Trivia and chilli to raise funds for dementia care

Solihull Editorial 29th Jan, 2020 Updated: 29th Jan, 2020   0

A SOLIHULL-based charity providing dementia care, and work-based learning for adults with learning disabilities is hosting a Trivia and Chilli fundraising night.

The Family Care Trust will hold the event at Newlands Bishop Farm in Catherine-de-Barnes on Friday February 28.

Teams of between four and eight people are welcome to enter the quiz, which will cover a variety of topics, with prizes available for the top performing teams. A chilli and rice meal is included in the ticket price, and participants will also be able to buy drinks from the bar and take part in a raffle.

This year the charity is celebrating its 25th anniversary and is looking to raise an ambitious £250,000 towards the design and build of a new woodwork training workshop facility and a cafe to help many more people with learning difficulties across Solihull.




During the last 25 years the Family Care Trust has supported more than 200 adults with learning difficulties with work-based training at Newlands Bishop Farm and Community Gardening Services and provided specialist day care for more than 2,000 people with memory problems such as Alzheimer’s, dementia, strokes and Parkinson’s at The Blanning Day Centre.

Now, plans are afoot for a new facility to include a new garage and workspace for teaching woodwork, as well as opening a spacious café and kitchen area.


The aim is to provide more catering and hospitality training, as well as providing wider employment opportunities for more project workers. Once complete, the charity plans to open the café to the public, allowing local people to see how they are supporting young adults.

The Trivia and Chill Night starts at 7pm and ends at 10.30pm.

Tickets cost £10 via Eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/trivia-chilli-night-tickets-88905174771. Email [email protected] ot Tel 0121 711 2939.
