MS Society South Northumberland branch

The branch has held it’s annual Quiz Night. It was Morpeth’s turn to host the event and a tightly fought contest was expected with returning champions Alnwick.

Quiz Master Stephen Proom presided over five rounds of (occasionally baffling) questions, covering such topics as Renaissance painters, 21st century politics and TV talent shows.

The Alnwick team performed well in the picture round, identifying several UK cities, but Morpeth’s general knowledge was enough for them to win and take home the coveted ‘Pringle Challenge Cup’.

After the quiz, members were ready to enjoy a well-deserved buffet supper. This was followed by a prize raffle.

The branch offers a confidential ear and support from trained volunteers, information from the national MS society, contacts for further advice, grants to make home adaptations or provide equipment, and friendly social events. For further information, telephone Jackie on 07749 384598.
