Quiz Night for All 2018


There was lots of laughter at this year's Quiz Night for All on Saturday 10 March. Many thanks to all who came and helped to make it such an enjoyable event. We had a full house. Together we raised £330 for Addiscombe Neighbourhood Care Association (ANCA) who provide services for people of all ages in East Croydon, Park Hill, Addiscombe and Woodside.


ANCA are looking for new volunteers to help provide services to older and other vulnerable people. There are various volunteering opportunities, eg giving people lifts for example to hospital appointments if you have a car, accompanying people on the Shopping Bus service if you don't have a car or helping with general odd jobs (eg changing light bulbs) or light gardening.


For weekend shopping, that might be helpful for one-off trips, for people who need temporary help, following an operation/illness etc; or maybe are housebound. We try to be as flexible as possible for our clients; it often doubles as befriending for them. As to commitment, volunteers could be as regular as they are available, or be a 'Reserve' for holidays/illness etc.’


If you are interested in possibly helping out – then please contact Norman Till, the ANCA Co-ordinator at their office on  For more info on ANCA.
