Get your thinking caps on for quiz at Hemel Hempstead school

Students at Longdean School are appealing for quiz gurus to come along to a fundraising event this week in a bid to raise cash for their charity mission.

A group of teenagers who attend the school in Rumballs Lane, Hemel Hempstead, have signed up to the World Challenge educational trip next summer and must raise £2,500 each in order to fly with their peers to San Jose, Costa Rica, and lend a hand to locals.

The quiz – this Friday between 7pm and 9.30pm – is the latest fundraising drive organised by the pupils themselves.

Tickets are available from the school’s finance office in main reception. They cost £5 for adults, £3 for those under 18, £15 for a family of four or £12 for two adults and one child.
