Two Suffolk farmers, Philip Kidner and Gerald Godfrey, have organised a quiz night to help raise funds for others who have been affected by the floods in the northern part of the county this winter.
“It really brings it home to you when you see it for your own eyes and in the media,” said Philip. “Being part of the farming community you can really relate to their worries and struggles. We decided it was the best thing to do – to raise some money for R.A.B.I, and this is where the quiz idea came from.”
13 teams took part in the quiz at their local pub, The Buck Inn at Flixton, with general knowledge rounds and scoring after every other round. Half-time refreshments were kindly provided by the landlord, Philip Murry.
The winning team was Homersfield Z closely followed by Underwater Sailors. A total of £618.10 was raised from the quiz and a raffle which will go into the emergency fund to help those who need it most. A huge thank you to Philip and Gerald for running the event.
