Nine teams battled it out at The Sara Lee Trust Quiz and Curry evening held at The Chilli Tree Restaurant, Bexhill last Thursday (March 16) raising a mind boggling £633 for the local charity.

Maria Gonet, Fundraising Manager for the Sara Lee Trust says there was a fantastic atmosphere at the quiz, which was completely sold out. “We are so grateful to everyone who helped make the event such a success and to all those who brought a team along and to everyone who donated prizes for the raffle,” she said.

“The funds raised will help us provide essential care and support to local people living with cancer and other life threatening illnesses.”

Quiz team ‘We are still thinking’ scooped first prize and wooden spoons were presented to the loosing team The Hastings Conquerors.

Maria added: “We would like to say a very big thank you to Dee Blake and the Sara Lee Trust Fundraising Group for organising this event.

“We would also like to thank Saleh Uddin and the fabulous team at The Chilli Tree Restaurant for their generosity and support and our wonderful quiz master Rick Hough who’s questions kept everyone on their toes.”

The Fundraising Group have announced that as the event was such a success they plan to hold another Quiz and Curry evening in the Autumn.
