Festive fun and laughter at Lord’s Taverners fundraiser

THANK THE LORD’S: Ian Irving (left) hosted the event, while Will Bayley (centre) spoke after dinner

Last Wednesday (December 6), the West Kent Lord’s Taverners hosted its festive lunch at The Spa Hotel.

More than 180 members, business partners and guests of the West Kent Region of the Lord’s Taverners – which is headed up by Dinah Morgan and David Carter – were present at the event which was hosted by comedian and MC Ian Irving, who was ably assisted by fellow comedian and auctioneer, Adger Brown.

Prior to the lunch guests were treated to Christmas carols performed by pupils from Broomhill Bank School in Rusthall – many of whom were singing in front of a live audience for the very first time.

“Following a delicious lunch, Paralympic table tennis gold medallist, Will Bayley MBE, revealed how he had risen to number one in the world of Paralympic table tennis and regaled guests with tales from his time on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing in 2019. Ian Irving then shared his comedy take on life, much to the amusement of everyone at the lunch,” a Lord Taverner’s spokesperson told the Times.

Adger Brown then oversaw an auction, which raised much-needed funds to support the Lord’s Taverners charity, whose work empowers and positively impacts the lives of young people facing the challenges of inequality.
