Another Year, Another Performance
It hardly seems that a year has gone by but November is upon us again, and for the Simpson Wood men that meant just one thing, raising funds for the Forget Me Not Children's Hospice. It was time to strut their stuff down the catwalk again, strike a pose and woo the women of the audience in the process.
Bernadette of Morton Gledhill once again put the men through their paces and admitted that this year they were much easier to handle, remembering to pass on the right and keep their thumbs out. Upholding the very manly terminology to go out in a 'Scrum', they took to the catwalk like ducks to water.
It was clear from the audience that the gents' confidence levels were exceptionally high, quite possibly inflated by the 'pre-match' beers with a half time chaser. Christa Ackroyd, who once again hosted the show, asked the audience not to give them so much encouragement knowing what was to come. Alas, it didn't work and before we knew it, the scene that they were all waiting for had arrived. Highly anticipated for the last 12 months, the chaps arrived on the catwalk in their very own swimwear, and wearing James Bond masks to cover their modestyfaces, sending the audience into an absolute frenzy, the debate in the room about everyone's favourite Bond character came alive!
Then in one fell swoop the masks were off as 'Right Said Fred' filled the room, we're unsure if they were 'Too Sexy For Their Shirts', but we'll let you decide on that one. Covering derrieres with their masks, they left the catwalk; the worrying part is they are already planning how to top their performances next year! Let's see if you get another invite first eh boys?
Although the swimwear section had a lot of tongue in cheek and required some extra liquid courage, they undoubtedly enjoyed themselves, engaging with the audience through and through. Once again proving that accountants definitely are not boring, they believe it's the swimwear that sold-out the John Smith's Stadium.
