Olympic Quiz for Local Charity
Presenter of BBC TV’s current affairs show Inside Out and all-round weather guru, Kaddy Lee-Preston lent her support to help McCrudden Training raise funds for Eastbourne Charity Lark in the Park. Kaddy, who recently won Regional Personality of the Year at the Royal Television Society Awards, took the role of quiz mistress at an Olympic themed quiz night which raised over £1,000.
The Lark in the Park charity has been providing support to local children and young people with special needs and their families for over 10 years. McCrudden Training organised the fund raising quiz of Olympic proportions at the end of May, with the whole evening hosted by Kaddy. “We were thrilled that Kaddy has agreed to front the evening. With her bubbly personality the evening was fun and the money raised with go towards providing a holiday and a Christmas party for children who will really benefit” says the charity’s Chairman Mike Hooper.
A number of Eastbourne businesses joined McCrudden Training and pledged their support by sponsoring a round, or offering up auction and raffle prizes.
