2017-18 Chair's Messenger Article Dec '17



A great night was had by all on 9th November when MTSG members met for the charity bowling night at Bog Bowl. The sell out-event, which was kindly sponsored by Michael Page Legal, raised hundreds of pounds for one of the MTSG’s charities of the year, JDRF, which is a charity committed to creating a world without type 1 diabetes. The fun-filled evening treated attendees to food, drink and (of course!) bowling whilst getting the chance to meet new people and help a very worthwhile cause. A charity raffle was also held on the evening with some amazing prizes won.

A special thanks to our Charity Directors Heena Kapadi and Karlis Rullis for all their hard work in organising the event.

Keep an eye out for details of our next charity event, which is to be held on Thursday 7th December at Kiehl's Boutique, located on King Street. Tickets will be just £4.00, and on the evening attendees will be able to enjoy a number of treats including canapes from Grand Pacific, hair and make-up tips from Blow Ltd, a showcase of Stella & Dot’s jewellery, hand and arm massages from Kiehls, healthy skin checks from Kiehls, product offers and some fantastic raffle prizes. An event not to be missed!


November saw the return of the MTSG FELT wine tasting event, which again was a huge success. Kindly sponsored by our friends at BCL Legal, the event was a perfect excuse for FELT members to socialise and network whilst spending the evening welcoming in the festive season with some delicious wine and food.

FELT Director Amanda Cheung said following the event "It was great to see familiar faces and new ones at this event. Everyone enjoyed the wine and food - it was the perfect way to welcome the festive season and for FELT members to get to know each other!"

MTSG Winter Ball

The MTSG held their annual ‘Winter Wonderland’ ball on 30 November at the Museum of Science and Industry. Attendees were treated to a spectacular evening, where fairy lights from the Christmas tree sparkled amongst historical exhibits from the world of science and engineering – a truly stunning backdrop. Hosted by Capital FM’s James Hall, the evening included a drinks reception, 3 course meal, hours of dancing and even personalised cupcakes. Attendees won some fantastic prizes during the charity raffle, successfully raising funds for our sponsored charities and continued the celebrations into the night at the official after party which was held at Guilty By Associated in the Northern Quarter.

I would like to say a massive thank you to the MTSG Ball Directors, Charlotte Tyrer, Nicole Rourke and Beth Ashton, who put hours of work into making the event such a huge success. A special thanks also to the event sponsors, Aurelius, who were hugely involved with the planning of the event alongside Charlotte, Nicole and Beth – thank you for your continuing support of the MTSG.

Wishes from the MTSG Committee

On behalf of myself and the entire MTSG committee, I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. See you in 2018!
