Against the toughest of opposition, Leyland Leader’s quiz team has secured a triple triumph in the town’s Annual Team Brain Quiz – and in three instalments has presented £1050 to Rosemere Cancer Foundation.
This year’s quiz, as ever, was organized extremely efficiently and professionally by Leyland’s 41 Club, supported by Round Table and held at Fox Lane Sports & Social Club.
Once again first prize, along with retention of the impressive Reg Smith Shield, was £350 to the team’s nominated charity. Leyland Leader also won in 2018 and back in 2016 – the team had other commitments and were unable to defend their crown in 2017 due to other commitments.
There were 18 teams involved and, in the closest of contests, Leyland Leader emerged victorious again, ahead of Leyland United Reformed Church in second and third-placed South Ribble Rotary, who also donated their cheque of £150 to Rosemere.
Rebecca Arestidou, Rosemere Cancer Foundation Area Fundraiser, was delighted to receive another cheque from Leyland Leader. She called into Leyland to collect the cheque from team members Keith Bradshaw, Ruth Bradshaw and Bob Fleet.
The fourth member of the quartet, Mansel Pope was out of town. She said:
We are delighted with this donation and very grateful for the ongoing support from Leyland Leader and friends. The money will be put to good use, helping cancer care and developing cancer research in our region.
