QMV hosts trivia night to raise funds for The Flemington Homework Club
QMV recently held our annual trivia night to raise funds for The Flemington Homework Club. We raised $6,829 for this worthy cause and it would not have been possible without the generosity and intellectual horsepower of our guests! The chair of our corporate social responsibility group David Mehmed would like to extend his sincere appreciation to everyone who took part.
The Flemington Homework Club were awarded ‘Most Outstanding Community Run Out of School Hours Learning Support Program’ at the Centre for Multicultural Youth MY Education Awards 2018.
The winning team captained by Jonathan Stefannoni, ‘Error 304: Table Not Found’ (304 was their table number) snatched a controversial victory from Mark Vaughan's team, ‘We’ll sort it out later’ (sort out their team name later) who tied first place. After announcing the tie, Judge Ivan from Funky Bunch Trivia said he was accepting bribes. Error 304 paid up and were instantly declared winners!
We would like to offer special thanks to QMV’s valued friends at TelstraSuper, NAB, Plum, UniSuper, JBWere, MLC and AustralianSuper for your very kind support.
Thank you also to Funky Bunch Trivia and the Metropolitan Hotel for all your hard work and for making the night a wonderful success! Anthony Forbes and Kirsty Sinclair also get special mention for running the auction with no notice :-)
It is a privilege to support the children and young people of Flemington with their homework in the hope that they continue learning, enjoy learning and realise their full potential. The homework group supports approximately 25 young people each evening, aged between seven and 17 years.
Most of the young people are part of the African community in Flemington and have no access to computers, internet and teaching assistance after school. Their parents are extremely grateful for the support shown to help equip their children with the knowledge and skills they themselves are unable to help provide.
The Flemington Homework Club is a part of the African Program run by Jesuit Social Services. They are a volunteer-based program which provide peer support and mentoring to the children and young people living in public housing in Flemington and nearby suburbs. To get involved please visit jss.org.au/ or call Kara Mackay, Co-ordinator of the Settlement Program. There are many ways to help including donations, volunteering and workplacegiving.
