Residents and guests at The Poynton gathered for the annual sports dinner on May 9th. Drinks and canapés were enjoyed in the large lounge area before dozens of guests sat down to enjoy a sumptuous evening meal and hear tales from guest speaker William Pike. William shared his incredible story of survival following an accident on Mount Ruapehu in 2007 at the age of 22. He lay trapped in snow when the volcano erupted and subsequently needed to have his leg amputated. The story of his miraculous escape from the mountain and recovery that followed have since led William to a career as an inspirational speaker.
