Rugby League legend, Martin Offiah MBE is the confirmed Guest of Honour at the London Rugby League Foundation dinner which will be held on Thursday 8th November at the Hilton Kensington Olympia. The fundraising dinner is being organised by the London Rugby League Foundation which aims to grow participation and engagement with rugby league in London and the South East.
Martin Offiah is the greatest English try scorer in the history of Rugby League. Born in Hackney he was playing rugby union when Widnes coach Dough Laughton persuaded him to switch from the then amateur code to professional Rugby League in 1987. During a stellar career with Widnes, Wigan, London Broncos and Salford, plus stints in Australia with St George and Easts, he became the greatest wingman of the modern era. In 2015, he was revealed as one of five former greats immortalised in the rugby league statue at Wembley Stadium.
The dinner will feature a Q&A with Martin but also recognise key volunteers within the game through the presentation of community volunteer awards for London and the South East. There'll be a charity auction, a sports quiz and other prizes throughout, so it promises to be an unmissable night.
All proceeds raised will directly fund support for grass roots rugby league in London. For information on tickets and sponsorship packages, contact Richard Jones by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
