Bringing People Together
I'm Bill Rosborough and I'm the Secretary of the Hampton Social Club which is opposite the Booking Office at Hampton Railway Station.
On the last Friday of each month the Club hosts a Charity Quiz which is open to members and non members alike. We get a good turn-out and as well as everybody having an enjoyable evening we also raise money for local charities, to date in excess of £4500.
This months quiz proceeds, which will be held on Friday 28th March 2014, will go to supporting Hampton People's Network. Quite a few people who use this site already come along to the quiz, but don't worry if you haven't been before - it's a friendly easy going environment. The quiz starts about 8.15pm and lasts for a couple of hours.
There is a free buffet and a raffle, if you've got a bottle of something in the back of a cupboard or unwanted an Christmas present then bring them along for the raffle prizes, who knows you could end up with that which you wanted rid of!
The teams are 4/5 people and the entry per team is £5.
Anyway, do come along if you can, have some fun and raise a bit of money for the Hampton People's Network.
As promised, the quiz took place on Friday and it raised £157 for this site. It was a fun evening and I am really grateful to Bill and to everyone at Hampton Social Club. It's a place I have seen and walked past hundreds of times, so it is nice to have finally found out what it is like. It's a very relaxed private members' club, but their monthly quiz night on the last Friday of the month is open to everyone and a good bit of fun. So do think about giving it a go. If you are interested in finding out more about the club, then message Bill and I am sure he will be more than happy to talk to you about it. Anyway, the support of Hampton Social Club puts us in an excellent financial position, so when we discuss the way forward at the meeting on Sunday April 27, we have scope to think about advertising the site more or doing new things. Many thanks, Bill, it's great to have your support (even if the team we were both in somehow did not come top in the quiz!).
