A great afternoon of fun was enjoyed by everyone who came to Homecall’s summer afternoon quiz at The Cooden Beach Sports and Social Club.
The event raised £362 for the local charity with the help of a raffle, which saw many generous donations of raffle prizes on the day,
Leah Norman, from Homecall, said: “Our quiz mistress Chris began the afternoon leading off with a wide range of new questions and categories with topics set to test every ability.
“Chris was well supported by her team of markers and scorers who did a sterling job checking all the quiz papers in good time.
“Afternoon tea included a special 30th Anniversary celebration cake and homemade cakes were served during the interval giving everyone a chance to refresh their brain cells ready for the final rounds of quiz questions.
“All at Homecall would especially like to thank Chris for her hard work which provided everyone with such a delightful afternoon.
“A big thank you is also due to our excellent team of volunteers who worked so hard behind the scenes in order to provide everyone with a delicious afternoon tea.
“We would especially like to thank everyone who came and enjoyed the afternoon quiz. Their support enables us to continue to help blind and partially sighted people living in and around the Bexhill area.
