On 31st January, we held a Quiz Night at our Barn supporting the Charlotte Straker Project, in which we fundraised £1,240 towards their Community Respite Care Bed.

It was a sold-out event and a really fun night. Our master Quiz was Alistair Jenkins, who voluntarily took up this role, and the winner team was ‘Quoits Batters’, who received a voucher worth of £200 to spend at the Angel.

Among the raffle prizes were bottles of wine and bags of coffee kindly donated by our suppliers, while the Auction prizes were a Pizza Shack for 30 people donated by Angel Street Food, a Falcons T-shirt donated by Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club, Champagne Afternoon donated by Lord Crewe Arms and 2 tickets for a Sam Fender show. Besides, Angelfish (our own ‘chippy’) served fish and chips to 95 guests (cooked to order) in just 29 minutes!

Since 2015, the Charlotte Straker Team have planned a brand-new Community Respite Care Bed and after the local community raised the £132,000 funding required, they can provide one free of charge community respite bed for local people to provide respite for carers/hard-pressed families, and this community respite care bed is now part of their core service.
