Organisers of Saturday’s emergency services quiz night raised over £950 for the RNLI and Ladies Lifeboat Guild committee member, Ce Hicks, says she is delighted.

The evening, at the Bell Rock Hotel, mixed ‘The Krypton Factor’ with ‘The Generation Game.’

The Fire crew won the challenge and were presented with crowns and a chamber pot specially made by Hannah Barclay.

Organisers hope that it will be contested next year.

Second place went to the Lifeboat, the Police came third and Coastguards gallantly accepted the wooden spoons for coming fourth.

Ce says there were some memorable moments, when the Fire crew nearly didn’t make it to the starting block, as Elmo wouldn’t fit into his superhero outfit.

Ce says she’s grateful to all supporters, Chris and June, Dan and Shirley for the use of the hotel and Tom Scott for comparing the night.

Next in the Guild’s fundraising calendar will be some water-based events on Lifeboat Day on June 23rd.
