Families to benefit from charity quiz

Quiz goers are being encouraged to dust off their best team names as a new charity quiz is being held in aid of families in Leigh Park.

Being organised by Southern Co-op’s Funeralcare in Leigh Park, colleagues are gearing up for the special night which will stimulate people’s brain cells.

All money raised will be donated to Park Families, in Leigh Park, which provides childcare and education, respite for families and training for individuals and companies.

Throughout the year the charity offers resources for children, free or subsidised access to a range of early education, support services, training, community services and venue access, and helps individuals and families in need.

Rachel Cast, Funeral Co-ordinator at Southern Co-op’s Funeralcare in Leigh Park, said: “Park Families is our current Charity Partner which is part of Southern Co-op’s community engagement programme ‘Love Your Neighbourhood’.

“It is incredibly important in our local area as it is right in the centre of the community and helps children of different ages and abilities. It is a charity that a lot of us can relate to.

“So we are really hoping our first ever charity quiz night will be a success. There will be nibbles provided and a bar for people wanting to quench their thirst. If all goes well, who knows, this might be the first of many!”

The charity quiz night is being held on Friday 12 October at 7.30pm in Leigh Park Working Man’s Club, 439 Dunsbury Way.

Places can be booked via Southern Co-op’s Funeralcare in Leigh Park, at 224 Dunsbury Way, for £10 per team with six people per team.
