Enjoy trivia night in Camden for a good cause

Frustrated with the lack of "decent trivia nights" in Macarthur - and determined to do his bit for the community - Ben Stokes decided to spice up the local trivia scene.

The Harrington Park resident is holding a fundraising event called Trivial Pursuits in Camden at the Camden Civic Centre this Saturday from 6.30pm.

He wants to raise money for youth mental health organisation headspace.

Mr Stokes, a dance teacher and owner of Commotion Performing Arts in Smeaton Grange, said mental health was one of the biggest issues facing Macarthur's youngest residents.

"I see mental health issues a lot with youths and teens at Commotion," he said.

"Like many others, I was the victim of extreme bullying [in my youth].

"Growing up as a gay teen in the Camden area 20 years ago was an isolating and challenging experience and I struggled with depression and low self-esteem."

Mr Stokes said headspace was great because it was very inclusive and was there to help people of all different sexual orientations, races and cultures.

"Something I found growing up was that some of the support available for mental health wasn't very embracing of LGBTQ people, especially what was offered by churches," he said.

"That's why it is so vital to have organisations like headspace."

Despite the important message about mental health, Mr Stokes said the trivia night would not be a downer.

"It's going to be a really fun night raising money for a good cause," he said.

"It won't all be questions about psychology or anything like that, there's going to be plenty of pop culture and questions that young people will know."

Trivia topics will include 80s, 90s and 00s music, film, TV, sport, history and general pop culture.

The event will also include a gourmet picnic hamper auction donated by local Camden eateries.

Mr Stokes is still looking for local businesses to donate prizes.
