Quinssa Webinar with Chris Robshaw hosted by Nick Mullins
Quinssa hosted their first event of the season billed as the Mighty Quinn meets the Might Commentator.
Nick Mullins guided Chris through the highs and lows of his Quins career with a lot of laughs that was entertaining for all.
In addition we raised over £2000 for their nominated charities Harlequins Foundation, specifically the Jesters wheelchair rugby team , Canine Partners and the Matt Ratana Foundation.
Many thanks to all that contributed and especially to Mark Hoyal who won a Robbo Match shirt in the raffle, this was destined to be won by him as he was born in San Diego!
