A MUSIC quiz has raised £400 for the Harwich Mayoress’ Appeal.

The Royal Oak was packed as music lovers turned out in force to enjoy a Harwich Society music quiz.

The pub donated the hall free of charge and a large number of raffle prizes were brought along by those taking part.

Garry Calver, from the Harwich Society quiz team, said:”The opening track was Big Spender and those taking part certainly lived up to that title.

“Everyone was very generous and it was a fantastic evening.

“By the time we reached the final track, which was Hey Jude, the singing was louder than we have ever heard and that is saying something.”

The quiz was won by Quietly Confident with 91 out of 100 and the mayoress’ team, Kate and Co, took away the wooden spoon with 26 out of 100.

Mr Calver added:”Kate has set out to make her year as mayoress a lot of fun and the Harwich Society quiz team did their best to support her aim.”
