Shotley Stroke Unit's charity quiz night
Recent Trivia Quiz Evening
11 September 2014

On Friday, 28th March 2014 Shotley Stroke Unit held a Trivia Quiz Evening at Foxhall Community Centre to raise funds for a shower chair. The event was led by Marie Horne (our ward clerk) with the help from colleagues and friends. It was well attended with over 130 people (23 teams) putting on their thinking caps - and a great time was had by all.

We would like to thank everyone who attended, and the sponsors of the draw prizes. Thanks also go to Kathy Scott and her husband for donating their time as question masters.

The evening raised a spectacular £1,300. Money was raised from a raffle, and from kind donations made to give the sunflower table decorations a home. The sunflowers were specially made by Marie and raised £103.

Legal and General very generously donated £500, for which the Stroke Unit would like to offer its sincere gratitude. The donation will help enormously in our aim to purchase a special shower chair. This new chair will allow patients to sit safely while having a shower, giving them an increased sense of independence.

We would also like to thank the following people who kindly donated gifts for our raffle:

Coe’s £25 Voucher Sunflower
Pin High Golf Shop £30 Voucher
Tesco £30 Voucher
Little Luxuries, Hair and Beauty

Our heartfelt thanks go out to everybody who supported this tremendous evening.
