Haslemere Rotary Club Meeting with Guest Speaker, Gary Grant, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman, The Entertainer

24/11/2021 @ 19:00 - 22:00


Following the successful `Gifts for local disadvantaged Children` campaign organised by Haslemere Rotary last Christmas, and supported by our local `The Entertainer` toy shop, Haslemere Rotary are delighted to be welcoming the company founder, Gary Grant, to our Haslewey venue in November.

Gary will give a presentation on the origins and growth of the family business, much of which was shaped by their own beliefs and business ethics. This is an astonishing story of growth whilst other established and larger retailers were falling away. The Entertainer was founded in 1981 in Amersham, Buckinghamshire by husband and wife team, Gary and Catherine Grant, who now with two of their sons, instil the driving force and mission – “To be the best-loved toyshop – one child, one community at a time”. Today, it continues to be the largest family-owned toy retailer in the UK with a total of 190 stores.

The £15 entrance fee includes a buffet meal with teas and coffees. A pay bar will also be available.

The profit from the evening will be divided between Haslemere Rotary charities and Gary’s own charities.

Please note:  For safety and logistical purposes on the night tickets are limited.  Interested members should contact Paul Mills (on behalf of the Haslemere Rotary Club) at jpm@prestwickfarm.co.uk to reserve places. To secure parking please include the car Reg No.
