Omar Group CEO abstains for charity

15th April 2014

Dean WestmorelandOmar Group CEO, Dean Westmoreland, (who likes the odd pint) has agreed to abstain from alcohol in aid of Wooden Spoon, The Children’s Charity of Rugby.

Inspired by Finance Director Tim Silk’s, Bury St Edmunds RUFC Memorial Cycle Ride, from 7th to 11th May in aid of St Nicholas Hospice Care, Dean has decided to take on his own challenge. Dean will be abstaining from all alcohol, from 12th April after the Wooden Spoon, St Georges Day lunch in Leicestershire, until Ladies Day at Newmarket Races on 11th of July.

This should be quite a test for Dean who is the grandson of a brewer, son of a publican and a man who has earned quite a reputation for liking ‘a few cold ones’ after the doors close at exhibitions! Dean agreed to rise to the challenge after passing comment that “The January Dryathon that was undertaken by so many in aid of Cancer Research UK was not that much of a challenge.”

Dean hopes to raise at least £5,000. You can contact him to make a donation via email, by telephone on 01842 816 402, or cut out the middleman and visit! Please visit www.woodenspoon.comfor more details.
