Charity Quiz Raises £740 for Romania Children Camp

Each year here at Keynsham Elim we come together for an evening of fun and food at our annual Big Charity Quiz Night. It's more than just seeing the fierce rivalry between last years champions and the gleaming eyes of the young adults, the event is put on to raise funds for our Romania Mission - helping some of the poorest in Romania. The money we raise from these fundraising events goes to making a practical difference in people's lives. From installing clean, reliable water in people's homes, to bringing food parcels to struggling families, to our Christian summer camps for the children in Oradea, Romania.

The evening had a fantastic competitive and fun atmosphere with many teams fighting for the top spot to win our Annual Trophy and shiny Gold Medals but it was our returning previous winners 'BWB's' who won with an astonishing 113 points, with our runners up 'Tizers' coming in with 98 points. Congratulations to our winners and to all who took part.

It wasn't just the winners who walked away with a prize, we saw "The Contenders" team take home the much cherished wooden spoons. The question we want answered is Where 'The Contenders' contending for the top spot or the bottom spot? Can they come back next year to take the top spot?

On behalf of the Keynsham Elim Romania Team, we want to say a huge thank you for everyone in our local community and beyond that took part and donated to the cause. Thanks to all your generous support and donations we raised a record breaking £740 towards our Romania mission! An evening of fun that will make a real difference to the lives of families in Oradea, Romania.
