A quiz night organised by members of the Sutton Coldfield branch of Amnesty International raised £400 for human rights work.
The event, at Sutton Town Football Club in Coles Lane, Sutton Coldfield attracted more than 60 people.
Entry costs and raffle tickets led to the group raising £400, one of their highest totals since the annual quiz was launched more than 30 years ago.
All the money raised will go to Amnesty International’s work supporting prisoners of conscience imprisoned for their beliefs across the globe.
Sutton Coldfield group chairman and quizmaster Andrew Hindle said:
“The people of Sutton Coldfield and beyond have again shown great generosity in supporting us at our quiz night.
“It was a great night and it was wonderful that we were able to raise so much money for Amnesty International. A big thank you to everyone who has supported us.”
The Sutton Coldfield branch of Amnesty International meets on the second Tuesday of every month (except August) at 8pm in the Conference Centre, Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 69 Lichfield Road, Sutton Coldfield, B74 2NU. New members are always given a warm welcome. For more information on the Sutton group see www.amnesty.org.uk/groups/sutton-coldfield
