_______________________________2019 ANNUAL DINNER
One hundred members and guests attended the 101st Annual Dinner held at Kettering Golf Club. The Guest Speaker was Mrs Lesley Suddes (ex Kettering High School) whose talk - entitled “Kettering to Cornwall – A Maritime Journey” was well received by the assembled company. Following a distinguished career in the Royal Navy, Mrs Suddes is now National Chairman of the National Coastwatch Institution. At the end of the evening Mrs Suddes was presented with a bouquet of flowers and a cheque for £110 in aid of National Coastwatch. Mrs Suddes has subsequently thanked the Old Cytringanians for An enjoyable evening and the generous donation.
As has become the norm a donation from the proceeds of the raffle of £110 was sent to Cransley Hospice. We have received correspondence from the hospice with thanks for the donation and our support.
