The fourth annual Bangers & Fizz Charity Quiz, organised by The Lincolnite, Ringrose Law, Visual Print & Design and Epix Media, took place on Friday, March 17, raising over £2,000.
Almost 150 people attended the speed quiz at The Drill in Lincoln on March 17, complete with a fizz reception and a two course meal of sausages and mash with veg, plus dessert.
The event was in aid of United Lincolnshire Hospitals Charity, who provide support for NHS staff.
Over £2,000 was raised on the night, meaning vital funds could be donated to the charity which has supported projects including:
- Funding a Sensory Room at Pilgrim Hospital Boston.
- Purchasing a new MRI Scanner for the people of Louth
- Wedding boxes for end of life patients.
- Teddy bears for babies on the neonatal unit.
Some great prizes were raffled including hampers, experience days and a Lincoln City Football Club shirt, signed by the first team players.
Gary Burr, Community & Corporate Relationship Manager said: “It was a great fun-filled evening on Friday and thank you so much for supporting United Lincolnshire Hospitals Charity. Every £ will make a difference to our staff and patients at our local hospitals.
“A special mention to The Lincolnite for choosing to support us as their charity partner for the evening.”

The night didn’t stop there, with live music rounding of the evening.
