A QUIZ raised more than £3,000 to help disadvantaged children across Worcestershire.

There were 140 guests who enjoyed the lively evening at Wooden Spoon Worcestershire’s Saint George's Day Quiz.

A fancy dress English theme was enhanced by quizmaster Jon Fraser taking on his role as Henry VIII with much gusto.

The event was held at Worcester Rugby Club's Westons Fields home in Offerton Lane, Hindlip, with traditional sausage and mash served up.

Overall quiz winners were the Mike Bassett Barmy Army team made up of Paul and Ali Chester and Worcester News' head of media sales Dale Godliman and his wife Jodie.

Vince Hopkins, chairman of Wooden Spoon Worcestershire, said: “It is a great amount to raise but more importantly all enjoyed the evening which was more of a show which had a quiz attached.

"Jon was outstanding in preparation and his role and thank you to who attended and especially to our sponsors Assure Technology.

"All funds raised will help disadvantaged children across Worcestershire.”

Wooden Spoon Worcestershire has provided more than £280,000 of funding to projects that transform the lives of disadvantaged and disabled children in the community.

It has funded a range of projects from sensory gardens and rooms to learning and play areas.

Wooden Spoon is the children's charity of rugby, working with the sporting community to raise cash.

The grant-making charity funds life-changing projects.
