90 OLs gathered at the Royal Over-Seas League in St James's to celebrate a year of OL Sport. Hosted by the LOBFC, the remodelled evening saw representatives from the OL football, cricket, golf, fives and OL ladies' teams catch up over a delicious three-course meal at a central London venue. More 'young OLs' attended the evening than ever before, many of whom had played in OL Sports fixtures during the year, and were joined by the elder statesmen of OL Sport who have generously supported the dinner over the years.
The evening was a tremendous success with more time available for OLs to catch up with one another as well as the presentation of some individual awards from each OL Sports Club. The evening featured a display of OL sporting triumphs from throughout the years and was rounded off with a raffle, silent auction and live auction. All profits raised from the evening will be re-invested into OL Sport.
Thanks to all those who donated auction items, sponsored the evening, provided photographs for the display and to the OLs who participated and made it such a success!
