SOMERSET eggheads and quizzers are invited to get tickets that go on sale this month (March, 2017) for a Charity Quiz & Supper Evening taking place at an award-winning farm shop in the county.
The event, which is in aid of Escape Support Group in Taunton, will take place at Rumwell Farm Shop’s cafe on Friday, May 5 at 7pm.
Joint Owner of the farm shop, which is located on the A38 between Taunton and Wellington, Anne Mitchell, explained: “Our last Charity Quiz & Supper Evening sold out in record time. The events have been very popular so if you want to come this time around call us to book as soon as you can.
“The evening is a great opportunity to get together with a team of friends, maximum eight people per team, raise money for charity and also to be in with a chance of winning a prize and the glory of taking home the Rumwell Cup.
“The evening will be fun for all with good food too and in aid of one of our charities of the year, Escape. Also on the night there will be a raffle with a selection of prizes from our shop, our suppliers and friends. All of the money from the raffle will be donated to the charity.
“Supper will be served from 7pm with hot food choices followed by a choice of desserts. The supper will cost £12.99 for two courses and the price includes a £1 quiz entry fee for Escape. To book your table, please call us on 01823 461599 ext 4.”
Escape Support Group has been supporting families who have a child, or children, who have disabilities or specific individual needs in the Somerset area for 17 years.
Escape’s main aim is to provide fun activities, allowing children the opportunity to experience a positive childhood where they are integrated fully, and are able to share experiences that will enhance and enrich their lives, which other children and families may take for granted.
The children supported by Escape have a wide range of needs varying from severe learning or physical disabilities, sensory loss, autism and ADHD, to a child with a minor speech delay.
Sarah Phippen, Team Leader at Escape Support Group, said: “It’s fantastic that Rumwell is hosting the quiz in aid of Escape. Its support is greatly appreciated. It looks set to be a great evening out with the chance to win some superb prizes.
“We’ll be there on the night should anyone require any further information about becoming a member or how they can get involved in fundraising. We hope lots of people get behind the event and join us on the night.”
Rumwell Farm Shop is an independent, family-run, award-winning business owned by the Mitchell family. It was originally a potato store, when David and Anne Mitchell began selling their potatoes and free range eggs at the gate.
Due to customer demand, the range of products soon increased and the farm shop grew into the place it is today. David and Anne’s sons, James and Jack, are now also involved in the business.
Rumwell Farm Shop has a traditional butchery counter selling free range pork and Aberdeen Angus beef reared just four miles away on the family farm. There is also a delicatessen, bakery, jam kitchen and food hall.
Home grown potatoes are also still available as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, flowers, gifts and cards.
The Rumwell Cafe, which opened in May 2015, can seat approximately 80 people. The food prepared in the cafe kitchen is sourced from the farm shop, the Mitchell family farm and regional suppliers.
Families are welcome to the cafe and there is a menu especially for children. The cafe also serves afternoon teas, carvery on a Sunday and is licensed to sell alcoholic beverages.
The Charity Quiz & Supper Evening in aid of Escape will take place at Rumwell Farm Shop on Friday, May 5 from 7pm.
