Fun Day Follows Fundraiser – Bloodwise Winchester set to benefit from fun day at the University.

Here’s news of an event for a cause very close to at least three of the staff at the newspaper. A group of Winchester University students and the Bloodwise Winchester Fundraising group are organising a Family Fun Day on Saturday 3rd March 10am-4pm in Winchester University Sports Hall, Sparkford Road, Winchester, SO22 4NR.

All proceeds will go to Bloodwise, with mini sports games, drinks and cakes, stalls and a raffle all on offer. Admission and parking are free.

Bloodwise Winchester Fundraising group held two other fundraising events recently. The first was their annual Quiz Night. The excellent quiz master was Duncan McLeish, ably assisted by Natalie McLeish and Belinda Newton.


14 imaginatively-named teams took part and their brains were given a boost by a ploughman’s supper served during the interval. A tie between two teams meant that the quiz culminated in a tie-break that was won by ‘Quiz Park Rangers’. The evening was much enjoyed by the participants and raised £983.

The second event was a collection at Aldi in Winchester that raised £454. The proceeds will go towards the valuable work of Bloodwise in funding blood cancer research and offering support to patients plus their families and friends.
