A QUIZ and curry night organised by East Hampshire District Council chairman Cllr Adam Carew raised almost £1,000 for the Red Cross appeal for Ukraine.

The Whitehill and Greatham member held it in the newly-refurbished Great Hall at the Forest Community Centre in Bordon last Saturday. Cllr Carew and friends decked it out in the light blue and yellow colours of the Ukrainian flag.

Curry was provided by Abdul Hamid, owner of the award-winning Dhanmondi Restaurant in Whitehill, under the supervision of Sue North.

Eight teams competed for the trophy – an art glass table piece filled with Lindt chocolates donated by Cllr Carew, who devised and ran the quiz which included rounds on Ukraine, crime fiction, Hampshire general knowledge, history and natural history.

The winners were the Mayors and Chairs table, which included the mayor and mayoress of Gosport, former town mayor Colin Leach and former mayor Cllr Sally Pond.
