Kernos Quiz Night raises over £1300

On the night of Friday 24th March Long Melford Village Hall was crammed with around 115 contestants participating in the Kernos Centre’s 10th annual Quiz Night, during which the teams taking part managed to succeed in raising over £1,300 for the Sudbury-based counselling charity.

Organisers and volunteer fundraisers at the Kernos Centre had galvanised their many friends and supporters to make this Quiz Night a roaring success. Chris Boatwright, Clinical Director of Kernos, said: “The money raised by this annual event means a tremendous amount to us – it allows us to continue to provide much needed counselling to people in our community. And I must thank all the Kernos People who worked so tirelessly to make this an exceptional evening”.

Chris Helliwell, the Quiz Master of the Cock & Bell in Long Melford, once again provided his expertise and great sense of humour as Master of Ceremonies at no cost – he really made the evening into a wonderful fun event, providing a testing selection of great quiz questions.
