    How about this for a raffle prize?

On a wonderfully sunny autumnal day, Headstart got together for our

penultimate event of 2016 in Queen Victoria Hospital. It was quite hard

to believe it was the end of October as it was so mild and warm.

This was Wendy's choice from a table full of delectable prizes in

our usual rather boisterous raffle. You might just see a rather

delicious looking box of chocolates over her right shoulder,

yet another fab prize.

Wendy is one of those amazing people who gives up her free time

as a Macmillan volunteer in the Macmillan Centre in the Queen Vic.

As per usual we had a topical quiz, quite easy really as all you

had to choose was, is it True or is it False, couldn't be easier.

 

Find out more about this and other news on our events page.
