India Expedition Quiz Night
By Laura Cresswell, India Expedition Leader, 15 October 2016
On Friday 14th November, students going on the forthcoming India Expedition organised a quiz night in support of Colchester charity Good Foundation which works in partnership with Russ Foundation India. Thanks to huge support from parents, students and staff, 25 teams competed on the night in a packed Performance Studio and tackled questions on a range of subjects from quizmaster Andy Beatty, former chair of Governors. The event raised a fantastic £1000 so many thanks to all those who supported it.
15 staff and 4 students will travel to the Russ Foundation campus near Madurai in South India over Christmas and New Year to live, work and play with disadvantaged young people at the Children's home and visit community heathcare projects that the charity runs. In the lead up to the expedtion, the students are raising as much money as possible for the charity. Their next event is an Auction of Promises on Friday 18th November.
