BRAINY teams battled furiously at Hailsham Bonfire Society’s annual popular ‘Battle of the Brains’ quiz night.
Some nine teams competed to win the coveted shield at the event held in the Charles Junt Centre on Friday, June 8.
A team called ‘Left Wanting’ walked away with the trophy leaving last year’s victors ‘Sussex Search and Rescue’ in third place.
‘Moon Power’ from Newhaven came in a close second and also claimed the title of best named team.
The quiz night raised £240 towards the annual Guy Fawkes celebrations which will be held in Hailsham on October 20 this year, 2012.
The bonfire society will be raising funds every weekend between now and the day of the celebrations in order to raise the £7,000 needed to stage the torch lit procession and firework display.
Mike Farley, vice chairman of Hailsham Bonfire Society, said: “Our fundraising plan for this year is now well underway and we are confident of raising the funds needed to put on another spectacular display this October.”
