“Thanks for the invite to Mandela Plate Luncheon, which I thoroughly enjoyed.  I’ve been to a few Rugby Lunches and this was the best by some distance, although I should add that having grown up in South Africa I’m somewhat biased. Hugh Bladen is a one of my childhood hero’s – a few times during his speech I closed my eyes and was taken back to watching games with my father!  I was lucky enough to have met Nelson Mandela, so the insights shared by your second speaker, who did an amazing job, were moving. Thanks again and I look forward to the next one.”
