Sir Terry Wogan receives honorary degree ahead of TOGs Convention

The University of Leicester has conferred an honorary on Sir
Terry Wogan.

The 71 year-old
broadcaster is a regular visitor to the TOG’s (Terry’s Old Geezers) Convention,
hosted by Leicester Conferences.

Before the
ceremony, he said: “I owe more to the university than it owes to me. I am
substantially humbled because people like me don’t deserve
degrees.”

“The University of Leicester has been the generous and
hospitable host for some years to me and my loyal listeners, for the three-day
Mardi Gras that is the TOGS’ Convention.”

TOGs organiser Norman Macintosh the Honorary Doctorate
as “a very nice gesture for Sir Terry who, I think, has more of an affiliation
for Leicester than for some other places. He
enjoys the time at the University, and he says they look after us very well.
It’s a lovely honour to give him”.

The TOGs
Convention returns for the sixth time to the University in
September.
