Keen quizzers help raise over £600 for RNLI Clacton

Held at a local village hall in St Osyth, a short distance from the Clacton station, a night of fun, snacks and quizzing was had by over 150 quizzers of all ages. Not only were there questions to be answered, but a fun round of ‘heads and tails’ and a traditional tombola raffle gave everyone an opportunity for some fun!

Steve Cole, RNLI Clacton fundraising chairman said: 'We would like to thank the St Osyth village hall for supporting our lifeboat station and hosting a quiz in our aid on Saturday evening. There can be nothing better than seeing the community come together for a fun evening whilst raising funds for our lifeboat service. Thanks go to everyone who arranged, ran and enjoyed the evening.'

The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea and as an independent organisation, it relies on the generosity of the local communities. These local fundraising events help it to continue to be ready 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to help anyone who experiences difficulties on our seas.
