OUTCOME OF QUIZ NIGHT IN  AID OF LIGHTHOUSE WOMEN’S AID IN APRIL 2013

A good time  was had by all who participated in the Quiz Night in April.  We had ten teams competing with team  names including:  ‘Blank Faces’; ’14  to 84’; ‘Not Just a Pretty Face’ and ‘Cornflakes’.  How do teams select their  names?

There was lot  of discussion, head scratching, licking of pencils and definitely a volley of  ‘oh no’ when Mark Murphy read out  the answers.  Mark, who you know  from BBC Radio Suffolk, was our Quiz Master, as he is Patron of Lighthouse. 

We raised in  the region of £400 and our thanks go to everyone who helped and took  part.

The winning  team took home the wine and the last team took home the ever popular decorated  Soroptimist wooden spoons (see photo).   Did they do it deliberately?

There will be  another Quiz Night, so watch out for information. 

 

In September 2012 we held our annual Book Reading, our book being ‘The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox’ by Maggie O’Farrell.  As we mostly obtain copies of the book via the library or from boot fairs, members donate £5 towards a charity or project.

For 2013 our chosen book is ‘The Purple Hibiscus’ by Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche and again funds raised will go to a worthy cause.

Cookie and Coffee Morning was held on Saturday 25th August 2012 in Woodbridge to raise money for Water Aid and Hillcreast School (India).  All donations to Water Aid before the end of August were matched by the government.
