Quiz to raise funds for sports grant scheme

Share this article

A SPORTS quiz is to take place to raise cash for a grants scheme which helps sportspeople in the Whitby area develop their talents.

Local pentathlete twins Amelia and Victoria Hide were among the recipients of the Scarborough and District Sports Council grants scheme which last year saw £2,500 handed out to teams and individuals.

Teams of four are invited to enter the quiz at £10 a team, with great prizes on offer.

Chairman of the sports council, Chris Rhodes, said: “We tried this new venture last year and it proved really successful and seems like a good way of raising funds for the grants scheme.

“It is a good opportunity for sports clubs, work colleagues or friends to go along and take part and raise some funds for local sport.”

To enter a team for the quiz, at Scarborough Bowls Centre on Tuesday 21 February, call Matt Hewison on (01723) 501984.

A raffle will help boost funds further.
