Two quizzes posed tough questions and raised vital funds for St Nicholas Hospice Care - as a mini-music festival prepares to hit the high notes for the charity.
A quiz held in memory of mum of two Julie Baker at the Wok ‘n’ Rok, in Lakenheath, brought in £250 for the charity. Julie, who had a daughter Kathleen Shannon, 14, and son Michael Shannon, 13, died at the hospice on February 14.
Organiser Mike Cresswell said: “All proceeds went to the hospice, where Julie sadly passed away, in memory of her wonderful life and at the request of her mother Janet Baker, of Brandon.”
Meanwhile, Dani Standring raised £401.30 from a quiz night at The Cock Horse Inn, in Lavenham, which she runs with Sam Morris. She chose the hospice as it took care her nan Gwen Bristow, who passed away aged 66. Dani said: “The hospice is very close to my heart as it looked after my nan in the last few weeks of her life. Through such a horrendous time all the staff were fantastic at making the situation as good as it could be.”
Wilton Farm, in Hockwold, hosts mini-music festival Beers, Bands and Beat It! on Saturday, June 25 in aid of the hospice. There will be a full line up of music, trade stalls, food vendors, fairground rides, licensed bar, auction and raffle. It is in memory of the grandmother of two of the festival’s organisers - Anne-Marie and and Tracey Ormrod. She was looked after by the hospice before she died in August 2013. Gates open at 1pm.
