Quiz nights raise over £3,600 for good causes at Burnham's Ritz Club

Over £3,600 has been raised this year for local good causes from weekly quiz nights held at Burnham-On-Sea's Ritz Social Club.

The popular weekly Friday quizes have raised a total of £3,656 so far during 2017 for local charities, clubs and societies.

Those that have benefited include Children's Society, Children's Hospice South West, Hillview Carnival Club, Weston Hospice, BIARS, the Bay Centre, Fibro Heart, Scouts and many more. An average of £130 is raised on the evenings with the record standing at £344 for Sea Cadets.

Local clubs and societies, school PTAs, charities, local groups are invited to contact The Ritz in Victoria Street to book for Friday dates from January 2018.

Ritz Social Club manager Paul Hale 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, 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 2018 is £6,000 - 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 two 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 information email or text Mike Barsby on 07936 538263.
