A trio of talking newspapers came together for an annual charity quiz night to raise vital funds to support visually impaired members of the community.

Sound East from Lowestoft, Grapevine from Great Yarmouth and Three Rivers, who serve Beccles, Bungay and Halesworth, all competed for the Talking Newspaper Trophy.

In total 50 people entered the quiz - creating 13 teams to battle it out for the top prize.

The trophy was ultimately won by ‘The K9 Crew’ from Three Rivers.

A spokesman for the event said: “It was a hard fought quiz with only three points between the eventual winner and the runners-up from Grapevine.

“Entrants were kept in order by fast-paced quiz master Simon Partridge assisted by his wife Jean.”

They added: “The raffle raised nearly £80 for the talking newspapers and everyone enjoyed a delicious buffet supper.

“Thanks go to the Grapevine who hosted the quiz this year.”
