Dear Members and Supporters of the Oxford León Association
The Oxford León Association is holding another Quiz for León on Friday 26 February, it would be great if you could join us! We are delighted that our musician friends from León, Paco Luis Vega and Franklin Martinez and Bochinche Tropical will be joining us from León and playing their wonderful upbeat Latin American music and also a song from the Misa Campesina!
Our Quiz Maestra will be Jan Marshall, who has kindly written the Quiz and our Quiz Maestro will be the ebullient John Tanner! There will be five rounds of five questions each, the Quiz will take about an hour and answers given as we go along, the musicians will play at the start, the interval and the end.
To those who have supported our previous Quizzes, we have been amazed by your generosity and our two charities in León – Nuevas Esperanzas and Nicaragua Education, Culture and Arts Trust – have thanked us for this vital support at this very difficult time in Nicaragua. At the last Quiz on 10 December, we also raised funds for Bishop Harold Dixon’s appeal to help the hurricane stricken Caribbean coast of Nicaragua, where some communities lost everything, the Bishop was extremely grateful. Thanks to your generosity we were able to send £900 to the Bishop’s appeal, which bought food for the people; £800 to Nuevas Esperanzas to support remote villages who had lost nearly all their crops and where roads and water pipelines were damaged, and £500 to NECAT to support poor children’s education and their community in an impoverished area of León.
We hope you will have a fun time at the Quiz, relax in your Box and bring your own bottle and nibbles, maybe dance to the music and have a go at the questions!
There will be no prizes and no entry fees, only the kudos of winning! We hope that you will be able to make a donation to OLAT at:
