Our FUNd Raiser of Saturday 7 October
We are delighted to announce that the Eighth Banter & Batter Quiz held in the Village Hall on the evening of 7 October was a great success, raising £580 for the Holcot Village Hall Association. This was despite a late fall in numbers by two teams, due to illness etc. An excellent result, raising around £50 more than last year’s event despite missing those other regular teams who we hope to see again next year. Some of you may have noticed the smart new tables which were bought with funds raised at our previous quizzes.
Special thanks to those quizzers who were unable to attend at the time who kindly donated their £10 ticket cost or were quizzers who did not have a meal but gave their £5 meal cost, raising £105 toward the total. This kindness was most appreciated.
The next Banter & Batter Quiz is planned for Saturday 10 March 2018 so please make a note of the date and reserve your place with Jackie & Deryck on 01604 781131. The quizzes are usually a sell-out with places being limited to 14 tables of 6 quizzers, so don’t delay and get your names down today. This is something to put in your traditional diary, calendar or handy ‘iPlanner’ to look forward to at the end of the winter ahead!
The ‘Friends of Holcot Playing Field’ charity will benefit from next spring’s Ninth Banter & Batter Quiz. The Friends are raising funds to replace the old play equipment removed from the village playground area with new (expensive) modern play equipment to benefit our village’s children into the future,
Finally, thank you to all who came along to help put the FUN back into FUNd raising. SEE YOU IN THE SPRING! YOU BET!
(Personally, I liked the Cryptic Phrases Picture Round which was ‘downright ‘ excellent and who knew that the Hickory tree grew Pecan Nuts anyway?…… Deryck)
