Bexhill charity Homecall is inviting people to get their thinking caps on for the popular Quiz Night.

The charity says the quiz, on January 29, is one of its most popular events of the year.

Manager Leah Norman said: “For those of you who have regularly attended this popular annual event you will know that it is best to book your tickets well in advance in order to secure your place.

“As in previous years the Quiz Night takes place at Christchurch Methodist Hall in Bexhill, entry is at the junction of Springfield Road and Havelock Road.

“The fun begins at 7pm and we finish at 10pm. You don’t have to be a potential Mastermind entrant in order to take part our questions target all subjects and cover all abilities. You can come on your own or come with friends or a team of four. Tickets are £8 per person.

“A light supper is served along with a fruit juice or soft drink. May we respectfully ask you not to bring alcohol or to consume it on the night, as the venue is a Methodist Church Hall.

“As well as the supper there will be a raffle with some great prizes and lots and lots of fun.

Homecall is a registered charity which offers a volunteer home visiting scheme for the visually impaired in Bexhill.”

The charity provides a free service, funded entirely by grants, legacies, donations and ongoing fundraising events.

Homecall currently maintains a list of between 50 and 60 Volunteer Visitors with a similar number of clients.

Through their network of trained and vetted Volunteer Visitors they offer regular visits to clients, usually once a week, to help with a variety of tasks made difficult by sight loss.

Their Volunteer Visitors help the substantially visually impaired maintain their independence, stay in their own homes and relieve social isolation enabling access to the community.

For tickets for the quiz, or further information about the event, contact Leah Norman on 01424 717795 or email leah.homecall@gmail.com or find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/homecallbexhill.
