COMMUNITY quiz events have helped raise a whopping £5,000 for Loddon and Chedgrave Jubilee Hall.

The venue may soon be the best-dressed in south Norfolk with a rolling programme under way to refurbish the bar, lounge and hall itself.

Alan Mason, the quiz organiser said: “24 teams, consisting of over 160 contestants rose to the challenge of our third fundraising quiz night, held on November 28 resulting in a cumulative sum in excess of £5,000, which will be used to bring the hall decor and standards into the 21st century.”

Quizmaster Gavin Dare travelled from Hertfordshire to deliver a selection of brain-teasing questions in his usual fast-paced style. During the interval teams dined on fish and chips, and ham and cheese ploughman's supplied by local caterers, while a band of willing helpers took drink orders and waited on tables.

The winning team Piaggio scored 121 from a maximum of 133 points.

The quiz was well supported by the local and business community with more than £500 of sponsorship. A further £400 was raised from the raffle alone.

Mr Mason, an employee of Barclays Bank got the company to donate £750 towards the event. Under its £4£ scheme, it will be doubled to £1,750.
