THE STEPHEN HENDRY THAILAND ROADSHOW 2008
Thursday May 22nd.
Hendry arrived a little earlier than expected and was greeted with a big
round of applause without Mike, who was acting as Master of Ceremonies

He immediately went to the pool table and played several games with
those present, including Pattaya's new Mayor, Khun Ittipol. The pool
area was packed with spectators, as indeed was the rest of the Queen
Vic. Standing room only was the order of the evening with over 150
people attending. A large number were outside looking through the
windows as well.
After playing pool for almost an hour Stephen entered the
main area of the Queen Vic where he sat down signing autographs and
signed a number of special Thailand Roadshow shirts. He was quite happy
to shake as many hands as were thrust his way, and pose with people for
photographs. He needed no prompting to go behind the bar area with all
the staff, and Vic & Jane, of the Queen Vic to pose for a group
During the evening English Cider and Draught Beer were reduced in price and everyone who bought either of these drinks was given a raffle
Stephen left later than scheduled after spending time answering
questions and meeting people.
After Stephen left the raffle tickets were drawn to distribute the
signed shirts. An impromptu auction was held after one customer asked to
buy one of the shirts. As Kevin Fisher, of Charity Club fame, was in
attendance, and people were made aware of the little girl who fell in a
fire, the auction was very well supported. The first shirt raised the
unbelievable sum of 15,000 Bt, and the total raised was 34,600 Bt.
Unfortunately Christine and Malcolm Boden of the Charity Club of Pattaya
were unable to attend to participate in the auction proceedings but they
were extremely pleased to hear how well Mike had performed in raising
such a large sum.
