Press Release  •  Feb 21, 2012 13:53 GMT

Welbeck Group recently hosted a special 6 Nations Evening for clients and guests at their offices in Basinghall Street. World Cup Winners and former England Internationals, Richard Hill MBE and Andy Gomarsall MBE were special guests along with former Scotland winger Kenny Logan.

The evening was in partnership with London Scottish FC and Klas International.  It was attended by clients of Welbeck Group, together with Rugby supporters from London Scottish and their main sponsors Deutsche Bank.

Guests were given the opportunity to pose questions to the former internationals on the panel about the Calcutta Cup, with Kenny Logan coming under particular fire over Scotland’s defeat.  Other subjects included fascinating insights to the World Cup 2003 from Richard Hill, plus the panel gave their predictions for the 6 Nations and opinions on a host of other Rugby subjects.

Over 100 guests enjoyed the discussion with Rupert Crowfoot from Six Physio winning a bottle of Bollinger signed by all the players in the business card draw.

Former England flanker, Richard Hill said afterwards: “I had great fun. It was a good mix of business people and rugby fans and it’s a pleasure to talk about an England victory again.”

This was echoed by his former teammate Andy Gomarsall: “I am a client of Welbeck, so I am a big fan of their energy and ethos. The evening reflected how they perform as a company.  I really enjoyed the chance to have some fun and talk to the real fans of the game.”

Greg Knight, CEO and Managing Partner of Welbeck, said: “The evening was a great success. We are big supporters of Rugby, so to have World Cup winners spending time with clients in our boardroom was not only fun, but a great honour.  I am really looking forward to us hosting more of these events throughout the year.”

Last word on the evening went to Kenny Logan:  “I attend many of these events through Klas and my involvement with Welbeck. This one was an evening of fun and light Rugby banter. All the guests were fans and it was a really great evening. I can’t wait to do another. I hope all who attended become Welbeck clients.”

The 6 Nations evening was the first in a series of Q&A sessions with high class sportspeople being held in partnership with Klas and Welbeck Group. Details of the next event will be released soon.
