Prize presentation

With a pub quiz, raffle and food available, the night was a great success raising over £360 for the RNLI.

The meat of the evening was the pub quiz - 70 questions to terrify the most hardened pub quiz aficionado, spread over 6 intense rounds, with a number of teams battling for the lion’s share of the points on offer.

By the end of the evening however there was a tie for the lead. The teams The Quizzards, and All at C rose to the top and showed that they were both to be feared in the heady world of the pub quiz. After a thrilling tiebreak The Quizzards demonstrated their greater knowledge and experience, and won the quiz. Winning team members were Chris Nicol, Graeme Nicol, Gavin Haggart, and Andrew Brown.

Our congratulations to the winners on their well deserved prize of a monstrously big bottle of bubbly each, and a cash prize which they immediately donated to Peterhead RNLI.

We would also like to thank the Harbour Lights for providing the venue and the Stovies for the evening, and our regular question master Ian Brownlee.

Key facts about the RNLI

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is the charity that saves lives at sea. Our volunteers provide a 24-hour search and rescue service in the United Kingdom and Ireland from 238 lifeboat stations, including four along the River Thames and inland lifeboat stations at Loch Ness, Lough Derg, Enniskillen and Lough Ree. Additionally the RNLI has more than 1,000 lifeguards on over 240 beaches around the UK and operates a specialist flood rescue team, which can respond anywhere across the UK and Ireland when inland flooding puts lives at risk.

The RNLI relies on public donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. As a charity it is separate from, but works alongside, government-controlled and funded coastguard services. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 our lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved at least 140,000 lives. Volunteers make up 95% of the charity, including 4,600 volunteer lifeboat crew members and 3,000 volunteer shore crew. Additionally, tens of thousands of other dedicated volunteers raise funds and awareness, give safety advice, and help in our museums, shops and offices.
