Murder Mystery Evening

On 15th October, a very enjoyable and light-hearted evening of “murder mystery” took part in Horsham when Sue Sheppard organised for the Goring Region Occasional Players Ensemble to present their play “Murder in the Music”.  An audience of over 80 people from near and far, including several people who had no connection with MND but who had seen the local adverts, were duly entertained by the 10-strong members of GROPE.

During the intervals a delicious Fish and Chip supper was served and raffle tickets were sold which boosted the final total to just under £840.00.  A further £500 has  been donated by the Horsham Freemasons for the event.
