The Blue & Gold Trust in conjunction with Kingís Lynn Town Football Club are holding a quiz night in the bar at The Walks Football Stadium on Friday the 28th of June 2019. All proceeds will go to the Ground Development Fund (GDF).

Doors open at 7pm with the quiz starting at 7:30pm.  Entry will be £4 per head with teams of up to a maximum of 4 people.  The winning team will receive a cash prize of £50.

A raffle will also be held, and any donations towards raffle prizes would be gratefully received.

Even if you do not wish to participate in the quiz, come along to have a chat or drop in with your donation to the GDF. 

The Trust is also planning to hold a sale/auction of KLFC/KLTFC, or any football memorabilia.  Again, any donations towards the sale/auction would be gratefully received.  We already have in excess of 300 programmes starting from the 1962/62 season.  Again, proceeds will go to the GDF.

To make donations to the raffle or the memorabilia sale/auction, please contact Phil Ellis on 07710 937103.

Really good to see the Trust running a fund raiser at the Walks, the GDF is something everyone can get behind whether they are a Trust member or not.  Hoping for a good turnout and a good boost to the GDF.

Have I managed to miss it , or is there no mention of the quiz night on either the clubs Facebook page nad main page, or on the FOTL Facebook page? I would have thought of all the years of griping about the trust not helping the club they would have rushed to advertise an event that is to raise valuable funds for the club? :dontknow:

Maybe they need some form of incentive to advertise it.

I wasn't aware of this.

I've now asked Club Media team if they would be kind enough to advertise the event on the Clubs website and Facebook page.

Is it on the trust's Facebook page? Not seen it advertised on there twitter page?

Should be on all the Facebook pages connected with the club. It is helping with the finances after all.

Let's hope it's well attended.

Huge thank you to all involved in putting tonight's quiz on, just shows what happens when people work together, really good, well organised evening.  No doubt in time the Trust will announce how much was raised to be added to the Ground Development Fund, looking forward to more events like this in the future

The Quiz night organised by the Blue & Gold Trust on Friday the 28th of June at the Football Stadium was a great success.
 A big thankyou to the 47 people who participated in the quiz and to those who supported the raffle and who made donations to the Ground Development Fund (GDF) on the night. The event raised a total of £431:50 for the GDF. 
A special thanks to Barrett Batchelor Mortgage Services and ARC Fabrications (King's Lynn) for sponsoring the event. 
Thanks also to Richard Simper for preparing the tables etc, and to Zoe for serving behind the bar. Thanks also to those who donated raffle prizes. 
Anyone wishing to donate to the GDF can do so via PAYPAL by clicking on the thermometer on the home page and pressing the donate button.
