For our special quiz night we are particularly fortunate that four local girls, all aged 15, have chosen to support Age Concern colchester and NE Essex for their Rotary Youth Leadership and Management Project. As quiz organisers they will be in charge of planning and running this event, which will be a valuable learning opportunity to gain experience as young entrepreneurs. Through their dedication and hard work, they are eager to help to raise valuable funds while raising awareness for our charity. As well as setting the questions etc they are also preparing a sandwich buffet and selling home made cakes on the night! Yum. So we are spreading the good news about how young people with talent are really keen to invest time into our communities in such a positive way.
Teams of 4-8 are welcome, but if you want to come on your own that’s fine too – we will find you a team. Folks of all ages are most welcome, for instance family groups with grandchildren.
The girls are aware loneliness is occurring at an epidemic rate in later years and hope that some of the people who access Age Concern’s facilities might take this opportunity for a night out. They have thoughtfully set the start time at 6.30-8.30 so that no-one has to be out too late. Their target is to raise over £400 for later years. If there is a full house, this figure could be even more. So do come along to raise the roof! It’s important to get behind young entrepreneurs and recognise their contribution supporting a charity at such a young age.
