2016-17 Chair's Messenger Article Jun '17



The MTSG Charity Quiz was held on Thursday 11 May in Artisan in aid of one of our chosen

charities for this year, Forever Manchester, raising approximately £250 for the charity.

Attendees were welcomed with drinks tokens and a buffet, in addition to a duo of brothers

who acted as our quiz masters for the evening. We would like to say a massive thank you to

all those that attended and assisted in raising money for Forever Manchester.

Please keep an eye on your email inboxes and our social media platforms for details of the

MTSG election process and the MTSG election social, which is due to be held in late July.



The FELT-ers were treated to a rum trail around Manchester’s infamous Northern Quarter on

Thursday 18 May, kindly sponsored by Sacco Mann. The rum trail provided all attendees with

6 rum cocktails in 6 different bars and plenty of food to keep them going along the way.

Bongos Bingo is the word on all FELT-ers lips as we anxiously await new dates to be released

for the crazy bingo event at Albert Hall. This is to be sponsored by Think Legal and more
