Quiz night in a good cause

Matamata Chronicle - - News - By NI­COLA STEWART

Piarere Young Farm­ers have stepped up to sup­port the Mata­mata Li­ons and to help other young peo­ple in the com­mu­nity.

The club is host­ing a char­ity quiz night tomorrow, with pro­ceeds go­ing to­ward the es­tab­lish­ment of a Mata­mata Leos Club.

Leo stands for lead­er­ship, ex­pe­ri­ence, op­por­tu­nity, and the club would en­cour­age young peo­ple to be in­volved in their com­mu­nity.

Li­ons pres­i­dent War­ren Feek said he was work­ing with Mata­mata Col­lege to try and get stu­dents in­volved. ‘‘The idea is for youth to help fund youth.’’

Li­ons in­vest a large share of money they raise help­ing young peo­ple with schol­ar­ships, pro­grammes such as Out­ward Bound, and over­seas ex­pe­ri­ences.

The quiz night kicks off at the Mata­mata Club at 7pm and prizes in­clude ham­pers, spa and din­ner vouch­ers, and much more.

Events co­or­di­na­tor Dell Crump said it was the first char­ity night they had held this year but they hoped to host more.

‘‘It’s a good way to get in­volved in the com­mu­nity and get the word around for a good cause.’’

Twenty teams of four will com­pete and any­one in­ter­ested in en­ter­ing can con­tact Dell on 021 710 754 with their team name.
