Cancer Support Salisbury: Quiz Night Fundraiser
Cancer Support Salisbury Virtual Quiz for Charity
Friday June 19th 7.30 – 9pm latest
Christian Lange from All The Kit will be our quizmaster for the evening supported by Hayley as scorekeeper – they started running quizzes recently to support the local community of Berwick St James.
You may be aware that we support people affected by cancer in Salisbury and the surrounding area by providing a supportive Drop-in. Anyone can drop in for a reassuring chat over a cup of coffee, make new friends, find out information and feel welcome in a friendly, safe environment. We also offer complementary therapies including aromatherapy, reiki, massage and reflexology. Luckily, we have been supported by Macmillan Cancer Support, Community Organisers and Community First Wiltshire to get us started. We really aspire to build on our success to date and additional funding would allow us to help more people and sustain our service.
Since the Coronavirus lockdown we have been especially challenged, but have managed to maintain the support offered to cancer sufferers, and their families via remote ‘drop in’ sessions held on zoom and a continued ‘buddy’ support system. We are totally dependent on donations and clearly times are tough just now – so we thought a Quiz night was in order!
To take part is absolutely free – it should be fun – although, of course, we are welcoming donations to support the valuable work that we do. If you would like to get a team together and join in you need to register via our website –www.cancersupportsalisbury.com – Go to the ‘Contact us ‘ page and simply enter the following info into the ‘Get in touch’ box
