CALL FOR ISLAND QUIZZERS TO GET BUSY FOR CHARITY


Whether you are a seasoned pro or a complete newbie, quizzers on the Isle of Wight are being invited to help raise money to support families affected by brain tumours.

The next in a series of quizzes is being held at The Dairyman’s Daughter, in Arreton, on Monday 29th April at 19:30. This is the fourth charity pub quiz being held by Southern Co-Op’s funeral home in Ryde, with the last quiz raising £259.

This month’s quiz will be raising money for The Wight Brainy Bunch – a local brain tumour charity which runs a monthly support group, provides financial assistance to families struggling with added expenses and supports much needed research via The Brain Tumour Charity.

Sam Walker, Funeral Co-ordinator at The Co-operative Funeralcare in Ryde, said:

“The charity is incredibly special as it was set up by a local couple, Mark and Kathryn Grimes, after he was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2015.”

The Wight Brainy Bunch is being supported as part of Southern Co-op’s community engagement programme ‘Love Your Neighbourhood’. This initiative addresses four key social themes – promoting greener, healthier, safer, and more inclusive neighbourhoods.

Tickets are £2 per person with up to 6 people per team.
