On Thursday 21st March Reigate Manor hosted another of their fantastic quiz and curry nights to raise funds for local charity Stripey Stork. Tickets were in demand and the event was a sell out with 120 quiz goers all fighting to win the coveted trophy!
Stripey Stork is a small charity based in Reigate established in 2013 helping those in need in the local community.
Stripey Stork was established in August in 2013. The charity was started by a group of mums who wanted to see the items their babies and children no longer needed re-used in the local community. The concept is very simple, they take donations of new and pre-loved toys, clothes and equipment for babies and children and after making sure they’re safe and clean, rehome them with local families in need.
The team at Reigate Manor are always keen get involved and support local charities and following on from many successful quiz nights previously got in touch with Stripey Stork to suggest hosting one for them.
The evening was a storming success with a delicious mid quiz curry served up along with a game of heads or tales, a raffle and an auction for a signed rugby ball by England player Ben Cohen. The event raised just shy of £2000 for the charity.
Giles Thomas, Group Operations Director of the hotel group said “We really do enjoy putting on these quiz nights, the whole team gets involved by writing the quiz, hosting and scoring, it’s a great evening’s entertainment and it’s fantastic to be able to have the space to hold such large quiz nights and raise so much money for wonderful charities such as Stripey Stork”.
