The Captain's Farewell
The Captain's farewell took place on 20th February and was again very well supported. The catering team as is custom, provided an excellent spread and the entertainer Billy Flywheel amused and transfixed with such aplomb, that he achieved a feat which hitherto had seemed impossible, silencing the Captain. It wasn't his only piece of magic and his efforts were very well received. During the evening the Captain also addressed the party and with the Lady Captain presented cheques to their chosen charities, the Hogarth Ward at the City Hospital Nottingham and Macmillan nurses.
The sum raised, over £20,000 is a tribute to the generosity of the many members and others who have supported the Captains this year and their very hard work in organising a succession of events to help raise the funds. Following dinner and the entertainment, a wonderful disco was enjoyed by many as the party powered on late into the night.
