Charity Quiz


‘100 happy quizzers - a good number of Hertfordshire Bowlers and their friends and families - gathered at a restaurant

in Bushey on 15th January for a bumper Quiz Supper.

Brains were exercised - dare we say worn out - and the taste buds heightened by both the quiz and the supper.

The ‘heads and tails’ game was won by Jennie Redford of Harpenden BC and John Sellek of Bushey BC outbid

the field in an auction of a huge bottle of vodka.

‘Fines’ and a collection of loose change by John Hay of Garston BC added significantly to the pot.

A gigantic raffle - well supported by giving prizes and buying tickets - yielded £378 on its own.

Ahead of the event, the profits were further boosted by donations - including some from bowlers from other counties -

 and at the end of the evening a cheque for £1500 was forwarded to The Teenage Cancer Trust ,

the chosen charity of young Jack Bunting of Potten End BC.

The photograph shows the Bunting family - and John Hay’s stomach! - eagerly awaiting the drawing of the raffle.’
