Local Quiz Night Raises Over £2,600
Regarded as one of the region’s biggest quiz events, a local family run hearing care company held their bi-annual quiz night which managed to raise an incredible amount for a UK deafness charity.
The Hearing Care Centre hosted their seventeenth quiz fundraiser 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 sold out in less than a week, which further demonstrated the event’s popularity.
Thanks to generous support from local businesses, ticket sales and a bumper raffle, £1,624.37 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 £2,624.37.
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. Visit hearingcarecentre.co.uk/news to keep up with all the latest.
