A NEW charity for Cancer Research UK has launched in Nailsea.

Nowhere FUNdraisers held their first quiz night on March 12 at Ring O'Bells in the town.

Rob Blamey acted as quizmaster, taking the teams through rounds of themed questions.

There was also a raffle held, with prizes from Fine & Country North Somerset, SP Hair, The Beauty Rooms, Waitrose & Partners, and at Ring O’Bells.

Over £500.50 was raised, which will help Cancer Research UK find treatments that are less aggressive than current methods and hopefully a way to eradicate the disease.

The large independent charity also provides support for families and loved ones of those with the disease.

The new group welcomes anyone who would like to join them in their cause, whether it be taking part or helping out at events.

People of all ages are welcome.
