Geoff Hewes Memorial Quiz night in aid of Alzheimer Research UK. £15 a head of which £10 will go to the Alzheimer’s Research UK and £5 will pay for some of Jackie’s slap up food!
July 19 @ 7:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Geoff was a founder member of the club in 1953, president of the club for many years, and a constant supporter of all of its members and activities.
Always a friendly and welcoming presence in the bar he gradually stood back as he began to suffer the effects of Alzheimer’s disease before finally passing away in 2017.
Alzheimer’s is a horrible disease which affects more and more people as life expectancy increases. These days it is increasingly rare that a family doesn’t know of a friend, neighbour, parent or grandparent that has suffered from it.
On a positive note though there are several scientific and medical research programmes that are close to easing the symptoms if not finding a cure but with little government funding they rely heavily on the work of the Alzheimer’s charities.
To support their work, and to say thanks to Geoff, the club will be running a Quiz Night on July 19th with the questions being asked by the quiz team so that they can’t win.
We very much hope that every section will enter a team as will the Hewes Family and many of his friends from over the years.
The cost will be £15 a head of which £10 will go to the Alzheimer’s Research UK and £5 will pay for some of Jackie’s slap up food.
The bar will of course be open and there will be prizes you can drink for the winning team.
Please contact Amanda Kunicki on 07786 062999, or pay Jackie at the bar to book your place.
