£467 was raised at our GEF Pub Quiz on Sunday 29th January 2017 which will pay the secondary school fees of 3 boys from our Chaka Youth Football Project for a whole year.
Kenneth, Benson and Martin had no hope of going to secondary school due to a lack of fees but all of you who supported last night have just changed that!
Huge thanks to Karen and Sarah for organising, Claire at McNastys for allowing us to use the pub, hosting and laying on food, quiz masters Ian and Barry, Ardoe House, Mr Chips, Alan Brown and Barrett and Coe for kindly donating prizes to the heads & tails game and prize for winning team and last but by no means least everyone who came along to the event. You guys have totally transformed these 3 boys lives. Congratulations to The Fists of Fury who won the quiz.

We can’t quite believe what was achieved thanks to all who attended and supported our first ever pub quiz on Sunday 6th March 2016 at McNasty’s in Aberdeen. Thanks to your amazing generosity we raised £2,720!! This not only paid the primary school tuition fees of 72 children for the whole of 2016 but also contributed towards the building of a house for Dickson and his grandmother in Iten, Kenya which our volunteers build in October 2016. Congratulations to Amy, Erin, Gareth and Sam who won the quiz.
