KEEN quizzers in Somerset are this month (January, 2018) invited to sign up for a Charity Quiz & Supper Evening taking place at an award-winning farm shop in the county.

The event, which is in aid of Headway Somerset, will take place at Rumwell Farm Shop’s cafe on Friday, January 26 at 7pm.

Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop, explained: “Our Charity Quiz & Supper Evenings in 2017 were a great success and in total raised £1,500 for our charities of the year for 2017.

“The evening will be fun for all with good food too and all in aid of one of our charities of the year for 2018, Headway Somerset, which is an independent local charity. 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.

“The evening is a great opportunity to get together with a team of friends, maximum eight people per team, raise money for a local charity and also to be in with a chance of winning a prize and the glory of taking home the Rumwell Cup.

“Supper will be served from 7pm with hot food choices followed by a choice of desserts. The supper will cost £14.99 for two courses and the price includes a £1 quiz entry fee, which will be given to the charity. To book your table, please call us on 01823 461599 ext 4.”

Headway Somerset provides social and cognitive rehabilitation for adults with brain injury and support and respite for their families through its four Brain Injury Centres based in Bridgwater, Henton, Yeovil & Taunton.

Deborah Parsons, Executive Support at Headway Somerset, said: “We are so excited and thrilled to bits about being chosen as one of Rumwell Farm Shop’s charities of the year for 2018. We’re really looking forward to building our relationship throughout the year and raising awareness of the work we do.

“The Charity Quiz & Supper Evening looks set to be a great evening out with the chance to win some superb prizes. 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 as well as daughter-in-law Sophie.

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, food hall, wine cellar and gift room.

Home grown potatoes are also still available, when in season, as well as everything from fruit, vegetables and groceries to plants, flowers, gifts and cards.

The Rumwell Cafe 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 Headway Somerset will take place at Rumwell Farm Shop on Friday, January 26 at 7pm.
