We would like to welcome you to the Ugo Monye Testimonial Year. During the course of the 2012/2013 we are planning a series of unique and fun events celebrating not only Ugo's achievements on the rugby field, but also his outstanding contribution to the community at large.
Ugo is enjoying his 10th season with Harlequins and has over 171 appearances and scored 370 points for them. As well as his hugely successful club career Ugo has 13 England caps and played an important part in the British& Irish Lions Tour in 2009 where he was the highest try scorer in the tournament. In addition to this illustrious career, Ugo is a thoroughly 'nice' guy who always takes the time to get to know the fans, work with the local communities and is never without a smile.
Ugo will always go out of his way to help and this year is no different. Continuing to work with the charities he acts as a patron on behalf of, Ugo is keen to support them where possible through raising awareness and funds helping them to enter into more activities and research projects.
We, the Testimonial Committee, are planning a year that everyone can take part in with events including an intimate and exclusive black tie dinner in the England Changing Rooms at Twickenham, a Summer drinks party in the City of London in July, a Fashion Show at the Playboy Club in September and an Autumn Internationals Dinner in October.
Not only do we want the year to be fun but our objective is also to raise as much money as possible for the chosen charities... Help a Capital Child, The Prostate Cancer Charity, The Rugby Players Benevolent Fund, and the A21 Campaign.
We do look forward to hopefully meeting you at one of the planned events throughout the year. Thank you for your support,
The Ugo Monye Testimonial Committee
