Fundraising and friends

Fish and chips at the Jesus Centre cafe

LAST month, at the Northampton Jesus Centre we held a “Great Fish & chip quiz night”. It was a fundraising event for Sarah, one of our café volunteers who is going to India for three weeks at the end of February. She’s raising money to provide resources like pencils, rulers and exercise books for the orphanage her and a small team are going to support.

For the quiz night, there were five teams, including two from our Circle café customers. They pitted themselves against each other and while there was a clear winner, second and third places were decided through a series of nail-biting tie-break questions from our quiz master supremo Sid (the café manager). We were joined for the first time by a team of international students from Northampton Uni who came third overall. Sarah raised £200 through donations on the night.
