Compton Dando pub quiz benefits local causes

Presentation at the Compton InnThree charities are the real winners of a local pub’s regular quiz nights.

The Compton Inn has hosted the monthly charity quiz event for many years and has raised thousands for local good causes.

And when the fund reached more than £2,000 last month, the sum was split between three charities, each receiving £700.

The three chosen causes were: Keynsham & District Mencap Society’s Superdream project, which is aiming to take a group of youngsters to EuroDisney next year; The Thomas More Project, which supports adults with learning difficulties; and The Golden Oldies, a music project that works with the elderly.

The pub hosted a cheque presentation on September 20.

Christine Hall, a long-standing supporter of the charity quiz, said: “We wanted to support local charities that span the age groups.”

Paul Thomas, landlord of the Compton Dando pub, said: The quiz has gone from strength to strength, with virtually a full house each month. We are proud to be associated with three such worthy causes and it’s good to see that a bit of light-hearted fun for us on a Monday night can make such a difference to other people’s lives.”
