Helping charities that help deaf people

One of the biggest quiz events in Ipswich has managed to continue raising a staggering amount of money for a local, national and international charities.

Local hearing care specialists The Hearing Care Centre organised their 7th Charity Quiz Night to help raise money for their chosen charity Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, as well as Umutara School in Rwanda, who support very vulnerable deaf children.

More than 160 people filled the main hall at Greshams Social Club in Ipswich, for a fun night of difficult trivia, and light-hearted camaraderie with the aim to raise over £1,000.

The Hearing Care Centre, which looks after peoples’ hearing across East Anglia, managed to raise £1,201.00 on the night, taking the amount of money they’ve raised at their annual quiz nights to more than £10,200.

The quiz, hosted by local entrepreneur and charity supporter Steve Flory, saw guests enjoy 9 rounds of spirited rivalry and it was only one point that decided who came out the winners.

Universally Challenged, led by Mr David Spall, finished top winning £100. The second and third place teams also won cash prizes.
