IT may have clashed with an England match in Euro 2012, but Gosberton Patient Link’s third quiz night was the best attended yet.
Chairman Jacquie Field and vice-chairman Mick Pell and the rest of the Gosberton Patient Participation Group committee were slightly concerned when they realised their timing was slightly off, but they need not have worried.
About 80 people went to Quadring Village Hall on Friday to tackle questions from quiz mistress Margaret Wright and tuck into a fish and chip supper from Jack’s fish and chip shop at Donington.
The night raised between £275 and £300 towards equipment not provided by the NHS for Gosberton Medical Centre, such as extra blood pressure monitors and a skeleton to assist doctors when discussing joint problems with patients.
Mick said: “It’s an excellent social event and we had a good cross-section of people from all over the place.
“We were concerned when we realised it clashed with an England football match but the young ladies came to have a girls’ night out.”
