On Saturday 20th October the Friends of Ascension, AEC’s parent support committee, held their first fundraising event; a quiz night to help fund raise and cover costs for athletes to have the opportunity to compete at an overseas competition in 2019.
… And what an amazing night it was! With over 8 teams in attendance ready to get ‘quizzy’ and a brilliant raffle with some excellent prizes- kindly donated by Go Ape, The London Bridge Experience, and West Ham United, FOA were able to raise £767! This is a great total for their first event; it’s made even sweeter when Barclays have agreed to match fund, meaning the total now stands at £1,543.
Nikki Hunter, parent to AEC alumni member Christina, and long-time supporter of the work AEC does in the community, said: ‘We had a wonderful time. Thank you to all those who organised such a great night.’’ And Charlotte Arnold, parent to Laura and Anna- coaches on two of AEC’s teams said: ‘It was a fantastic evening with great company!’
No doubt, it was a huge success. Hopefully the next one won’t be too far off!
A huge thank you to all who helped arrange, and deliver, such a fantastic evening!
