Petersfield businesses get together for Rothmans Accountants charity quiz night

Do you know which Hampshire town was founded in the 12th century by the Earl of Gloucester?! …

Rothmans Accountants organised a fun-filled charity quiz night at Petersfield Golf Club to support the fantastic Kings Arms Youth Project recently. The highly successful night, packed with teams of people from across Petersfield, raised more than £500.00 for the charity.

During the evening, participants won raffle prizes which were kindly donated by a variety of local businesses, including MacDonald Oates, Picketts and Pursers, Annie Haak and many others, while also enjoying delicious food provided by Gemini Catering.

All money raised from the event will be donated to the King Arms Youth Project, also known as KA, which helps young people of all ages around Petersfield and surrounding villages. The charity provides a safe place to meet friends and have fun through lots of exciting activities, from arts and crafts to sport; helping the younger generation understand their potential and worth in the local community.

Paul New, Director at Rothmans Petersfield, said, “We wanted to hold an event that would benefit Petersfield while celebrating the launch of Rothmans’ expanded expert team, following the incorporation of Cox Manning. We couldn’t think of anything better than supporting a wonderful local youth project like The Kings Arms Youth Project as young people are our future. It was found that teams were particularly successful with local knowledge questions such as the one above (answer below!)”

Caroline Aeschliman, Operations Manager at The Kings Arms Youth Project, said, “We are very grateful to Rothmans for organising such a brilliant quiz night to raise funds for our charity. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of both those attending and those who provided raffle gifts. Events like this mean we can provide open access for local young people who are in need of support, encouragement, challenge and a safe place to just ‘be’.”
