Charities benefit from quiz night

The Broad Arrow Lodge has handed more than $7,000 to three Bermuda charities.

The group, based on Hamilton's Reid Street, raised the cash from a quiz night at city bar Docksiders earlier this year.

It has been split between the Summerhaven residential home for the disabled, the Women's Resource Centre and youth adventure charity Outward Bound.

Broad Arrow Worshipful Master Martin Weekes said: “Every lodge is encouraged to do something for a charity throughout the year and these were our three adopted charities for the year.”

The quiz was held in March, hosted by veteran quizmaster Mike Bishop, and included prizes, raffles and an auction.

Docksiders owner Reed Young donated $5 from every special three course meal sold to entrants, as well as $1 from every drink sold on the night.

Donated prizes — some of which were valued in the thousands of dollars — include tea for four with Governor George Fergusson at Government House.
