Relieving stress in rural communities was the aim of a charity evening hosted by two Brigg companies recently.
Brigg based Brown and Co. Property and Business Consultants, along with co-sponsors Peacock and Binnington, agricultural machinery dealers, hosted a rural quiz evening in aid of the Lincolnshire Rural Support Network.
The event held at Elsham was strongly supported by farmers and those from the rural community.
The charity provides pastoral and practical support to rural people. Early indications suggest that nearly £2,500 was raised for the charity, which was described as a great effort and organisers thanked all those involved.
Brown and Co’s Judy Strawson said: “It was excellent that so many turned out for a fun, sociable evening to support such a great cause.
“The team winning the coveted Golden Share were Charlie’s Angels made up of Jonathan Brant, Victoria Brant and Charles Anyan.”
And all the food and beer for the event was locally sourced from This Little Piggy, Tom Woods, Pipers Crisps and Newells of Brigg.
There were four rounds of questions and a picture round, which gave teams a chance to test their grey matter.
Questions covered arable and livestock farming, food, renewable energy, residential lettings, farm machinery and topical issues affecting farmers and the countryside.
The prize giving was followed by a generous raffle with prizes ranging from a toy tractor to a bag of oilseed rape seed to the value of £500 from local seed merchants GFP. Uncle Henry’s, Pink Pig, RN Store Accountants, Field Technique Agronomy, Thomas Bell and Brigg Office Supplies also kindly donated prizes.
