Xmas box quiz night Christmas cheer: Glenda Brooks and David Spratt will use money raised at their annual quiz night to fill Christmas boxes with food and treats. Photo: JASON OXENHAM By HANNAH SPYKSMA David Spratt is looking forward to being a clown this Saturday night. HeandagroupofMt Eden friends are putting on their annual Christ- mas Box appeal quiz night and as hosts, dressing up to blend in with the circus theme is only half the fun. There s going to be really good music on the night and really bad jokes from me, reading the questions dressed up as a clown, Mr Spratt says. The event is a way of fundraising money for the nationwide appeal, which puts parcels together for families in need. Besides getting to dress up, Mr Spratt says there are two main reasons for organising the event. The first is to raise funds for the boxes, and the second is to encour- age people we know and their friends to come along, have a good night and support such a fan- tastic cause. All proceeds go to the Life Centre Trust, which sends the hampers to dif- ferent organisations around the country. Charities such as Women s Refuge and the Genesis Youth Project then distribute the wrapped boxes to famil- ies, just before Christ- mas. The organisation is aiming to raise $300,000 nationwide. The lead-up to the quiz night can be quite stressful says Mr Spratt, who is currently writing his masters thesis. But he and his friends get more out of it than they put in. The message of the value of family has really struck a chord with us. It s nice to be able to provide something un- conditional for others. Glenda Brooks, who works night shifts as a nurse, lives a block over from Mr Spratt and has been involved in organis- ing the event since it started several years ago. She has spent the last six weeks ringing sponsors and getting prizes for the night, which will cater for up to 200 guests. I ve always loved helping out in any kind of community project. This was something we felt was achievable as a group of friends, she says. Visit www.christ masbox.co.nz for more information.
