PROMISE AUCTION & QUIZ NIGHT
Here at Epiacum we decided to hold a Promise Auction and Quiz at The Turk's Head in Alston to raise money for Children in Need.
A great night was had with a lot of laughs along the way. The promises and auction items were very varied to say the least, ranging from 'lamb chops' to 'a day on a narrow boat'! There was even a 'slave' to bid for. Bidding was brisk and along with the money from the quiz, the total raised on the night was £278.00 which we were delighted with.
Auctioneer for the night was John McGough and our quizmaster was Paul Mercer who even donned a toga to get into the swing of things.
A hamper which was full of 'Christmassy' goodies was the prize for the winning team.
We would like to say a big thank you to Tom and his staff at The Turk's Head and everyone else who supported us by offering promise/auction items and also items for the hamper.
Thanks also to those who took part in the quiz and bid in the auction helping to make this a successful night by raising money for Children in Need.
