Local Quiz Night Raises Over £2,500

Posted 10 June 2019
We recently held our bi-annual quiz night which managed to raise an incredible amount for our chosen charity, Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

Local Quiz Night Raises Over £2,500

Our seventeenth quiz fundraiser was held in Kesgrave on Sunday 9th June 2019. Presented by BBC radio presenter Stephanie Mackentyre, the evening was supported by 200 guests who enjoyed 9 rounds of tough trivia, with five teams taking home cash prizes. Tickets for the quiz were completely sold out, which further demonstrated the event’s popularity.

Thanks to generous support from local businesses, ticket sales and a bumper raffle, £1,580.47 was raised on the night. This was then boosted with an extra £1,000 as a fund-match from the team at Barclays in Ipswich, taking the total to £2,580.47.

This 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”.

The Hearing Care Centre’s next initiative is their Summer Pudding Club, an all you can eat dessert lovers paradise, which is currently in the process of being organised. Make sure to keep up with all the latest here, or register your interest by e-mailing marketing@hearingcarecentre.co.uk.
