an incredible amount of money.
Wooden Spoon Devon would like to thank George Hammett for helping make this event happen, to BMW for sponsoring the event and to Carp Cycles, Brend Hotels and the Exeter Brewery for their support of the event.
With everyone’s help we have managed to raise £5,000 which will be spent on a project in Devon supporting children and young people with disabilities and facing disadvantage. Our thanks to everyone who helped make this possible.
