By Nick Batten on 23 November, 2018

Former England Rugby Union player turned sports pundit, David Flatman is to host a charity Sports Lunch on Friday 8 February 2019 at the Apex City of Bath Hotel.

The event includes a drinks reception, two-course lunch, an interactive Q&A with sports personalities and a charity auction with some exclusive prizes, including a round of golf with professional Chris Wood and a stay in a luxury Spanish villa. All proceeds will be going to Bath’s only children’s hospice, Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW).

Karen Mathie, corporate fundraiser at CHSW, said: “David is well-known for his great punditry and quick wit and we are very excited to have him hosting our first Sports Lunch in this beautiful city.”

Joining David in the room will be Amy Williams MBE, former British skeleton racer and Olympic gold medallist; Jerry Gill, first team manager for Bath City Football Club; and Alan Smith, former Leicester, Arsenal & England Footballer and now Sky Sports presenter.

One of the local hospices that will benefit is CHSW’s Charlton Farm  – based in North Somerset –  which cares for children and young people who have a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and are not expected to survive into adulthood, as well as providing support to their families.

It’s situated in the countryside and is described as “a haven” where children and families come for short breaks to be nurtured and cosseted, returning home with “renewed vigour and a sense of anticipation for the next visit.”

Tickets to the lunch are on sale priced at £50 per individual and £450 for a table of 10. To book, visit or email

There are also two sponsorship packages available should your company want to increase brand awareness and support the vital work of CHSW.
