The event was held at Wembley Stadium, whose Delaware North catering team produced a great tuna nicoise starter and a perfectly pink lamb main. Delaware North Companies UK MD Simon Dobson opted not to apply the one-hour blackout rule adhered to by many London restaurateurs between 9 and 10pm last night in support of climate change campaign, Lights Out London. Just as well – the vertiginous escalators at Wembley are hard enough to negotiate at the best of times, never mind by candlelight.
A great crowd turned up. I saw Ian Styles from Elior, who gamely brought along a real sportsman, Wasps and England rugby player Simon Shaw. David Field from Nestle was there; Malcom Plows from Coca Cola, Andy Kemp of 3663 and Arena, Peter Hazzard …
In the event, the Coca Cola team won the event, but more importantly, £82k was raised for Hospitality Action.
By the way, the name of the curling captain was Rhona Martin.
