More than 100 people came together for an evening of fundraising fun.

First Step hosted its latest quiz on Saturday, led by regular quizmasters Rosemary and Keith Kew and attended by 14 teams.

The winners were Brenda Giovnilli and her team from New Friends Social Club, who pipped their nearest rival to the post by just one point.

The event was hosted at the charity’s centre in Tangmere Crescent, Hornchurch, and raised £1,003.

Fundraising manager Michelle Mitchell said: “The quiz was such a fun event and the scores were very close.

“We would like to extend special thanks to Rosemary and Keith for their continued commitment to First Step and sincere thanks to everyone who came along and made the evening so enjoyable.”
