Quiz competition in aid of Vista

Published on 7th July 2016 in Fundraising

Local quiz compiler Richard Angrave has launched a quiz competition in order to raise vital funds for us.

He said “I am aiming to raise over £1,000 for Vista, as they provided support for my father who was registered blind for the last two years of his life.

Vista helped my father to maintain his independence, providing equipment and technology to assist with daily living.

My mother also took part in voluntary work, either working in the office or recording talking newspapers. So in memory of both my parents, I have set myself this fundraising target.”

“I have raised over £100,000 for various charities so far by hosting quizzes, and I hope to achieve my £1,000 goal with the help of the public. This is my first fundraiser for Vista - the money raised will make a huge difference to the lives of local people with sight loss.”

You can download Richard’s quiz below. To enter, please email your answers to rwangrave@btinternet.com or post to Mr Angrave, 12 Charnwood Avenue, Asfordby, Melton Mowbray, LE14 3YG. 

There is a £1 entry fee payable to Richard’s JustGiving page.

The closing date for entries is Saturday 5th November 2016.

In addition, Richard is hosting a fundraising quiz night at The Stute (next to Holwell Sports and Social Club), Saturday 17th September, 7:30pm. Entry £5. For more information and to book your place, contact Richard directly on 01664 812771 or rwangrave@btinternet.com.
