£1,230 raised for Trafford South Foodbank

We were delighted to be able to send an amazing £1,230 to Trafford South Foodbank which was raised during December by our members, their families and friends. The fundraising effort replaced our usual Christmas Raffle and enabled the Society to give something to the community during an exceptionally difficult time for many people.

Trafford South Foodbank is part of The Trussell Trust.

County RA Quiz: Runners-up

For the first time since 2014, we returned from the Cheshire RA Quiz with a trophy! It’s the trophy for 2nd place, but it still counts.

The hastily thrown-together team of Mike Ransome, Tom O’Brien and Stephen Brown dipped into some random trivia knowledge to triumph over everyone except one of the Stockport teams, who were worthy winners … again!

Time to start revising for 2020 …
