Howzat For Christmas Giving!
At the beginning of December the festive season got underway with great entertainment and generous giving. Over 600 guests attended the annual Lords Taverners’ Christmas Lunch at Newcastle’s Civic Centre, raising almost £40,000 for the sporting charity.
Entertainment on the day came from the 1966 World Cup hat-trick hero, Sir Geoff Hurst who spoke about his days playing top class football, Doddie Weir did a sterling job as master of ceremonies and local impressionists, the Mimic Men, were the supporting act.
Jamie Graham, the regional chair of Lords Taverners’ Northumberland Durham, thanked everyone for their generosity and continued support of the charity, which gives young people a sporting chance.
