Quiz Night & Fundraising Event

Quiz Night & Fundraising Event

On the evening of 16th June, The Diabetes UK Kingston Branch, held a Quiz Night at the United Reformed Church Hall in New Malden to raise funds for the Group. It was very well attended with a full hall and on this very rainy evening we were pleased to welcome the Mayor of Kingston, Councillor Geoff Austin and his lovely wife and Mayoress, Sheila Austin.The Quiz went very well with the Mayor’s team winning by just three points. There was also raffle with the Mayoress drawing the tickets and lots of lovely prizes. It was noted that the Mayoress managed to draw out the Mayor's tickets twice with a few shouts of “fix” coming from the floor. We were also pleased to see a very good team from Kingston Hospital Diabetes Team including Dr. Spring, Dr. Ye Kyaw, Lilian White, Alison Kelly, Claire Neely, Sue and others

Thanks to all the helpers behind the scenes, the joint Organisers Richard, our Chairman and his wife Jane and Pravin Patel for all their hard work in organising the Quiz Night and the Quiz Master, Paul Napthine for all his sterling work on producing a well balanced quiz. Thanks also to Clare for making some of the delicious food and anyone else not mentioned.
