Each year teams put forward by Members of the Association compete in an amusing, and sometimes very competitive (!) Quiz Night which is held at Christie’s. It is always a very popular event. This year the winners were Gordon Dadds Solicitors. The event raised funds for the Medical Detection Dogs charity.

Glazier Design and The Isle of Man Post Office have released a special book to mark Stephen Hawking‘s 75th birthday. Each of the 100 numbered copies is signed by Eddie Redmayne, who played the professor in the film The Theory of Everything.
The book is a special edition of Albert Einstein to Stephen Hawking, 100 Years of General Relativity, the book that accompanied the General Relativity stamp issue from the Isle of Man Post Office. It contains two full sets of the stamps, which feature Einstein, Hawking and illustrations of Hawking’s work.
The books are £250 each and are available at www.iompost.com/hawking – a large proportion of the proceeds will go to the Stephen Hawking Foundation to further the study of Cosmology and Motor Neuron Disease, particularly ALS.
Glazier Design created the Stephen Hawking Foundation branding, and as they design stamps for IOM PO, put the two clients together to produce the Gravitational Theory issue, working with Professors Hawking and Perry and Astrophysicist Sasha Haco.
Ben Glazier, who has been a Council member of the Association for many years, said “This is perhaps the proudest moment in our eighteen years. To work with one of the greatest minds of all time, on a project that will benefit people for years to come, is truly an honour; and as a childhood stamp collector, I don’t think I ever expected to be listed in Stanley Gibbons“.
