‘Identify the Toys’ Fundraising Quiz

P. Bowskill was the winner of the ‘Toys Quiz’, devilishly compiled by Val Austen. Many thanks to Val for producing another excellent mind challenge!

Thank you also to all who took part. £96 was raised – and hopefully a lot of fun achieved as participants struggled to unravel the cryptic, word-play or general knowledge clues.

Fish and Chip Supper Quiz 2015

On the evening of Saturday 17th January 2015, Bereavement Care held its (now annual) Fish and Chip Supper Quiz.

The format was the same, the venue the Victoria Hall, Sheepcote Road, Harrow and the quiz master Selwyn Foreman and his team of helpers. Around 120 people attended the quiz – the tickets had been a sell out when they had gone on sale in November.

The photo shows the illustrated names of each of the twelve tables that were competing in the Quiz- all were named after different names of potato,ranging from Red King to King Edward. The fish and chips this year were supplied by Barracuda in Harrow and we thank Hoopers Carpets and Andrew Pearce Estate Agents for their sponsorship as well as all those who kindly supplied the raffle prizes. All gave generously to the raffle which raised £426.

The nine rounds of questions ranged from Who, What and When and the Dingbats Marathon on the tables had everyone puzzling. Table J, the proudly named Pentland Javelin, came top in the end.

It was, like last year, a great evening much enjoyed by all those who came. Our thanks to all for the support – the event will have raised around £2,000 for Bereavement Care and is a very welcome addition to our funds.

Particular acknowledgement must be made to Bobbi Riesel and Jack Lynes who organise this yearly event and make it such a success for all concerned and to Val Austen who painted our little Potato friends and orchestrates the decorations.

Trolley Dash 2014

“Over October and November many £1 tickets were sold in aid of Bereavement Care and a final push was made in the last week of November when volunteers manned the stall in the foyer at Waitrose, Kings End, Ruislip to sell the raffle tickets to customers at the store.

Over 3,000 tickets were sold in all thanks to all the helpers. The draw for the winning ticket was on November 30th and the winner was Mrs Sue Soloway of Ruislip.

She arrived at 4pm on Sunday 7th December for the Dash itself. In attendance was the Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor Catherine Dann and her Mayoress.

Sue dashed round the store putting in smoked salmon, chocolates, biscuits, and all sorts of other good things for this festive season. Our very good thanks to Waitrose for allowing us the foyer for a week to sell the tickets and for clearing the store on the Sunday to enable the Dash to take place.

This is a major fund raising event for us and one that brings a bit of seasonal cheer. In addition, it enables us to distribute any number of leaflets to people in Hillingdon, many of whom have been unaware of us.

Many many thanks to all who helped

Ruth McNeil”
