Quiz Night 2019 was a great success!
Our ever popular annual fund-raising quiz night raised over £2,000!
On Friday March 8th at Hayling Island Community Centre, 38 teams of 6 competed against each other for a modest prize – of course the main reward was beating the other teams! The team ‘DENSA’ were the outright winners and gained themselves a half-case of wine. There was a delicious two-course hot meal courtesy of Northney Farm Tea Rooms and a raffle with super prizes. We were able to donate £1,402 to MUNCH and £683 raised in the raffle to Rotary’s other charities
Here is some background on Munch courtesy of Park Community School.
In 2017 Park Community School established a food project called MUNCH to provide those students who normally receive Free School Meals a free meal in the holidays. ALL children attending local preschools, primary or secondary schools are invited. Our offer has expanded to parents, carers and grandparents who may also experience food poverty. MUNCH ensures that no child, no matter what school or age go hungry during the holidays. We have now expanded MUNCH to provide Sunday lunches at the end of the month and meals on Thursday tea-times to help families in our local community. We were delighted that for the fourth year running, 138 local people joined us for Christmas Day MUNCH for a traditional festive dinner and all the trimmings.
