Pub quiz raises nearly £1,000 for Royal Blind!

Posted: 25/10/2018 | ,

Quiz goers from across the city joined Royal Blind staff and supporters to raise an amazing £1,000 for vision impaired people.

The quiz, at the Merlin in Morningside, was held during National Braille Week - our annual week to raise awareness of braille and alternative formats. 

Over 100 people attended the event and competed to be named pub quiz champion. 

Fundraising and Supporter Development Officer, Laura MacMillan, said: "I would like to thank everyone who attended our pub quiz which raised a fantastic £1,000 - all of which will go towards supporting blind and partially sighted people at our services across Scotland. 

"This year's quiz was special because it fell in National Braille Week and during the month that we are celebrating the 225th anniversary of Royal Blind

"I would also like to thank the Merlin for once again hosting the pub quiz. We hope to see everyone again soon!"
