Bridgnorth Labour Party is hoping a quiz night will become a regular feature to raise money for the town’s Food Bank. Cllr Julia Buckley and quiz team Sean Horgan and Charlie Scotton-Peters held an event at the George on Hollybush Road in October: “We hope our quiz will become a regular feature so we can have a good time while doing some good!” says Cllr Buckley, who was elected as chair of Bridgnorth and Highley Labour Party in September.
Run by a team of volunteers, Bridgnorth Food Bank is based at 7 East Castle Street and is open every Monday morning from 10am until noon to support those in need of food and other essential items. Recipients are supported with benefits advice and help with any complex needs.
Bridgnorth Labour Party is also offering a Christmas Curry Club get together on Monday 10 December at 8pm at Eurasia on West Castle Street, with two courses for £15. Cllr Buckley says, “The Christmas curry is open to Labour members, supporters, voters, friends, the curious… There’s no big speaker, just a relaxed Christmas celebration amongst like-minded people.”
