End of Year Celebration Posted on 23rd November 2014 by Paul Common A fabulous End of Year Celebration last night; everyone seemed to have a good time! Thank you to the team at Holiday Inn Jesmond for their efficiency and cooperation, to our Sailing Secretary Clive Griffith who presented the trophies and Pippa Wallis for ensuring they were all in the right place at the right time. To Steve Meakin and Sue Lowrie who played their part in making sure the formal parts of the event happened, and to Tony Blenkinsop who took on the role of MC for the evening. A huge thanks to Karen and her team of Pink Ladies for organising it all. By extracting money from you for the raffle and a couple of games, you managed to raise almost £500 for the Club’s identified Charity, ‘Friends of Oliver’. We are most grateful to Grainger Games for donating the top of the range gaming console as the special raffle prize.
