KIDSOUT EVENT A HUGE SUCCESS

Posted on 29 February 2008  - 12:00

Over 600 people attended this year's 'London Question of Sport' event on Wednesday, where they combined to raise over £100,000 for our National Nominated charity, Kidsout.

Over 600 people attended this year's 'London Question of Sport' event on Wednesday, where they combined to raise over £100,000 for our National Nominated charity, Kidsout.

The black-tie event at the Brewery in the City of London, took the form of a huge sports quiz. Tables were themed as football clubs from all around the world as contestants tackled questions in the traditional rounds such as 'what happened next' and identifying the 'mystery guest'.

An auction at the end of the evening boosted funds as did the silent auction which was running throughout the night where attendees bid for items including a shirt signed by the Spurs squad, and a chance to watch the team train at Spurs Lodge.

Kidsout, who work to transform the lives of disadvantaged children by providing fun opportunities and positive experiences, were ably assisted for the second year running by Richard Walker from Wild Harvest. Richard, a serious Spurs fan, has worked tirelessly again this year to ensure that Kidsout can continue to change the lives of thousands of children for the better.

Earlier this season, Michael Dawson gave his support to Kidsout’s latest campaign, their toybox appeal.

Many children who are brought up amidst violence or abuse, often have to leave home in the middle of the night – sometimes with just the clothes they are wearing. For just £100, Kidsout provides these children with toys and books to brighten up their lives.
