We've been busy raising funds for ASHA!

Take a look to see what we have been up to recently...

 

 

13th November: Curry Night @ Gervesie, Monflanquin

 

In a lovely atmosphere 57 members and supporters sat down and enjoyed a wide variety of delicious curries and side dishes cooked and served by Maria and her team. This was followed by a wonderful selection of puddings made by the ASHA ladies. During the evening members were invited to take part in a picture quiz which was great fun. A very big thank you to all involved, both helpers and supporters, who made the evening so successful. A very special thank you to Charlotte and Nigel for hosting the evening in a quite lovely venue.

A truly fantastic profit of €1054 was raised.

 

 

26th October: Quiz Night at the Monte Cristo, Villereal

 

60 quizzers met at the Monte Cristo to enjoy a great supper and excellent quiz set by John Kearsey.

As always it was a very enjoyable evening.

The questions set by John enabled everyone to achieve a good score, but only the very best were able to answer nearly all of the questions.

After the 4 question papers there were 2 teams in first place therefore a tie-break question was needed to decide the winners: “How many floors are there in the Shard”.

The evening raised an excellent amount of 521€15.

A very big thankyou to John and Kathy for organising the evening.

A truly wonderful evening. This was the first time that ASHA had promoted the Leeds University Big Band Annual Easter Wednesday concert. The extremely talented musicians and singers gave us a fantastic concert. The audience of over 200 really appreciated the enthusiasm of the musicians and all had their feet tapping to the music. The Salle had been decorated by the ASHA ladies with tea lights and greenery on the tables, and with soft lighting a lovely ambience was created.
