Tickets have started to sell for our popular Two Lips charity quiz night, back after a year’s break on Tuesday, May 12.

As in 2012 and 2013 the quiz will be held at St Norbert’s Church Hall in St Thomas’ Road, Spalding.

Tickets are £8 per person and include a fish and chip supper provided by Sheddy’s.

Teams can be a minimum of four and maximum of eight people.

There will be prizes for the winners, a raffle on the night and the chance to bid on a souvenir miniature cricket bat and autograph book, both signed by England cricketer Matt Prior during his recent visit to Spalding Grammar School.

Raffle prizes already include a portrait sitting with professional photographer Veena Cornish, a bottle of vodka donated by Paul and Lorraine McDermott, a Sunday lunch for two at Spalding Lifestyle and an Amelia and Friends pony set.

The quiz, which is 6.30pm for a 7pm start, is once again supporting the Rotary Club of Spalding and Welland’s Two Lips Appeal.

The annual appeal is this year supporting PHAB, the NSPCC and Macmillan Cancer Support. There is a licensed bar and the evening should be over by around 10pm.

Free Press and Spalding Guardian editor Jeremy Ransome said: “I would like to thank St Norbert’s for the hire of the hall, Sheddy’s for providing the tasty suppers and D&M Sports of Vine Street, Spalding for providing the bat for Matt to sign.

“Also, all those who have bought tickets and donated raffle prizes so far.

“We still need to sell more tickets and receive more raffle prizes so please support this great cause.”

You can buy your tickets from our front office at Priory House in The Crescent, Spalding (please see page 16 for opening times) or by calling Denise Vickers on 01775 765400. Please note, we can only accept cash.

If anyone is willing to sponsor the event by offering a raffle prize, we would be very grateful. Please call us on 01775 765400 if you can help.
