More than 90 people from Bentworth, Medstead and Shalden went to the Name That Hit For Ukraine evening hosted by Shalden residents Ian and Loraine Champness.
Quizmaster Ian asked the table teams to identify the artist, the title and the year each record played was in the Top 20 after Loraine had played 20 seconds of each one.
There were three rounds, each of 20 hits from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. The title of each song was often sung out aloud by the enthusiastic audience, so while there were prizes for the winners the aim of the evening was very much about raising funds to help the Ukrainian refugees.
Lisa Hillan – who is hosting a refugee from Kiev, Biola Ameri, and her two daughters – came along just before the quiz started.
To great applause for her moving words, Biola thanked the audience for Britain’s support for Ukraine and thanked everybody for attending the event.
Mr Champness handed over a cheque for £1,500 to the Alton & District Community Resilience Fund, which will distribute it among the 20 Ukrainian refugee families living in and around Alton. Lisa Hillan and Biola Ameri both sit on the resilience fund committee.
A donation of £500 has been made to North End Baptist Church in Portsmouth, the charity behind Portsmouth Stands By Ukraine, which is helping Ukrainian refugees in the city.
Mr Champness said: “We hope the proceeds will go in some small way to help those Ukrainian refugees resettled in the Alton and nearby area and show our support for Ukraine.”
