Sebastian Coe, Chairman of the British Olympic Association, will be hosting a gala dinner in Watford next month.

Lord Coe, who was instrumental in bringing last summer’s Olympic Games to London, will attend the event to raise money for Watford Mencap.

Guests at the Mercure London Watford Hotel, on March 14, are being promised the chance to grill the 12-time world record holder on "any questions" they have.

Simon Smith, general manager of the Mercure said: "We are delighted to host the evening and to work closely with a fantastic local charity."

Carol Bates, sales manager added: "Learning Disability is close to my heart so we are really proud to support people in Watford with a learning disability to live the life they want."
