Successful Quiz.

The Autumn Quiz attracted 92 people this year and was again at the Aldingbourne Sports and Social Centre. Lin and Matthew Crompton were again wonderful quizmasters, the fish and chips were provided, as always, by Royals in Bognor Regis and a generous raffle helped to raise the total raised to £690.

We hope to see all our supporters at the branch Christmas meeting on 27th November, where the Sundown Ukulele Band will be entertaining us and refreshments will be served.

32nd AGM

 

We were very privileged to have Sally Light, Chief Executive of MNDA as our guest for the day on Monday, 24th April. Sally visited several people living with MND and, at a special lunch, awarded an Extra Mile Award to Sandra Holden, one of our MND nurses.

In the evening she attended our AGM and, as well as giving an interesting and inspiring speech, she presented awards to 5 people who had been branch members for 30 years and were all still active in the branch! These were Frances Ramsden, Kitty Mounstephen, Margaret Tester, Helen and Robert Clifford-Jones.

Autumn Quiz

Our autumn quiz has raised £602.00 !

In spite of the fact that it was Bonfire night, 75 people attended the quiz and enjoyed the evening, especially the fish and chips and fantastic raffle! Our new Quizmasters, Lin and Matt, created a very challenging set of questions, which had teams scratching their heads and led to a great deal of discussion.

A Big Thankyou to everyone
