POSTPONED - The Mighty Quiz Networking Night in aid of Alzheimer's Research UK
27 April 2017 19:00
The Refectory Cafe, Norwich Cathedral
At 7pm, we will kick off with an hour of networking for local businesses, a great opportunity to chat, make contacts and expand your networks.
From 8pm, we will then sit down to take part in Alzheimer's Research UK's Mighty Quiz raising funds for the UK's leading dementia research charity. With spaghetti towers, plank-offs and foil sculptures, The Mighty Quiz is far from your average quiz - combining general knowledge rounds with physical challenges, creating a level playing field for those who struggle to tackle trivia. We hope you are excited as we are!
Alzheimer's Research UK powers world class studies that give us the best chance of beating dementia sooner. Its scientists' groundbreaking work focuses on prevention, treatment and cure. In the UK more than 850,000 people are currently living with dementia. Worldwide the figure stands at more than 44 million. While it's true that the majority of people with dementia are over 65, the condition is not a normal part of getting older. Nor is the condition only linked with later life; in the UK over 40,000 people under 65 have dementia. In 2016, Alzheimer's Research UK began working in Norwich at the UEA. We are supporting Professor Chris Fox and his team who are studying the effect of hip fractures on the rate of decline in people with dementia. This pioneering project will look at whether people with dementia who experience a hip fracture have faster decline in memory and thinking over time than those who haven't had a hip fracture, and investigate the factors behind any link. None of our pioneering research could take place without the amazing efforts and dedication of our supporters.
Tickets cost £5 per person to be paid on the evening. You can have a team of between 2 and 6 and you can bring friends and family along too, they are welcome to arrive from 7.45pm for the start of the Mighty Quiz if they don't wish to take part in the networking hour beforehand.
Nibbles will be included and there will be a bar available on the night serving alcoholic, soft and hot drinks.
We strongly recommend reserving a table - to do so all you need to do is e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org your name, e-mail address, company and number of people you would like to book a table for. If you have more than 6 people interested, you are welcome to split into teams of 2 upwards!
We are so excited about The Mighty Quiz Networking Night and can't wait for you to join us!
