Date:  11 October

Time: 7.30 pm
Venue: The Weatherley Centre, Biggleswade

Quiz Night in Aid of Macmillan Cancer Support
Last year's winners

A major project is planned in our area. The oversubscribed facilities at the Lister Hospital in Stevenage limit the service that can be provided to those affected by cancer. The existing unit will be completely redesigned and rebuilt to give the staff a chance to meet the challenges of maintaining a complex and high quality service, now and for the future.

The new centre will allow 18 patients to receive chemotherapy treatment at the same time, doubling the amount of space currently available to the 220 patients treated at the Lister each week. It will provide two restful and soothing gardens for people with cancer and their families and provide areas where people can discuss sensitive information about their diagnosis and treatment with staff and access the excellent Macmillan Information and Support and Welfare Benefits advisors.

Biggleswade has an active local fundraising group that has a reputation for organising good value fun events whilst raising much needed funds for a good cause. This gives you a great opportunity to contribute to much needed projects such as this whilst enjoying great local events.

On Friday, October 11 there is a quiz night plus a meal, comprising hot food, dessert & a fresh fruit platter. This takes place at the Weatherly Centre in Biggleswade starting at 7.30pm.

The ticket price is £11 per person and there is a maximum of 8 per team.

All profits will go to support Macmillan.

All welcome but advance booking is essential.

To purchase tickets please contact Jonathan on 01767 312368. 
These quizzes are always very popular and the last one was a sell out so people were turned away. The venue is bigger this time but may still sell out so book now.

Looking ahead there is a Christmas Fair On Saturday, November 23 at St Andrew's Church. Stalls are available for £10 a stall in aid of Macmillan Cancer Research

For more information on any of the above or to get involved and join the fundraising volunteers please contact Jonathan on 01767 312368.
