QUIZ NIGHT 24th FEBRUARY 2024

 

This was a very successful evening, enjoyed by a sell-out 80 guests, with some great team performances, resulting in a fantastic profit on the night of £697. As always, our fundraising events give a great deal of pleasure to many local folk and help to keep our church and its activities in the forefront of people’s minds. We were very lucky to have Jonathan and his family run the quiz, free of charge, apart from a free fish & chip supper. Our profit from last year's quiz was £487 - an increase of £210 or 43% !! Thank you to everyone who helped organise and run this event and to everyone who attended.
