Branch News - 2010

Wednesday 8th December 2010 - Christmas Skittles

As has been our custom, we spent the last meeting of the year at the Royal Oak in Cossington for our end of year bash. The cheeses were behaving at their cantankerous best so any contact with the floor produced more variations than Shane Warne at his most mischievous! Projecting the cheeses took many forms, from the gentle, bobbling, 'round the houses' to the ballistic missile; the results were impossible to predict which all added to the hilarity of the occasion. As always there was plenty of food - and plenty of laughs!

Wednesday 10th November 2010 - Rainbows Talk

Ivan Brookes, one of Rainbows ambassadors, came to give an enlightening and uplifting talk about the charity we have been collecting for. The facilities they provide are most impressive and when we were told of the costs involved and that it has no government funding, we felt really quite humbled by our, by comparison, meagre contribution. Ivan reassured us, however, just how important each contribution is, whatever the size. His colleague, Sally, was on hand to sell Christmas cards and the like on behalf of the charity.

Mike has received a letter from Rainbows which says:

On behalf of Rainbows Hospice for Children and Young People I would like to express a BIG thank you for your clubs recent and very generous donation raised from a charity auction and raffle. The support from your MMOC members is very much appreciated and will make a real difference to the lives of the children and families”.
