Quiz night in aid of Nepal open to all

Quiz night in aid of Nepal open to all Cheshire Firefighter and Community Safety Apprentices are hosting a game show and quiz night to raise money for a charity, which builds schools for children in Nepal.

The quiz, known as Test the Team, is being run by Barclays and costs £10 per person, which includes hot food and a welcome drink, and is open to teams of up to five people.

Teams will take part in general knowledge questions and game show rounds such as part of the night, which takes place on Wednesday, January 23rd. Doors open at 6:00pm for a 6:45pm start.

12 Firefighter and Community Safety Apprentices will head out to Nepal in March 2019 and will work with the charity Classroom in the Clouds to help build a much needed school, but first the apprentices need to raise £30,000 to complete the building of the school.

Firefighter and Community Safety Apprentices Olivia Lovatt and Ellie Ditchfield are coordinating the event. Ellie said:

“It’s going to be a great evening and lots of fun. Barclays are very kindly helping with the quiz and will also do a couple of game show rounds that I’m sure will go down well with the teams.”

All the money raised from the quiz, which is being held at Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service, Sadler Road, Winsford, will go towards the building of an Early Years Centre in Bung, a remote Nepalese village.

This provision will provide strong foundations for learning, enabling the youngest children in the village access to an education.

Following the Nepalese earthquakes in 2015 which killed over 8,000 people, injured more than 21,000 people and left hundreds of thousands of people homeless, the need for this help is even more important and will give children for generations to come the opportunity of an education.

The quiz is open to everyone so please email olivia.lovatt@cheshirefire.gov.uk for more information or to purchase tickets call 07881957910.
