Charity Quiz Night Raises Over £2,600

Posted 26 November 2018 by Melanie Ashton
On Sunday 25th November we held our sixteenth quiz fundraiser, one of our final events in an effort to meet our £20k target for Hearing Dogs For Deaf People.

Charity Quiz Night Raises Over £2,600

Presented by local entrepreneur Steve Flory, the evening was supported by 200 guests who enjoyed 9 rounds of tough trivia, with five teams taking home cash prizes. The event sold out in less than a week which just goes to show its popularity!

Thanks to generous support from local businesses, ticket sales and a bumper raffle, over £1,600 was raised on the night. This was then boosted with an extra £1,000 from the team at Barclays in Ipswich, taking the total to over £2,600.

A huge thank you is also due to the many generous local businesses that sponsored this event:

The event was all in aid of Hearing Dogs For Deaf People, a charity close to the hearts of The Hearing Care Centre. Karen Finch, Managing Director and founder of The Hearing Care Centre, expressed: “Hearing Dogs give many deaf people confidence, independence and companionship. I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who helped us support this great charity”.

She also commented, “We are exceptionally grateful to have received an extra £1,000 towards our final total from the kind team at Barclays. This brings us extremely close to our goal.”
