We will trail and profile all elements of the lunch including the Great London Scot award winners and their inspirational achievements.
Since the last e-mail, ticket sales have been excellent with the vast majority of the guest from the last two years once again signing up.
To join the party and book a table of ten or a section of a table, please send your booking form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively, book for yourself and we'll seat you with other great guests.
When London Scottish rugby club established St. Andrew’s Day at the Savoy two years ago, the Club created the Great London Scot Awards to recognise and celebrate the inspirational achievements of Scots north and south of the border. This year’s winner of the Great London Scot for Outstanding Young Talent is David Smith, MBE. Please see below a short biog of David and a couple of links.
David Andrew Smith, MBE is from Aviemore and took up Paralympic Rowing in 2009 after representing Great Britain in able-bodied Karate between 1993-1999 and Bobsleigh from 2002-2008. David was born with clubfoot and came close to having his right foot amputated at birth. After spending his first three years learning to walk in special boots and plaster casts, a career in Olympic sport seemed doubtful. However, that was just a hurdle he needed to get over and it was not going to hold him back. Among many inspirational achievements David won Gold in the mixed coxed four at Eton Dorney during the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
Please come along and support David on Friday, 27th November.
