The an­swers

Marlborough Express - - COMMENT&OPINION -

The Rai Val­ley Leos Club have all the an­swers. Or at least it seems that way af­ter an­other suc­cess­ful quiz night on June 10.

In its third con­sec­u­tive year, the quiz con­tin­ues to prove a pop­u­lar event with lo­cals hop­ing to pitch their wits against teach­ers and other staff.

While the teach­ers did win out again, the real fo­cus was on the $1140 dol­lars raised.

Half the money will be do­nated to vol­un­teer emer­gency ser­vices in the town­ship, while the other half will con­trib­ute to­wards sub­si­dis­ing a num­ber of stu­dent trips and ex­cur­sions at Rai Val­ley Area School.

Club pres­i­dent and year 12 stu­dent from Rai Val­ley Area School, Martinett Gouws, be­lieves the suc­cess of the event is down to ‘‘how well the Leos work to­gether.’’ ‘‘It’s a real team ef­fort,’’ she says.

A spe­cial men­tion should also go out to the Rai Val­ley Tav­ern which kindly do­nated the use of their func­tion room as well as mak­ing a gen­er­ous do­na­tion to­wards the to­tal raised. Thanks should also be given to Ian and Brian Cameron from the Have­lock Lions who con­tinue to pro­vide time and sup­port for the Leos.
