JCI Southampton hosted their annual quiz on 3rd September at Orange Rooms. This year it was to raise money for our charity of the year: Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity.

This year I offered to read the questions for the evening along with James Lambert, JCI Southampton's Finance Director. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening and had a lot of fun. This was the first time I had hosted a JCI event and everyone was extremely helpful in making sure everything went smoothly.

All particpants did extremely well but it was E3 Consulting who took home first prize! Congratulations!

We also managed to raise over £250 for our charity of the year and would like to thank you everyone who took part and donated!

If you would like to join us for another event to help raise vital funds for Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity, join us for our annual gala on 10th October. Tickets can be booked here.

JCI Southampton New Members Evening

By: Christina Nokleby on March 5th 2015.

On Thursday 26th February JCI met with current, past and potential new members at Orange Rooms in Bedford Place, Southampton. The turn out was great, with over 40 entrepreneurs and professionals coming together to enjoy free canapés and drinks on offer.

The New Members evening is a yearly event for young professionals and entrepreneurs within the city, and aims to teach people about the benefits correlated with joining JCI. It is also a fantastic networking opportunity and to meet likeminded people in the area.

Max Thompson, the current JCI Southampton president, briefly touched upon some of the activities and goals of this professional body. These include the opportunity to broaden networks of contacts, becoming involved in community projects, enhancing skills and being able to partake in valuable training courses.

Ruth Andrew, our Fundraising Director, spoke about our chosen charity of the year, Countess Mountbatten Hospice Charity. This is a special organisation where people with life limiting illnesses, both in the Hospice and our community, are cared for by a team that delivers ‘over and above’. There will be further events and socials in the year where we will give a certain percentage from the ticket prices to the Hospice. We have also recently set up a JCI Just Giving page and welcome any donations [insert link]. 

The turnout was fantastic, with lots of interesting people to meet and stories to hear. JCI welcomes people from all types of backgrounds, cultures and countries and other JCI members from all over the world.
