As a member of the Peterborough Sports Club Lunch / Peterborough SportsAid committee I would like to invite you to join us at the next lunch on 23rd November where we will have after dinner speaker Geoff Miller OBE.

This event is a two course meal with coffee, followed by an inspiring or thought-provoking speech from a well known sports celebrity. At the event we raise money for local young people in sports as their sponsor. These funds help with the cost of their sports kit, training, travel, events and such like.

Sometimes these young people only have the bank of mum and dad to rely on, and our money means so much to them, not just financially but for motivation too.

At each event we have a different speaker and this month we have one of the most respected figures in cricket, Geoff Miller OBE. He has played for Derbyshire, Essex and then at test level with England. He was awarded an OBE in 2014 in the New Years Honours List.

After retiring, his charisma and Test experience saw Geoff very much in demand as an after dinner speaker and he built a reputation for both his humorous anecdotes and insightful views into the game. That same insight led to him being appointed to the ECBs Board of Selectors under the Chairmanship of David Graveney in 2000, where he was instrumental in putting together the historic 2005 Ashes winning squad. His success in the role saw him promoted to the new position of National Selector in 2008.

Geoff is never short of an amusing story about what went on in cricket touring parties and on the domestic scene – a quality that saw him voted Sporting Speaker of the Year in both 2013 and 2014 and Cricket Speaker of the Year for the past 4 years.

If you would like to book a table for your colleagues and clients then it is £300 for the table of 10 people, or if you would to attend on your own or in a smaller group, then spaces are £32 per person.

Please see the event page for more details – and if you would like to join my table for this event please contact me directly.
