AROUND ninety or so Pudsey Bear supporters turned out for the Rotary Club of Thurrock Gateway’s "Children in Need Mega Quiz" event at St Joseph’s Hall, Stanford Le Hope on Saturday (November 15th).
In excess of Â£750 was raised from the Mega Quiz,Pudsey Bear raffle and ‘heads’n’tails fundraisers and after a gruelling 11 round quiz hosted by Quiz-Master Chris Meads the eventual winners received their prizes and a massive round of applause from the brain weary audience.
Even the ‘Inglorious Losers’ took their punishment with pride…
Polly Billington and Mike Le Surf were in attendance, though sadly their team did not take the winners prize on this occasion and both were happy to feast on the Children in Need Cup Cakes.
A spokesperson said: "The Rotary Club of Thurrock Gateway on behalf of ‘Children in Need 2015’ would like to thank all their supporters for making this event such a resounding success and we look forward to seeing you all at our ‘Race Night’ in February 2015.
"Our club meets on the first three Mondays of each month 7pm for 7.15pm @ The Park Inn by Radisson Thurrock, North Stifford, RM16 5UE-
All are welcome-"Come on Down…"
