Weymouth’s scenic Custom House Quay was buzzing with excitement on Wednesday as the EBIKE Café hosted a special charity quiz night in support of Weldmar. The event saw a remarkable turnout of 80 participants, making up no less than 18 spirited teams, that filled the café with laughter and competitive spirit.

Josephine Parker, co-owner of the EBIKE Cafe, says, “What a night! We anticipated a good turnout, but the enthusiasm and energy surpassed all expectations. It was heartwarming to see our customers come together for such a fun-filled evening in support of Weldmar Hospicecare. Weldmar holds a special place in my heart. They looked after my Mum during her short illness at their Inpatient Unit and with their hospice at home service. I will never forget the kindness, compassion and care they gave and showed her.”

The quiz’s victors, The A-Team, who not only claimed the coveted first prize of £50 but also generously donated all their winnings directly to Weldmar. Their selfless gesture, combined with proceeds from ticket sales, raffle and share of the bar take, culminated in £1,010 being raised on the night.

James O’Neill, Marketing and Communications Lead at Weldmar, who compiled and presented the quiz, says “Well done to Josephine and the team at EBIKE Cafe for putting on such a great evening to support Weldmar. There was a really fun atmosphere all evening, and I really enjoyed returning to the role of quizmaster – there was plenty of audience participation along the way! Thanks to all those who came along, because every person contributed towards a wonderful total to donate to Weldmar, which will help provide specialist end of life care for both those with a life limiting illness and their loved ones.”

Fiona Hansford, Fundraising Lead, added “We are delighted to have been supported by the EBIKE Cafe’s quiz – what a brilliant turnout for a fantastic cause! A huge thank you to Josephine and the team for all their hard work on this event and to the winning team, ‘The A-Team’, who very kindly donated their cash prize. We are thrilled to continue the partnership with EBIKE Cafe into the rest of the year, with lots more exciting events and activities planned together.”

The cafe and its customers have raised thousands of pounds for the charity in the last couple of years. Customers donate daily with the cafe’s popular  Weldmaruccino, where 10p from every cup sold of the cafe’s rebranded cappuccinos goes to Weldmar Hospicecare.

EBIKE Cafe is open daily from 9am daily. You can relax and enjoy healthy food and drinks on Weymouth’s iconic Harbourside. There is parking for those arriving by cycle and you can even recharge your bike at the ebike charging points. In addition, customers will also find the home of Specialized in Dorset, the iconic Californian market-leading eBike brand. You can even take one for a spin and find out why so many people love their eBike so much. Josephine and Peter tell all their customers before they take a test ride. Remember, it’s you, only faster. They are located on the ground floor of the prestigious Deheers Building, 9A Custom House Quay, Weymouth DT4 8BG.
