Last month we had the pleasure of working with the Newmarket fundraising team for the MS Society on a hugely successful fundraising evening at Tattersalls, Park Paddocks.

The evening was themed around the popular TV show “A Question of Sport” with the amazing setting of the Tattersalls Sale Ring the venue for our two competing teams.    Clare Balding hosted the event as Quiz Master and the two teams were captained by champion jockey Frankie Dettori and racehorse trainer William Haggas.  Team members included former England cricketer Nick Knight; TV presenter and racing commentator Nick Luck; local racehorse trainer David Simcock; former England Rugby Union player Simon Shaw, MBE;  international dressage trainer Dane Rawlins; and Mick Quinn former professional footballer, now a local trainer and radio personality.

After the highly entertaining quiz, guests then made their way to the dining room for a 3-course meal, catered for by the Crown Catering Cambridge team!

After dinner entertainment was provided by Sir Mark Prescott and the evening concluded with an Auction which really got the bidders going.

A staggering sum of £17,000 was raised for the MS Society and the Cambridge Centre for Myelin Repair where researchers in Cambridge are leading the way in developing treatments that promote myelin repair for people with MS.

It was wonderful to be involved in such an amazing evening and a huge congratulations goes out to everyone involved in making it such a incredible success.
