Quizzers show their green cre­den­tials

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - REMEMBER WHEN? -

QUIZ or­gan­is­ers did a dou­ble good deed, rais­ing £400 for sin­gle par­ents as well as do­ing their bit to save the planet. Ash­ford Ginger­bread, the vol­un­tary or­gan­i­sa­tion for lone par­ents and their chil­dren, held its green quiz at the Swan Cen­tre, South Willes­bor­ough, Ash­ford. The night raised £400 for the group’s drop-in cof­fee morn­ings at St Mary’s Parish Church Hall in the cen­tre of Ash­ford, which take place on the first and third Sun­day of ev­ery month be­tween 2pm and 4.30pm. Quiz night or­gan­iser and MC Dave Rains said: “We de­cided we wanted our quiz nights to be as en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly as pos­si­ble so mem­bers brought their re­cy­cling boxes to the event so we could re­cy­cle, bot­tles, cans and pa­per that might have oth­er­wise been thrown away.” The quiz was won by a team called We Can’t Think of a Name who walked off with a shield and a bot­tle of wine each. Prize spon­sors in­cluded Coty (Rim­mels), P&O Fer­ries and Wing­ham Wildlife Park.

Any­one who would like to join Ash­ford Ginger­bread or ob­tain more in­for­ma­tion, should call Jodie on 01233 627421.
