The well-attended quiz and raffle took place at the Stakesby Arms in Whitby, and it was a great night with 18 teams taking part.

The raffle was a huge success with around 50 prizes kindly donated by local businesses.

Mr Summerson said: “It’s our third year doing it and it’s taken off more and more every year.

“Last year we raised £530 so we were delighted with the total. Thank you to everyone who supported the event.”

Saint Catherine’s fundraiser Sian Cromack: “Thank you Garry and everyone involved – all the money will go towards looking after patients and their families, both in the hospice and at home.”

Saint Catherine’s provides a number of services, free of charge, to patients in Whitby.

The hospice covers a wide area of more than 1,600 square miles, including Whitby, Scarborough, Filey, Hunmanby and Ryedale. Its role is to look after people with a terminal or life limiting illness.
