Christmas Lunch Saturday 1st December 2018

Events Posted on Sat, December 01, 2018 20:40:49

We held our Christmas Lunch and draw at the BAWA club on Southmead Road, Bristol.

This is one of our annual get-togethers rather than a fund raising event, it’s a chance to catch up with old friends and start the Christmas season properly.

The meal and service was first class and the staff at BAWA looked after us in their usual professional manner.

Christmas Card Sale Saturday 17th November 2018

Heather and Debbie organised a Christmas Card Sale at Cabot Court. We were treated to hot drinks and mince pies and there was even a “Guess the weight of the cake” competition.

In all we managed to raise £73.10 for the Bristol branch of the Huntington’s Disease Association so well done to all those who helped.

Quiz Friday 6th November 2018

We held a quiz night at the Begbrook Social Club, on Frenchay Park Road in Stapleton, to raise funds for the Huntington’s Disease Association.

This was a new venue for us and the staff at the club were very helpful and made us feel welcome. As it was a charity event, the club provided the room free of charge which meant that what we raised that evening was all profit.

There was a bar and Pam provided some lovely rolls so we were all well looked after.

Teams paid a fee to enter the quiz and we also held a raffle to boost funds. The result on the night was a magnificent £338 that will go towards helping our families in and around Bristol.

Many thanks to all those who helped organise the event and also to our wonderful quiz master, Alan.

As we all know, it’s the taking part that matters but for those interested in the final scores…
