A few tables remain for a trivia night to assist Clare Holman with the running costs of her "Stepping Out" halfway house she has set up in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

The former St Mary's Central School and Wellington High School student has spent more than five years assisting underprivileged Cambodian children.

Clare opened her halfway house in 2011. It provides safe accommodation for youths when they leave the orphanages.

The support provided enables them to complete their education and secure employment. It also gives them the skills to lead independent, self-sufficient lives.

There are currently 18 young people fully-supported by Clare's program.

Five now attend university, including two studying medicine. It is only through the generous support of the Wellington community that the halfway house has been able to continue its valuable work.

Clare will be visiting Wellington for two weeks before returning to Cambodia.

This will enable her to attend the trivia night organised by Kate Kiss on Saturday May 31.

The trivia night will be held at the Wellington Soldiers Memorial Club on Saturday May 31 commencing at 6.30pm and is to help raise funds for the "Stepping Out" halfway house.

Some terrific items have been donated for auction including a Waratahs 2014 team jersey, signed and framed. It is currently on display at Wellington Ag n Vet.

Anyone wishing to attend can contact Kate Kiss on 0427 466 217 to book a table or purchase tickets in the major raffle.

Those who cannot attend the trivia night but wish to donate towards Clare's project can contact her mother, Di Holman on 6845 2092.
