A fund-raising quiz night at the Queen’s Head Hotel in Rothbury raised £743 for Alzheimer’s Research UK.

Organiser Margaret Hedley said: “Bill Armstrong, who takes our quiz regularly on a Wednesday, was our quizmaster for the evening and it was a full house of nine teams taking part. Team Cut Above were winners and kindly contributed their winnings back to the cause. The raffle consisted of 43 prizes donated by local businesses and lots of other kind people.”

Margaret thanked the four businesses which sold raffle tickets and promoted the evening – the Queen’s Head, Newcastle House, Tomlinson’s and the Woodland Stove Centre – the staff at the Queen’s Head and everyone else involved in the evening.
