Hundreds of pounds raised at quiz night

A student fundraising to take a charity trip to Tanzania has raised hundreds of pounds at a recent quiz.


The student hosted a fundraising event recently at Illogan Village Hall. The night proved to be so popular she saw 13 teams taking part.

The village hall was full to capacity helping her to raise £275. She can now add this total to her collection from other events.

In November she raised £1,040 after organising a ladies’ fashion show and pop-up shop at Heathcoat social club.

The Year 10 student is planning to travel to Tanzania this year to help others less fortunate than herself.

The trip, planned for July, will cost thousands of pounds so she is fundraising hard.

She hopes to travel to East Africa to spend four weeks helping others. She will be going with Camps International to help with local projects such as building classrooms, community centres or protecting wildlife.

Her mother said she is proud of all the hard work her daughter is putting in to raise the cash needed for the trip.

She said the Fun Quiz Night was supported really well.

She added: “There was a great atmosphere and everyone had lots of fun and we raised an amazing £275.

“I would like to say thank you to everyone for their support.”
