Rotarians Gail Woodford and Patrick Leake on the Cranleigh Rotary Stand in the Village Hall as part of our campaign to increase awareness of the Club in the local community.
Cranleigh Rotary’s ever-popular annual quiz was run this year for the benefit of Cranleigh in Bloom and we were delighted to welcome a near-record 20 teams of players, with 122 people ready and willing to test their knowledge.
A most enjoyable evening was had by all and the animated nature of the event left the questioner almost inaudible during parts of the evening!
The event was a great success and the final result surprised all concerned. At the end of the hard fought contest, two teams turned out to be joint winners: The Historians, led by Michael Miller, and the Crew of the Black Pig, led by Caroline Todman.
All members of the winning teams will share the trophy for twelve months and they also received a bottle of wine each, kindly provided by Pernod Rickard UK.
The event raised a total of £740 net. The proceeds of the raffle (£279) will be donated to Cranleigh in Bloom, in support of the village floral displays this year, and the remainder will go to various Rotary charities.
Our sincere thanks go to all who supported the quiz this year, including those who kindly donated prizes for the raffle, and Pernod Rickard, who donated the 24 bottles of wine that were distributed to the members of the winning teams.
Thanks also to all the shopkeepers in Cranleigh High Street who featured our advertising materials in their windows. We look forward to next year’s event!
