Reading Time: 2 minutes

7th March 2012

There’s still time to get your team together and join the BIG quiz night in support of local children on 22nd March at AFC Bournemouth, that’s the message from Life Education Wessex.

This is the fifth year for the successful BIG quiz and Nigel Hedges President of the Chamber of Trade and Commerce will once again be the quizmaster, so it’s guaranteed to be lots of fun!

Lorraine Hewitt, Fundraising Manager Life Education Wessex said: “We are calling all local businesses and groups to join in. It’s a brilliant chance to mix a bit of fun with business meet new contacts and do something great for local children.  The quiz has been a brilliant event for us. Last year we had 200 people attend and managed to raise £9,116, which meant we could provide health and drug prevention education for 2,604 local children. This year we would love to reach £10,000. It’s a great evening, that kicks off with a great meal , is lots of fun with friends or colleagues and you also get to do a bit of networking too.  But most importantly, you are helping to raise valuable funds that will help children to make healthy choices as they grow up.

“There are different ways local businesses can get involved and support us: Sign up a team of up to six members and take part in the BIG quiz challenge, make donations for the raffle and silent auction, and sponsor a quiz round for £100 to promote your business further.”

Tickets cost £15 per person and include a hot meal,  1st, 2nd and 3rd team prizes,  the Big Quiz trophy and individual medals.   The event starts at 6.30pm with a delicious hot meal and the quiz starts at 7.30pm
