AXMINSTER: Quiz raises £1,000 for pool

Thursday, 27 March 2014

Kilmington villagers, volunteers and supporters of Flamingo Pool pulled together to raise £1071.00 at a quiz night in Kilmington Village Hall.
All tickets for the quiz night were sold out well before the event.
Flamingo Pool fundraiser and spokesperson Dana Haydon-Sycamore said: “Although competition was fierce with prizes up for grabs for the winning teams, it was a friendly atmosphere and everyone had fun despite some of the questions challenging even the most able.
“Everyone pulled together to make this fundraiser a success, working as a team to ensure a fun evening and to raise money for the Flamingo Pool. The delicious food was home-made, although recipes were kept a closely guarded secret.”
Pool manager Steve Buxton added: “We would like to thank everyone for supporting this event, especially the volunteers who helped us on the night.
“It shows how a community can pull together, have fun and raise money at the same time.”
