Friday’s Quiz Night 2014 was our best yet. 30 teams – ranging from hardened quiz enthusiasts to kind-hearted but baffled-looking Link supporters – battled it out over 10 rounds, plus a fiendish picture round aimed at those who watch too much TV. Serious quizzers were hoping to unseat the reigning champions, the redoubtable Runners and Non-runners, and it looked as though these were going to lose the crown: but they just squeezed one point ahead of arch-rivals Grinling Gibbons and Searchers on the very last round.
Michael Foster auctioned several interesting lots in his inimitable style, raising £355; the raffle raised £292; and the special Kiley’s Karpets raffle another £160. Kiley’s team had a bet on with their mates from Easylet, with the loser putting another £100 into the Link’s funds… Easylet have sworn to get their revenge next year. All in all, the evening raised over £1600. A HUGE thank-you to everyone who helped to make the evening such a success. It helps us edge a bit nearer towards our goal of £15,000 just to get a secure wall built around the health centre.
