The seventh annual quiz was, once again, held in the hall at Groombridge St Thomas’ School. Altogether the evening raised £878, a wonderful total which will be added to the money to be sent to Aquinoe at the beginning of December.
Some of our “regulars” were unwell or had prior engagements so couldn’t, unfortunately, be with us, but the evening was still very enjoyable. Nine teams participated this year, which included some new faces.
“Does Grey Matter”, the reigning champions, were once again the winners, although it was touch and go as “All the Trimmings” and “Coddled Eggs” were breathing down their necks. Coddled Eggs were hoping to improve their position, having been third at every quiz night.
We were extremely lucky to be able to auction a voucher for a three to four day break at the Warner Leisure Hotel at Holme Lacy, which raised £320. We are very grateful to the generous donor. The photos look fantastic in the brochure so the “winner” will have a wonderful few days there.
Many thanks also to the people who donated all of the prizes for the raffle, which was well supported and brought in £152.
We sold some of Tina’s lovely hand-made goods once again and this raised £49.50.
As ever, a big “thank you” to all who participated and made the evening such a success.
