Cork hats and anything Australian were the order of the day. Excellent entertainment by Alan Roberts including a sing-a-long with a rousing rendition of Waltzing Matilda and the Australian National Anthem.
The evening coincided with the presentation of 2 cheques, £3784.00 from Ferndown club, the money raised from our sponsored treadmill walk in 2018, and in total £6580.50 from Dorset clubs. Holly Goodberry (Recovery Projects Manager) accepted the cheques on behalf of RBL.
We were honoured by the presence of Alan White and Joe Dillnutt both of whom were medallist at the recent Invictus Games in Sydney.
Alan’s medal was around the neck of most club members at some point during the evening. Alan’s young family came along in support, they were in Sydney to see dad win his medal.
