Quiz night and a Tesco ‘bag pack’ raise over �500 for mayor’s charity
TWO fund raising events raised �540 for the Mayor of Wisbech’s charity fund.
Mayor and mayoress, Councillor Jonathan and Mrs Susanah Farmer, organised a quiz night in the council chamber and a ‘bag pack’ in Tesco.
Matt Cockin of the Fruit Pig Company based in Weasenham Lane donated the sausage supper at the Quiz Night, and Morrison’s and the Showmen’s Guild donated raffle prizes.
A team comprising the Mayors of March, St Ives and Godmanchester, calling themselves the Chain Gang, were the victors but graciously shared their prizes with a team led by Cllr Stephen Brunton who had tied after the main rounds.
The Sunday ‘bag pack’ was attended by the Wisbech Units of the Sea Cadets (TS Falcon) and the Girls Venture Corps Air Cadets, whose cadets, officers and parents gave time and effort to assist.

“They promote the town and give such a good example,” said Cllr Farmer. “Two sea cadets had only joined the unit the night before and were already showing their commitment to community activities.”
Proceeds will go to youth and community organisations in Wisbech.
