For the past decade, the Brend Collection has been committed to supporting the local charity, North Devon Hospice, through the organisation of an annual Sportsman's Dinner.
This year, with the support of 200 enthusiastic local residents from North Devon, who were captivated by guest speaker, the Rugby legend Phil Vickery MBE DL, the annual fundraising event soared to new heights by raising an impressive £19,500 in a single evening. Raising £17,500 for North Devon Hospice and £2,000 for Sands charity.
Hosted annually at The Barnstaple Hotel, and sponsored by Molson Coors, the Sportsman's Dinner has achieved an extraordinary milestone by raising a remarkable £130,00 in contributions throughout the years. This event has had the privilege of hosting many distinguished guest speakers in the past, including Jeremy Guscott, David Campese, Scott Quinell, Nigel Owens MBE, Lewis Moody MBE, Shane Williams MBE, Zinzan Brooke MNZM, Jonathan Davies OBE and the late Sir Colin Meads KNZM MBE.
