The Charlton Athletic Disabled Supporters Association (CADSA) enjoyed a recent fundraising quiz night at The Valley in association with WJ King Group.
CADSA was formed in June 1999 to represent the interest of the disabled supporters of Charlton Athletic and the quiz night on January 31st was held to raise funds for the Greenwich Talking Newspaper which provides a weekly audio cassette of local news and events to the partially sighted and blind residents of Royal Greenwich.
WJ King are the official motability partners of the Charlton Athletic Community Trust and Jeff Conway, WJ King’s Group Sales Manager said: “We are delighted to continue to play our part in supporting the Charlton Athletic Disabled Supporters Association Quiz Night, something we’ve done for the past three years.
“We are pleased that our support has contributed to CADSA’s aim in raising the necessary funds for such a great cause as the Greenwich Talking Newspaper. We look forward to developing our relationship with CADSA further’.
Meanwhile, CADSA committee member Heather Robertson said: “I am thrilled to say that the quiz night was a complete success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone present.
“We had an excellent attendance of over 100 people, including a team from WJ King, and the hot food and real ale provided by Charlton Athletic were enjoyed by many present. A donation from the proceeds of the evening totalling just over £700 will go to the Greenwich Talking Newspaper with the rest helping CADSA to continue to support fans with disabilities of all sorts and to improve facilities for them.
“Charlton legends Steve Gritt and Brian Kinsey also attended the Quiz Night and on behalf of CADSA I would like to say a huge thank you to Jeff Conway and his colleagues at WJ King for their very kind support, it is always much appreciated.’’
