Quiz Night at Kildrum

Kildrum Parish Church is holding a Quiz Night and raffle on Saturday 2nd February at 7.00pm. The money raised from this event will be going towards Natalie Dunn’s trip to Machu Picchu, Peru. She is walking the Inca Trail in October to raise money for GirlGuiding and needs to raise £4000 overall. This event will help towards reaching that goal.

Around half the overall money raised goes to GirlGuiding while the other half goes towards covering the expenses of the trip such as paying doctors to come, to cover accommodation at either end of the trip (the rest is camping on the mountain), the food and the flights.

Teams can be minimum of two people up to eight people maximum. Tickets are £2 per head with tickets available at the door, where you will also be asked how many are in your team. You can also book tickets ahead through Natalie Dunn using Messenger; she will take note of your name and put tickets aside.

Sign-up or find out further information about the event on our Facebook page.

GirlGuiding UK has introduced a new system called Join Us which any new girls or adult volunteers can go to (if they have never been a part of Guiding before) and enter their top 3 choices of Groups to attend. An email is then sent to the Guider-in-Charge asking if they have spaces available. The Guider-in-Charge can then reply with the details. The GirlGuiding UK website (click on the link above) has more details.
