A QUIZ night will take place to support a local man’s trek to Everest Base Camp.

Tim Barton, who turns 50 this year, is planning to take part in the high-altitude challenge in October to raise money for The Rowans Hospice in Purbrook.

The fundraising adventure comes after Mr Barton was impressed by the care Rowans staff provided during his father’s short battle with cancer.

The quiz takes place on Friday, August 23, from 7pm at St John’s Church Centre, Redhill Road, Rowlands Castle. Call 07982 508437.
