Charles Stanley at the Harlequins v Clermont game

As part of our sponsorship with Harlequins rugby, a number of Charles Stanley employees from around the group hosted 47 of their IFA’s and professional contacts at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday the 18th January for an unmissable Harlequins v Clermont game.

We were greeted at the gates by our designated hospitality team who escorted us to the private 1866 hospitality lounge where we enjoyed light refreshments with our guests.

The day got off to a great start with Harlequins Business Academy Director, and former Royal Marines Officer, Roderic Yapp sharing his experience of how he continues to help players through the transition from their rugby career into retirement; whether that be planned retirement or sudden retirement through injury. It was insightful to see how Roderic takes the players’ skills and applies them to the commercial world – a thoroughly engaging start to a jampacked day.

After Roderic’s talk, we all headed through the tunnel for a behind the scenes access to the Twickenham Stoop where Harlequins player, Jack Clifford, gave us a private tour of the stadium.  It was thoroughly entertaining listening to Jack, who is also part of England’s Rugby Union squad, and the learning of the history of the club as well as pre-game preparations. After the stadium tour, we had the opportunity to view the trophy cabinet where we saw all of the trophies that had been won over the history of Harlequins to date.

After the tour, along with our guests, we enjoyed a complimentary bar and a selection of hot food for lunch while we were waiting for the game to start.  We had a raffle on the day with the winning prize being a signed Harlequins shirt!

As kick-off loomed, we all braved the cold and made our way outside with our Charles Stanley branded blankets and hand warmers to enjoy the game in the hospitality seats.  What a view we had!

Despite Harlequins losing 19-26 on the day, the team showed resilience and fight against Clermont and delivered a performance to be proud of on the day.  A thoroughly enjoyable day was had by all in attendance.
