Weekly charity quiz nights at Burnham-On-Sea’s Ritz Social Club have raised an impressive total of £5257 so far this year – and local groups can now apply for dates in 2020.

Those that have benefited this year from the Friday quiz night fundraisers include Burnham W.I., RSPCA, Scouts, Secret World, Pawlett Pre-School, BARB and many others.

An average of £150 is raised on the evenings with the record stands at £344 for Burnham Sea Cadets.

Local clubs, groups and charities are being invited to contact The Ritz as they are now taking bookings for dates from January 2020.

Manager Paul Hale said: “From the start of this month, we have changed the night of our weekly quiz from Friday to Monday.”

“We are really pleased to be able to offer local groups the opportunity to raise a substantial amount for their good cause.”

“We organise everything, supplying the questions, quizmaster, 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 2020 is £7,000 – so if your group or charity wants to share in this please contact us ASAP as we are already taking bookings into next year.”

“The Quiz is family-friendly, hand out rounds are given out at 8pm and the questions start promptly at 8.30pm, ending about 10.30pm. 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 fancy a friendly pub quiz on a Monday night the Ritz will give you a warm welcome.

Paul adds: “Every penny raised on the night goes to the visiting charity or group and the winning team gets a token prize.”
