13 December 2019 Christmas lunch

Eddie the Eagle Edwards

At the event he entertained guests with tales about how it all started, how he finally made it to the Winter Olympic Games, how his life changed after the games and what it was like to have a movie made about him.

Speaking after the lunch, Eddie said: “I had a great time in Nottingham. The NCBC lunch was a great occasion – I had a wonderful meal and lots of fun delivering my speech and meeting members and guests. It was also good to raise money for the club’s chosen charity Harmless and support such a worthwhile cause.”
