Toy Appeal: Time to join our Quiz Night and bring Christmas cheer to Newham youngsters

15:00 26 October 2012

Now is the time for all good men and women to come to the aid of the appeal that is at the heart of life in Newham.

Come on down and join the quiz event of the year on December 6.

The quiz night competition is a chance to raise money for the Community Links and Newham Recorder

Christmas Toy Appeal.

Our annual challenge quiz will be held from 7.30pm.

Participants can arrive from 7pm at Links’ base in Barking Road, Canning Town.

It always provides tension, drama and above all else, fun. The Recorder’s own team will be there, as teams battle it out for the Maureen Allen memorial trophy.

Tables of eight cost just £75, which will enable one family of disadvantaged children to have a really special Christmas.

As well as the chance to hold the trophy for

a year, each member of the winning team will get a bottle of wine. There are also prizes for the last placed teams.

To enter call (020) 7473 2270 or email

Early booking is recommended.
