Within a day of Victoria tweeting about the event to her 408.7k followers on Twitter, the quiz had sold out. What a fantastic response to the event.
We are now looking for generous local businesses that might like to make a donation towards the fundraising raffle that is scheduled during the quiz. Perhaps you’re a local restaurant that might like to donate a meal, a local grocer that might like to donate a hamper showcasing your goodies, perhaps you’re a local salon offering a pampering treat, whoever you are and whatever you might like to donate we would love to hear from you so please get in touch.
We’ll be sure to showcase the fantastic goodies on offer and the details of businesses that have generously donated them both on our website and to our community via social media.
Please email [email protected] if you would like to make a donation.
About the Event:
A unique and intimate pub quiz night, crafted by the question editors of Only Connect and hosted by its presenter, Victoria Coren Mitchell, in aid of Doorstep, a small and wonderful local charity that helps homeless families and children in northwest London.
Tickets are £300 for a table of six (so £50 a head if table hosts are charging their guests) but please note also:
on the night we will be selling raffle tickets and asking for donations. This is a very special, one-off chance to be part of a small group playing a pub triv quiz with Victoria Coren Mitchell and Jack Waley-Cohen* and we are looking to raise as much as possible for this very special local charity.
Please bring cash with you as we can’t take credit cards!
Sweet treats will be provided, and drinks can be bought from the main bar.
*(the mysterious David McGaughey may or may not be present).
Victoria Coren Mitchell is a nationally recognised writer, television presenter and poker player. She is a parent, Camden resident and long-standing supporter of Doorstep.
Here’s what she has to say about Doorstep:
I was bowled over by Doorstep when I first walked in. It’s an organisation that obviously has a huge and transformative effect on the lives of the people it serves – there is a community of lonely mothers, unlucky children and stigmatised families who might otherwise be sitting in tiny rooms feeling hopeless, but instead can find light and space and colour and laughter and play – and help, and kindness and company – and this is surely the road back to pride and confidence, getting back into the workplace and the regular world. I think it’s really wonderful.
