Quiz masters raise cash for char­ity

Rutherglen Reformer - - Memory Lane - Edel Ke­nealy

An im­pres­sive £500 was raised when Cam­bus­lang folk put their think­ing caps on and took part in the Ro­tary club’s an­nual char­ity quiz.

Kick­ing off in Kirkhill Bowl­ing Club on May 20, the event was com­pered by Kenny Fin­nie, who took on the role of quiz master in the ab­sence of Jonathan Cock­ayne. Jonathan did, how­ever, sub­mit the ques­tions – some easy and oth­ers im­pos­si­ble.

Teams were quizzed on a wealth of top­ics, with many stum­bling on the Dis­ney round, fall­ing foul to Jonathan’s knowl­edge on the Aris­to­cats and Steam­boat Wil­lie.

Team five was named the even­tual win­ner, but ev­ery­one was re­warded for their ef­forts with a buf­fet sup­per and the chance for bet­ter luck in the Ro­tary raf­fle. Prizes from Ur­ban Al­fresco, Light and Dew, The Tea Bay, Pan­dora’s Box and The Auld Bag Com­pany helped boost sales of raf­fle tick­ets and con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of the evening.

The Ro­tary Club thanked the Sand­wich Fac­tory for sup­ply­ing the buf­fet.

The gen­eros­ity of lo­cal busi­nesses and those who at­tended the event saw £500 raised, which will go to char­i­ties sup­ported by the Ro­tary Club of Cam­bus­lang.
