Burnham-On-Sea club's quiz nights raise over £6,000 for good causes

Over £6,000 has been raised this year for local good causes by weekly quiz nights held at Burnham-On-Sea's Ritz Social Club.

The popular weekly Friday quizes raised thousands during 2016 for local charities, clubs and societies.

Groups who benefited included Children's Society, BARB Search & Rescue, Children's Hospice South West, Hillview Carnival Club, Weston Hospice, BIARS, Bay Club, Fibro Heart, Scouts, RNLI and many more.

An average of £130 is raised on the evenings with the record standing at £281 for Mencap.

Local clubs and societies, school PTAs, charities and local groups are invited to contact the club since bookings for dates in 2017 are now open.

Committee member Mike Barsby told "We are really pleased to be able to offer local groups the opportunity to enjoy a relaxing night out and to raise a substantial amount for their good cause at the same time."

"We organise everything, including supplying the questions, quizmaster, snacks and the raffle. All the good cause has to do is promote the quiz within their group, supply a few raffle prizes and enjoy the evening."

"Our target for 2017 is £7,000 - so if your group or charity wants to share in this please contact us ASAP as the dates book quickly. You may reserve up to three dates through the year."

The Quiz is family-friendly, hand-out rounds are given out at 8pm and the questions start promptly at 8.30pm, ending about 10.30. Teams of up to six are invited to arrive from 7.45pm.

Admission is £1 per person. The quiz is open to all so if you're not a charity and just fancy a pub quiz on a Friday night the Ritz will give you a warm welcome. All the money raised on the night goes to the visiting charity or group and the winning team gets a prize.

If you would like your group or charity to be booked in for a future date or just want more info, email or text Mike on 07936538263.
