Firm Hosts Guests at Thames Valley First Gala Lunch

On 17 May, colleagues at Blandy & Blandy LLP were delighted to host guests at Phyllis Court Club, Henley-on-Thames, as part of 2019’s Thames Valley First Gala Lunch.

David Few, partner and head of Blandy & Blandy LLP’s Corporate team and current chairman of Thames Valley First, a business group established more than 30 years ago to promote the Thames Valley as a powerhouse of the UK economy, gave the introductory speech and welcomed special guest, double Olympic gold winning rower James Cracknell OBE.

David commented, “James’ eminent sporting achievements from the Olympics to rowing the Atlantic and the 2019 Boat Race are legendary, so to hear his personal account including his remarkable recovery from a near fatal brain injury was compelling and an honour.  His stream of stories from competing in The Coldest Race on Earth just six-month after his injury,  then crossing The Empty Quarter on a camel before returning to Cambridge and academia and completing the circle by at 49 rowing in a successful Boat Race team kept the audience completely engrossed and enthralled."

The Gala lunch welcomed 220 members of the Thames Valley’s professional community and their clients.
