This evening, PEAS will hold our biggest ever fundraiser to launch our goal to create 100,000 sustainable places in PEAS schools by 2017.
The quiz will see the best and brightest employees from city firms such as Deloitte, ING and Barnett Waddingham, questioned by Jeremy Paxman, famous for hosting University Challenge and Newsnight. Deborah Meaden, entrepreneur and Dragon’s Den judge, says: “I have a real competitive streak so I’m looking forward to seeing who else my team is up against.” She will join Louis Theroux, and other special guests including actor Larry Lamb, BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner, Iron Maiden leader singer Bruce Dickinson and Apprentice advisor Nick Hewer.
PEAS hopes that An Education will raise over £40,000 in funds vital to launch new schools in Uganda and Zambia. John Rendel, PEAS’ CEO said: "PEAS hopes to open five schools in Uganda and one in Zambia in February, and this event has helped to raise much needed funds to help equip the schools with blackboards, desk and chairs, so that each school can give its students the best education from the beginning."
