Our annual quiz night was a sell-out success for the second year running. Keen contestants from all over Salisbury and beyond gathered in St Elizabeth’s Hall in Exeter Street to pit their wits against opposing teams.
Question master was Annie Riddle from the Salisbury Journal and a great selection of raffle prizes were generously donated by local businesses and services. The winning team was ‘Chorus Girls’ – members of the Kate Edgar Singers – and the evening raised a total of £1100 for local charities. This amount will be shared between EdUKaid, supporting a women’s social enterprise project in Tanzania and the Salisbury Women’s Refuge, where funds will be used to help keyworkers accompany women residents travelling to attend court hearings outside the area.
Club President Lisa Scandling said: “Thanks to everyone for coming along and supporting us, we hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did. Thank you so much for your generosity which has enabled us to raise such a good amount for charity. We are particularly grateful to all the businesses and individuals who donated raffle prizes, which helped to swell the funds raised on the night.”
