Quiz night for a very special cause

Posted: 23rd August 2016

Holiday Inn Winchester is offering a fun way of raising funds and awareness for a fantastic local cause.

On Thursday, 6th October, the hotel is showing its support for Hounds for Heroes, with a special fundraising evening featuring home-cooked curry and a quiz.

Working closely with the Hampshire-based charity Hounds for Heroes for the last three years, the Holiday Inn Winchester has been sponsoring accommodation for injured veterans to train with their new assistance dogs.

The staff at the hotel look forward to hearing the patter of paws around the hotel while hosting the regular training sessions, and have become very attached to the highly-intelligent dogs that bring positive changes to the lives of the veterans.  

The hotel’s recently appointed general manager and keen quizzer Marc Solarz commented: “Curry and quiz nights are always such a popular event. We wanted to create a fun way of raising funds and awareness for this very special charity that we sponsor.”

Tickets are available at £14.95 per person to include the curry buffet and quiz, with a prize for the winner and a raffle.  Food will be served from 7pm and the quiz will start at 7.45pm. Maximum team size of 10 people.

To book, call 01962 670700 or email events@hiwinchester.co.uk

Hounds for Heroes provide specially-trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the UK Armed Forces and Emergency Services. To find out more, visit www.houndsforheroes.com
