A fundraising quiz night is being staged to help those affected by the Grenfell Tower fire.

The event takes place on Friday 21 July at the Nubian Life resource centre at 50 Ellerslie Road, W12.

“The quiz night is a heartfelt response to the tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire,” explained Jazz Browne of Nubian Life, which provides community support to west London’s African-Caribbean seniors.

“We wanted to do something that would bring people together to raise funds that will be used to make direct impact on the lives of survivors of the fire, particularly older residents and children.”

Doors open at 6.30pm, and the first of the trivia questions will be asked at 8pm.

Teams of five have to sign up in advance by returning the registration form before Wednesday 12 July 2017 to

Tickets are £20 per person, and include food. There will also be a donations bar.

Organised by Nubian Life, together with the Westway Housing Association, the target is to raise £1,000 to assist local community groups who are working directly with families from Grenfell Tower.

“We have had support from well-known members of the community, including Chris Peckings, Mr Numbervator, Solo Banton, Sharon Tomlin, Christopher Tajah, Orin Beaton and TV chef Lorraine Pascal,” added Jazz. “All have given us questions from their fields of expertise.”

If you can’t make the quiz, you can still make a donation to those affected by the Grenfell disaster.
