Council quiz raises funds for local charity

Published Monday, 21st December 2015

Worcestershire County Council's Annual Staff Christmas Quiz has this year raised £310 for charity.

The quiz, attended by over 100 members of staff, was held after work last Thursday (Dec 17) and the winning team nominated Maggs Day Centre as their chosen recipient.

Chairman of the Council, Ian Hopwood, was on hand to present prizes to the winners last week, and has today handed over the donation to Maggs Manager Mel Kirk, coincidentally on the 30th anniversary of the Day Centre.

Councillor Hopwood said: "The Quiz is an enjoyable evening for our staff but more importantly it raises funds for local good causes. This year's winners have chosen Maggs Day Centre as their nominated charity and it was good to meet Mel today on their 30th anniversary to make our donation."

Maggs Day Care Centre provides a lifeline to help vulnerable people survive everything that life throws at them. The Centre is open five days a week, and provides a safe, dry environment with food and hot drinks, showers and laundry facilities, as well as mentoring and support services.
