Night at the Museum – AGM and Quiz

event report

Thank you to all those who attended our AGM and Quiz night in early February this year. 

We were lucky enough to have the Manchester Museum provide a lovely space for us and raised over £100 for the local group ‘On Top of the World‘ who provide a warm space for people in Hulme. 

The AGM provided an overview of our campaigning in 2023 and a good discussion was had over the finance, membership and media presentations! You can view the slides from the meeting (pdf).

Manchester FoE AGM and Quiz AGM

Voting in of Officers 

Our officers voted in for this year are : 

  • Amy Berrisford and Cat Thomson – coordinators 
  • Ali Abbas – Treasurer 
  • Seb Dot – Membership officer 
  • Graeme Sherriff – Website officer 
  • Pete Abel- Media Officer 

As a reminder – we are always happy to have people join the group as an officer at anytime of the year ! You can see more detail on the different roles and/ or get in touch to discuss further:

We are particularly keen to recruit a membership officer (as although Seb has offered to continue as our membership officer – he has recently moved out of Manchester and ideally would handover this job to someone else!) and coordinator.

Thanks Ali!​​

To complete our AGM we spent some time embarrassing and praising Ali Abbas in equal measure as we thanked him for his 20+ years of campaigning with Manchester FOE! – see picture! 

Quiz and fundraiser 

The second half of the evening was dedicated to our Quiz hosted by the fab Misty Phil. Despite technical challenges on the music round – it was a close race with the winning team doing so by half a point! Well done to the G, S and Z team.

During the break we heard from Fuel Poverty Action​ on their upcoming action and also the United for Warm Homes​ work. 

One of the aims of the evening was to raise some money for a local group helping people keep warm this winter. We raised over £100 for ‘On top of the World‘. If you missed the chance to make a donation on the evening – please get in touch and we can share their details with you. 

And finally a special thank you to Chloe and Phil for helping make the evening such a success! Did we mention the delicious homemade biscuits?! Definitely a hit!
