Wednesday night is Quiz Night for Selsdon’s band of volunteers

Wednesday nights have become Quiz Nights, at least virtually for the volunteers working through the coronavirus emergency at the Selsdon Food Hub.

They are all set up for a quiz in Selsdon every Wednesday

The area’s churches, businesses and voluntary sector groups who have come together to help lonely and isolated residents, establishing a network of street champions to carry out errands with the shopping and small DIY jobs, now has more than a thousand members.

But it is also determined to build community and have fun during these challenging times. The group runs an online quiz that anyone in the community can join. Each weekly quiz has a theme.

So far, it has encompassed Easter, chocolate and cocktails.

Local resident Cecillie Sasu helps organise the quiz each week. “The popularity of the quiz has grown each week, last week we had 15 teams each competing over five rounds,” she said.

“It’s nice to meet local people on screen and then you might see them again in Sainsbury’s or Aldi as you do your weekly, social distancing, shop. The quiz takes place every Wednesday at 8pm and anyone is welcome to join in. You can find out more information about the quiz on the Coronvirus Selsdon Support Facebook page or by visiting our website.”

The Selsdon Food Hub is always welcoming donations, which can be made through the Selsdon Contact website.

They are also still seeking volunteers to act as street champion. To find out more, visit
