Haus Chiswick were massively chuffed to sponsor the Christ Church ‘Local History and Trivia Quiz Night’ fundraising for the Christ Church Stonework Restoration Project 2013. We were proud to raise just over £500 for the project and aim to double this with our next fundraiser.
On the evening we announced a calendar of fundraisers for the restoration project, sponsoring a year of events to help Christ Church reach its fundraising target. Christ Church Turnham Green has been the centerpiece of our Chiswick community for 170 years, but decades of London smog and acid rain have taken their toll and damaged the stonework which is now desperately in need of repair.
Christ Church is an unsung Chiswick hero, serving the community with their homeless shelter, school holiday groups and café. The restoration project aims to get Chiswick residents to reconnect with Christ Church and indeed the local community as a whole.
The quiz evening was our first fundraiser with the church and boy was it a success! The event itself was a sellout and the church was full to the brim of Chiswick locals. There was an incredible mix of people at the quiz ranging from local businesses to local historians, everybody mingled and made new friends.
The quiz was challenging to say the least, but was helped by a delicious bangers and mash supper and a fully stocked cash bar!
Thank you to our friends at Christ Church who made the evening a perfect start to our fundraising campaign!
