A very enjoyable evening was had by all on Saturday 7th October 2017, when a fun quiz was held in aid of the Rocky Appeal. Serena asked the questions and handled the very excitable crowd with ease. It was not difficult to understand why there was such a buzz throughout as this was no ordinary question and answer session, indeed there was lots to get excited about that evening including the delicious fish and chip supper served during the break.
That however was not all, because centre stage throughout the evening was a large table overflowing with the most amazing collection of prizes for the raffle. It was hard to take in at first sight. Almost forty quality prizes so generously donated by so many companies and individuals, including household items, cash, days out, meals out, treatments and services, beers, wines and spirits, a TV and a fabulous Citizen watch. Needless to say the raffle was a highlight during the evening although other fundraising activities were going on throughout. This included guessing how many sweets in the jar, with the winner taking home the sweets, and the “Pot of Gold” whereby everyone put pound coins with their name stuck to them into the pot, and the winner taking home half of the contents.
Generosity was indeed what the evening was all about, and a big thank you goes out to all who attended and to those who donated prizes. Tickets for the evening’s entertainment were £10, all of which went to the Rocky Appeal, and the club made no charge for that excellent supper! All of which boosted the funds collected on the night to a fabulous total of £2002! Well done everybody.
