Charity Quiz and Band Night

In June 2014 I am climbing Ben Nevis at Night to raise money for the Alzheimer's Society (for more information see http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/ and http://www.alzheimers.org.uk/site/scripts/documents_info.php?documentID=1911). 

The minimum i need to raise is £380, but i want to raise more. So i thought, why not put a band and quiz night on. I have managed to secure a venue with bar on site and have great band lined up (Whiteroom - that have a reputation for being fantastic) and all i need now is the people. 

I am asking for a minimum of £15.00 per person, to be purchased prior the event, ticket includes buffet, band and quiz. There will also be a raffle. To buy tickets you can either see me at The Barn on the 14th February 2014 or 14th March 2014 or email me directly using the meet up site.

Closing date for ticket purchases is 1st April 2014.

    Well done Donna for doing that, sadly my Nan passed away from Alzheimer's a few years ago so a great cause to support!

    I would like to thank everyone again for supporting this event. I did the climb last night, starting at 10pm and finishing at 6am this morning. With you support we have managed to raise to date just over £1000.

    Thank you to everyone for making my event such a great event. A special thanks to people who donated raffle prices. I would like to confirm that raise in excess of £751 for the Alzheimers Society. One donation pot has yet to be counted as i am hoping to make a bit more at work tomorrow with the remaining cakes, biscuits and crisps.

    Hi Donna, Pat and I have both tried getting hold of you, but haven't managed to yet. Pat paid Roger for her ticket at the February Curry Night, but we haven't seen you yet to collect it. Can you confirm you do still have it and Pat has a space please. Also, if anyone can't make it, I would love to buy another ticket - message me if you have one spare to sell.

    • Jane

      Thanks for getting back to me Donna. Glad you have Pat's ticket safe. Do let me know if anyone can't make it and there is a spare ticket I can buy. Looking forward to Saturday now - looks like being a great night!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
