The Manor & Black Rock Grill - Quiz Master Cup Winners

The Quizmaster Cup was won this time by The Manor & Black Rock Grill - Alconbury with a marvellous score of 187 from the 195 questions. They chose C.A.T.S (Childrens’ Acute Transport Services) as the charity that will receive £300 as a result of the win, whilst the team will also win a dozen bottles of wine.

In second place was Lakeside Lodge Golf & Country Club, scoring 186 points, who split their £200 prize money between the two Captains’ charities; Dementia UK and Huntingdon Community Cancer Network. They also win 6 bottles of wine which I suspect will be used for future fundraising raffles!
