AFTER DINNER ENTERTAINMENT
A fresh and relatively new comedian, Pete is often described as a “thin” Johnny Vegas! … Original clever comedy
Extremely professional in his approach, he is instantly likeable and has a great rapport with his audience thanks to his dry sense of humour and witty ‘off the cuff’ remarks which are delivered in a unique but non-offensive manner.
“Pete is a hilarious comedian who I have seen in action on many occasions. He is a very likeable and talented young man who can alter his act to suit the audience, a rare talent indeed. His ‘This is your life’ for me was so funny but also very moving and something I’ll always remember. It’s nice to listen to a comedian who can make people laugh without being rude or offensive”.
Mike Stevo Stevenson , Sky Sports Commentator
“Audiences will always have an enjoyable time with Pete. He will help any event go with a lighthearted swing and loads of laughter. An evening with Pete is a guaranteed success.”
Simon Copley, Fundraising Manager, Hollybank Trust

WELCOME & OPENING REMARKS
COLONEL ANDY REID MBE
8:55 AM – 9:40 AM
“I’m a survivor, not a victim. I’m still here. I’m gonna start setting myself some goals and start moving forward”…
In October 2009, Corporal Andy Reid lost both of his legs and his right arm after stepping on an IED while on patrol in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, with the 3rd Battalion of the Yorkshire Regiment. His injuries were so bad that it was thought he would not survive; however, he astounded people with recovery, returning home after just two weeks in the hospital.
Serving in the British Armed Forces was a childhood dream for Andy, who continues to reflect positively on his time in the army and the fantastic opportunities and experiences it allowed him to experience. A testament to his attitude in overcoming adversity, he doesn’t let the severity of his injuries stop him from living his life with a positive mindset.
DANNY SCULTHORPE &
9:40 AM – 10:25 AM
IT’S OK NOT TO BE OK
“Ask a friend if they’re OK and ask them again because you just might trigger something inside them
and they get all their worries off their chest … that one question could save a life”
Danny was a professional rugby league player with a number of clubs; Rochdale, Wigan, Castlefield, Bradford, Huddersfield and Wakefield. He was fortunate to also represent his country and captained the team on two occasions.
During a training accident he was forced into retirement and suffered severe depression and despair
with frequent thoughts of taking his life.
Phil, an Australian ex Super League player with over 500 appearances in the top grade. He played for Souths in Australia and then to St Helens, Huddersfield, Swinton in the UK with great success, he also represented Scotland. After coming to the end of his playing career he embarked on a coaching career, this being very successful with numerous trophies won. Through management he suffered badly with depression on top of a family tragedy, his issues got worse.
Danny and Phil will openly speak about the difficult times and how as a result of talking and sharing
their thoughts they were able to recover.
