On the 17th September Chris Milton, Commercial Director, Thatchers, and Ashley Wilson,Commercial Director Wyke Farms, hosted a quiz evening at the Railway Inn, Sandford in support of GroceryAid. Around £3,200 was raised and a brilliant night was had by all.
The evening included a tour of Thatchers site, a quiz for 11 teams with a £250 team donation, a quick fire game of heads & tails game and an auction at the end of the night. Chris Bennet of Exeter Chiefs Rugby Union did an excellent job of compering the evening's entertainment.
The triumphant winners took away cases of cider each which, along with the buffet, were kindly donated by Martin Thatcher. Yeo Valley served up delicious ice cream for dessert, Pepsico contributed drinks and Cadbury, Mars and Wkye Farms all provided auction lots.
With this wining combination of cheese and cider the fun filled evening is set to become a regular feature on the South West Branch event calendar.
