ONE HUNDRED Somerset folk challenged their general knowledge last Friday (January 25, 2019) to help raise funds for charity during a quiz evening at a farm shop in the county.
The Charity Quiz & Supper Evening in aid of League of Friends Musgrove Park Hospital was held at Rumwell Farm Shop & cafe.
Anne Mitchell, Joint Owner of the farm shop said: “This was our first quiz night of the year in aid of League of Friends Musgrove Park Hospital, which is one of our charities of the year. We raised £325 from entry fees for the quiz and also by hosting a raffle. We would like to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone who came along. ”
“Our Charity Quiz & Supper Evenings have proven very popular with our customers over the past few years and they are a great chance for families, friends and work colleagues to get together for some healthy competition.”
“The winning team this time was Table 13 and each team member got to take home a hamper and also the Rumwell Cup. We hope they come back to our next quiz night of the year on Friday, May 10 to defend their title.”
League of Friends Musgrove Park Hospital was formed in 1959 by the Rotary Club of Taunton. It promotes voluntary service in the hospital and raises funds to buy extra equipment over and above what the NHS can afford.
The charity runs a shop in the Duchess Building and a trolley service around the wards, supplying patients, visitors and staff with some of the little extras to make life more comfortable.
Bastable Lodge opposite A&E was also built by the charity to accommodate relatives of acute patients free of charge in times of crisis. Hundreds of individuals and families have benefitted from the lodge.
