Dundee Sports Dinner returns after pandemic hiatus 

Sports Challenge 2019

THORNTONS’ Sports Challenge Dinner is to return after a three-year break as the business community across the city comes together to raise funds for local charities.

Thanks to the generosity of event supporters over the past six years, £200,000 has been raised for children’s charities across Scotland and organisers hope to generate a further £50,000 this year.

Sports Challenge is a ‘must attend’ event in the corporate calendar, perfect for entertaining, team building, and fundraising. Dundee’s ultimate, sports themed black-tie dinner will return to Apex City Quay Hotel on Thursday 18 May 2023.

Teams will be tested on their sporting knowledge and observational skills in the Question of Sport style quiz hosted by sporting legends, Andy Nicol and Alan McInally. With round favourites like ‘what happens next’ and the ‘cryptic picture board’, teams will compete to lift the trophy and be crowned Sports Challenge champions – all while raising money for Scottish children’s charities.

This year the money raised will be split between two Scottish children’s charities, namely The Archie Foundation and Childrens Aid Scotland.

Colin Graham of Thorntons said: “The Sports Challenge Dinner is one of our calendar highlights and to have it return following a three-year hiatus due to the Covid19 pandemic makes the event even more special.

“We will be joined by some recognisable faces in Scottish sports including hosts, rugby legend Andy Nicol and former player and Sky Sports pundit Alan McInally.

“This year we are hoping to break the quarter of a million pounds mark which would be an incredible achievement and provide some much needed funding to charities across our city.”

With only a few tables remaining, guests can reserve a slot by emailing events@thorntons-law.co.uk.
