Co-op Funeral Directors to host quiz for charity

Co-operative Funeralcare branches in Rose Green, Bognor Regis and Felpham, are holding a quiz and meal after it raised £1,000 last year.

The funds will go to the Bognor Regis Lions Club – Wenceslas Appeal, and is aimed at helping people get out of fuel poverty during the winter.

The funeral homes are part of the regional, independent co-operative – Southern Co-op which encourages its colleagues to hold fundraisers, make donations and volunteer as part of its community engagement programme.

The charity quiz and meal is being held on 12 October at 7pm in the Rowland Rank Centre, at 205 Aldwick Road, Bognor Regis. Tickets are £10 per person including food with four to six people per team, with individuals also welcome.

Lindsey Booker, funeral coordinator, said: “The night is more than just a few answers on a blank sheet of paper. It includes a fish and chips supper as well as the chance to win some amazing prizes in a raffle.

“ Last year’s was so much fun. We couldn’t have hoped for better. We raised so much essential funding for the appeal and the feedback we had was really positive. It is such an incredibly important issue that we want to help to fight. Being able to turn your heating on when you get cold should not be a luxury.”

Earlier this year, the local funeralcare colleagues teamed up to wash cars for The Bognor Regis Lions Club – Wenceslas Appeal and raised £178 in total.
