Annual Quiz- 7 March 2019

We will be holding our annual Quiz Night on 7 March 2019 at the Whittington Hospital. Proceeds from the quiz will be equally split and donated to the Whittington’s Peadiatric Ward (registered charity 1056452) and IMECE Women’s Centre (registered charity 1101882). There will be a prize for the winning team and a grand raffle. Teams can consist of four to eight players at £20 per head (meal included). We will also have a bar with wines, beers, and soft drinks on sale. 

Space is limited, so please contact Richard Coleman (email: richard_e_coleman [at] hotmail.com) to reserve your table as soon as possible! Payment can be made by bank transfer or cheque.  

The quiz will be in the Whittington Hospital Staff Dining Room. When booking your table, please let Richard Coleman if you would like any vegetarian meals instead of fish and chips as alternative meals will only be available if pre-ordered.

We plan to start the questions at 7:30pm but it is useful to arrive soon after 7pm to have the best chance to complete the table round. On the evening of the quiz please use the main entrance to The Whittington on Magdela Avenue, just off Highgate Hill (Archway is the closest tube station). Click here for a map of the Whittington Hospital. The Staff Dining Room is on the first floor of the hospital.

We hope you can join us for a fun evening in aid of very deserving charities! 2019 Quiz Flyer.jpg

Walk for Shelter Box- September 2018

In late September 2018 club members and supporters walked 10km across north London to raise funds for ShelterBox.

ShelterBox is a charity that hand-delivers aid to families devastated by conflict or natural disaster, to give them safe shelter and the tools to rebuild communities. When natural disasters and conflicts occur, the ShelterBox operations team make careful assessments to ensure that ShelterBox aid is right for the situation. They consider the type of disaster and the level of damage, as well as the needs of the community and their ability to recover, before selecting the right type of support. ShelterBox are then able to quickly transport items from their positioned hubs around the world to exactly where it is needed.

We successfully raised£590, which is the average cost of a ShelterBox.

Many thanks to all of our supporters and generous donors who helped make this possible!

DISTRICT 1130 CONFERENCE 2017

Version 2
Islington, Highgate and Muswell Hill Rotarians at District Conference 2017

Several of our club members have recently returned from attending District 1130 Conference. This year’s conference was held between October 20 and 22 in Stratford-upon-Avon. Highlights of the weekend included making new connections with members of other clubs, catching up with Rotarians friends, and hearing about the many interesting projects being done in the UK and overseas by clubs in District 1130. We look forward to continued fellowship with other Rotarians across London throughout the next Rotary year and beyond.

In addition to attending conference sessions, workshops, and meals club members had the opportunity to explore Stratford-upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare.
