Our latest fundraising event was a pub quiz which was held at the Jolly Sailor, Southsea on Thursday 5th October 2017.
A great night was had by those that attended the pub quiz at the Jolly Sailor in aid of Helping Hands Portsmouth. We had an incredible turn out creating an amazing atmosphere! A huge thank you to Ross and the staff at the Jolly Sailor for making this evening one to remember.
On the night there was the quiz itself accompanied by a delicious curry, either chicken or vegetarian, and rice. After the quiz had been finished, a raffle draw took place with various prizes being donated from a variety of places local to Portsmouth. Some of the prizes won included a painting by Matt Dixon and prizes from; The Tenth Hole, Abarbistro & Camber Wines, Garbo’s Hair, Strong Island Co., Raw & Awburn and Quick Start Fitness, just to name a few.
A staggering £915.00 was raised through the sales of raffle tickets and entry fees into the quiz. These funds will be utilised over the winter period to ensure all of the homeless guys and girls and covered for the cold days and nights ahead.
Helping Hands are committed to providing food, warmth and support to any individual who needs it and your generosity will go such a long way, especially as the cold months approach us.
Last, but by no means least, a massive THANK YOU! to Anna Miles, who organised this great event. So much time and energy went into making this event happen, and it did not disappoint.
