The Rising Sun pub in Haddenham played host to a Charity Quiz Night on Saturday 7th September, raising over £590 pounds for chosen charity, the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance, the local air ambulance for Buckinghamshire.
With the aid of landlord and lady, Rob and Miranda Cousins, the night was organised for neighbours Alex Gardner & Sarah Williamson, locals to the pub on Thame Road who are preparing to do a sponsored skydive for the TVACAA on 28th September, as part of National Air Ambulance Week 2013.
It was a sell-out night and the event was very well received. As well as prizes for the winning team, entrants and visitors were treated to a disco and a prize raffle, whilst being treated to some good old traditional pub grub!
Sarah Williamson, who is Head of Fundraising for the Thames Valley and Chiltern Air Ambulance, said: "We've really been looking forward this is evening for a while. A big, big Thank You to everyone at the Rising Sun for their support on the night. Being a place that is close to home makes it just that little bit more special!"
Monday 23rd September 2013 will mark the start of National Air Ambulance Week, an initiative to raise awareness of the work of air ambulance charities.
