A SOCIAL club in Redditch has provided a venue for a charity event - which organisers feared they would have to cancel.

Carers Careline, which provides vital support to carers in the town, had organised a quiz night to help raise cash for the charity but they didn't have a venue.

Hard working volunteers thought they would have to cancel.

However, Lodge Park Social Club stepped in to save the day.

It has kindly opened its doors to the charity so that they can host the event.

A spokesman from the charity said: "Redditch quizmaster Craig had generously offered to run a quiz for us. Problem was – we need somewhere to hold it!

"We tried everywhere and thought we’d have to cancel.

"Luckily, Lodge Park Social Club stepped in."

They added: "They’re really happy for us to have it there and are even going to promote it – so we’re hoping loads of people will come along and support us."

The quiz night will be held on Friday, May 24, from 7pm until 9pm.

Entry is just £2 per person.

The spokesman added: "There will be raffles, prizes and plenty of fun. So get a quiz team together and come along. Help us raise money to support Redditch people who are caring for family, friends and neighbours at home.

"We’re hoping that lots of carers and the people they look after will be able to make it and get a bit of a break together."
