Vote for us!

FACE is going to be entered into November’s Resident’s Journal Charity competition – neighbours will have the chance to vote for several local charities and the winners will each receive a donation of £500!
As we are raising money for 3 different local causes we’re hoping to get lots of votes – it will be wonderful if we can give The Furzedown Project the defibrillator they wanted as a Christmas present this December!

Sadiq Khan opened the event, 

Our hardworking local MP has been amazingly supportive of our work, giving up his time and donating prizes for our raffle. His opening speech was great – he apoligised for not being Arthur Smith! He knew Gareth and was moved by him and his family and their struggle with MND.

Sadiq also picked the winning ticket for a Heyland & Whittle gift hamper.

Our Heads & Tails game was very popular – probably because of the great prize – a Martini evening at The Little Bar worth up to £150

The quiz itself was challenging and fun with 10 rounds of very different questions, from identifying pasta and rice to film stills and current affairs… something for everyone!

There were teams from St George’s hospital as well as the South London MND Association and even a  team of Graveney six formers!

FACE 2013 Quiz Night a great success!

Furzedown came out in force and the event was packed. The night began with a few words from Jane, whose daughter had been treated for cancer in St George’s when she was a teenager and who also spoke about Gareth who inspired our fundraising efforts. The Quiz was opened by Sadiq Khan MP who gave a funny and moving speech and then picked the happy winner of our Heyland & Whittle gift hamper worth almost £150.

Before the quiz started we held a Heads & Tails game to win a Martini Cocktail evening at The Little Bar in Tooting, which proved very popular and raised well over £200.

There were teams from MNDA, St George’s Hospital, Graveney and lots of friends and neighbours of all ages and even a dog made a guest appearance. Graham Loveland was our expert Quizmaster who took us through 10 fun and challenging rounds, beginning with having to identify different pastas and rice! At the end of the evening the Quiz champions were team Cherry Garcia – well done to them!

There was a delicious hearty meal half way through the quiz, with hot chilli con carne and jacket potatoes followed by choices of chocolate and cream cakes. The evening ended with the raffle draw to win lots of great prizes and everyone agreed it was a great evening and are already starting to talk about next year!

 

Get your thinking caps on – Quiz night on Saturday!

We’re all getting ready for the quiz night this Saturday at 7pm in Graveney School upper hall, we’ve sold over 160 tickets so far and have some great brain-teasers and prizes for the night.

Heyland & Whittle have given us a magnificent gift hamper of their handmade goodies (worth apx £150 pictured) which will be the special prize on the night and everyone who comes will have a chance of winning it!
