Megan Nee, consultant at Futureboard and organiser of the quiz, said: “We were delighted at how the quiz turned out last night. We had so much fun we’re thinking of making it a yearly event!”

She added: “It was great to see so many of our friends and family come along to support the Motor Neurone Disease Association. It’s a cause that is very close to our hearts so we’re glad that people dug deep into their pockets to help.”

According to MNDA, Motor Neurone Disease (MND) is a progressive disease that attacks the motor neurones, or nerves, in the brain and spinal cord. This means messages gradually stop reaching muscles. MND can affect how you walk, talk, eat, drink and breathe.

Although there is currently no cure for MND, symptoms can be managed to help you achieve the best possible quality of life. You can donate to MNDA through Futureboard’s JustGiving page here.
