Wayne Hindle Charity Dinner On Behalf Of The Christie
Thursday 9 January 2014 - The Premier Lounge, 40 Corporation
Road, Audenshaw, Manchester. M34 5LP
Many thanks to all those who attended the Wayne Hindle Charity
Dinner on the 9th January in honour of our dear friend Mr Wayne
Hindle who lost his life to cancer in December 2012. We are
pleased to annouce a charity fund total of £1,546.09 in
aid of The Christie Charity. The dinner raised £1475 and
the Christie envelope collection raised £71.09.
The evening was a fabulous night with 97 guests having a
three course dinner in the ever popular Premier Suite Lounge
Audenshaw - what is becoming the Las Vegas of East Manchester.
Located in a nice function room in Audenshaw, decorated in
the colours of Wayne Hindle's ever popular Manchester
City, back dropped with nice lighting, the atmosphere was
electric, as if the big man himself was ever present, which he
was of course with his mug shot nicely projected on the
wall of the Premier Suite Lounge, courtesy of disco
king - Peter Hutch!
After a gorgeous meal provided by the kitchen staff, Jim
Whitley sang his soft dulcet tones on each and every table,
greeting the gentlemen with a warm smile and handshake, and the
ladies with a hug and kiss. (What a smoothie. He makes James
Bond look rough that guy. His vocal skills are as smooth as his
Steve Daley was absolutely brilliant with his life story in
football, culminating at his torrid time at Manchester City in
the late 70's as a £1.5m flop. Not deterred by the number
of Manchester City fans in the audience who bought season
tickets that year, Steve laid it on thick and fast and had the
place in raptures in no time. So much so he received a standing
ovation in some quarters of the room. If you ever have the
chance to see Steve Daley, go and see him, his after dinner
speech is a class act and a tad different from some of the
normal speakers on the circuit.
This was followed by Josh Daniels, a very talented comidian who
also had a few musical instrument skills along with some very
funny lines that just about finished everybody off. The guy was
top draw, and a typical geordie, funny right to the end.
During the evening a charity auction of football memrobilia
brought in a few unexpected bids from some quarters of the
room, so much so that I believe the credit cards were on fire
next day! There is just no end to some peoples generosity and
the big man Wayne would have had a right old chuckle seeing the
sights of people throwing money for a good cause.
