One of the biggest quiz events in the region has raised an amazing amount of money for charity, after their latest event was hailed a triumph by organisers.
Local hearing care specialists The Hearing Care Centre held their 11th Charity Quiz Night, hosted by BBC Radio Suffolk presenter Lesley Dolphin, and raised £1,858.96 on the night.
The event which was held at Greshams Social Club in Ipswich, was organised to help raise money for the company’s £10,000 puppy sponsorship appeal for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
On the night more than 260 people attended, which saw guests enjoy nine rounds of tough trivia and spirited rivalry, with five teams taking home cash prizes.
The Hearing Care Centre, which looks after peoples’ hearing across East Anglia, took the total amount of money they’ve raised at their now famous quiz nights to over £16,650.
Karen Finch, Managing Director of The Hearing Care Centre, said, “I want to give a huge thank you to everyone who supported us on the night; attendees, sponsors and helpers.”
“I would like to apologise to those people who we had to disappoint due to a lack of space, but my advice would be to book now for our next event in December!”.
The company also has a number of other fundraisers lined up in partnership with Adnams. Across the summer The Hearing Care Centre is organising a series of tasting experiences which will involve trying a bit of everything from the Adnams range with a selection of nibbles, all for £10.
