January

Friday 18th – Quiz Night at Poynton British Legion 7.00 For 7.30

From Helen and Kevin

Thank you to all those branch members who attended the branch quiz night on 18th January. The proceeds came to a magnificent £583 which will go into the branch contingency fund.

Thank you to all those who provided raffle prizes - £266 of the proceeds was generated by the raffle, so this was a significant contribution to the success of the evening. Thanks also to Graham, our chairman, for providing the quiz prizes

A huge thank you to Jo and Kath who set the questions, read them out, and adjudicated and without whom the evening wouldn't have happened.

And last but not least, thank you to all our helpers on the night (and before and afterwards) : Charlie and Carol, Kath and Duncan, Rosemary, Mel and Trish for baking hams, slicing cheese, selling raffle tickets, manning the door, shopping, collecting and taking away the rubbish, and doing the washing-up!

We couldn't have done it without the splendid contributions of all these people.

Hope to see you all next year.
