The Paradise Working Men's Club held the event on Saturday, 4th of March at the club's premises on Martin Street in Burnley, with a trio of generous friends handing over the impressive final total to the care provider.

Peter Whittaker, Terri Baldwin, and James Allan raised a total of £1,660 for Pendleside on the quiz night, with £830 raised through the quiz proper and £830 matched by Terri’s employer, Barclays Bank.

Peter said: “We had a great night and raised more than double what we raised at last year’s Quiz Night. Thanks to everyone who came and helped raise a great amount of money and also Barclays for matching it," he added. "We will definitely be organising another in the future”.
