Quiz raises £500 for St Leonard’s Church

THE annual South Cockerington quiz evening, organised by the members of St Leonard’s Church, was held in the Village Hall at Grimoldby.

It proved to be a most enjoyable evening, when the quiz master, The Rev Chris Turner kept the 72 participants not only puzzling and thinking but entertained as well.

The ladies from St Leonard’s Church had provided a sumptuous buffet supper and contestants were plied with punch all evening.

The highest scoring team, for the second year running, with 80 points, was Miscellany winning Thornton’s chocolates and wine, the booby prize went to The optimists.

Over £500 was raised, which included a very successful raffle with a range of lovely prizes which had been generously donated.

All proceeds will go to the improvement of facilities at St Leonard’s Church, South Cockerington.

East Lindsey District Council have awarded £8,000 to St Leonard’s Church, for their community project of installing toilets and a kitchenette.
