Gusher’s quiz night raises cash for Jago

The Gusher’s inaugural fundraising event in aid of The Jago Worrall Foundation has boosted its funds by £600.

The family quiz night was held at the Saxon Suite at Daventry Leisure Centre on Friday where 15 teams pit their wits to win some top prizes.

The quiz was the first in a series of fundraising events organised by the Gusher to help Jago Worrall, from Welton. The two-year-old was left with severe brain injuries after an accident at the family home where he nearly drowned.

However he is recovering quickly and now his parents Barney and Lyn want to bring him back to his home in Welton while giving him the necessary care and treatment.

The quiz was won by The Quizzee Rascals who claimed the prize of a family ticket to Legoland Resort Windsor while the Cotton Raiders won a family bowling ticket to Hellidon Lakes.

Deputy editor of the Daventry Express, Amanda Chalmers, said: “We’re so grateful to everyone who supported the event, both on ther night and by donating their time or products.

“This is another fabulous boost to the campaign funds.”

The Gusher would like to thank Everyone Active at Daventry Leisure Centre for providing the venue as well as the following companies for provising raffle prizes: West Midland Safari Park, the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry, Northampton Town Football Club, Daventry Court Hotel, Daytona in Milton Keynes, Cineworld in Northampton, TenPin in Northampton, Jackie Lammin Reiki Master and therapist, Brookes Beauty and Orange Blossom in Daventry.
