Swapping their usual activities for something more sedentary, Dunoon Hill Runners recently held a charity quiz night to raise funds for two charities previously chosen by a vote of its members: Olly’s Wee Bothy and the Cowal Community Palliative Care team.
The combined brains of the 8 teams in attendance engaged in a hard-fought battle which tested on specialist subjects as well as general knowledge. In addition, a raffle containing lots of excellent prizes donated by local businesses contributed to the proceeds.
The evening resulted in a very impressive £1,140 being raised, which was subsequently rounded up to £1,500 by a donation from club funds. This amount was then split and cheques for £750 each were presented to the two charities.
Dunoon Hill Runners wishes to thank all the members and guests who contributed to these worthwhile causes, Dunoon Lodge 335 for the use of their hall on the night, as well as the many local businesses who kindly donated raffle prizes.
