We had 53 diners at our annual Christmas Lunch at the Yarrow Hotel, Broadstairs on Saturday 8th December.
We had an excellent meal, beautifully served by the staff of the hotel, who as ever were excellent.
During the course of the lunch Katy Styles MNDA Trustee awarded a 25 year award to Hazel Izzard (Watts) for her service to MNDA in East Kent over the past quarter century. Hazel has retired from our group and we gave her a beautiful bouquet in recognition of the incredible work she has done to support people living with MND in East Kent.
As in previous years we had a superb raffle, with prizes being bought along by many diners and we had lots of fun drawing the raffle and the children present certainly had fun collecting various prizes.
We would like to thank the Yarrow Hotel and their wonderful staff, all raffle donors and everyone who attended for making it such a splendid lunch.
We wish everyone a wonderful Christmas and a good 2019.
