A total of 160 generous – and in many cases knowledgeable – quizzers descended on Kinver on Friday to take part in Kinver Rotary Club’s annual Children in Need quiz hosted by Alan Dedicoat, the “Voice of the Balls”.

He left the event carrying £2,906 which comprised entrance fees paid by the teams, the proceeds of a bucket collection by Alan and cheque presentations.

These were made by Clive Corbett, the Kinver Rotarian, head teacher at Pershore High School, who handed over  £1,250 raised by the pupils and Julia Roseblade, wife of past president Clive Roseblade, who presented £400 collected at Goldthorne Park School in Wolverhampton where she is head teacher.

Commenting on this, the 15th successful event, club President Roy Sanders said: “Yet another full house at the KSCA Marsh Centre from teams across a wide area who support us each year resulted in the quiz itself again raising £1,256.

“The addition of the cheques from the two schools really made Alan’s journey worthwhile.”

Alan told the audience that the quiz he brought to Kinver in 2001 was the first in what has become a series of annual events at organisations across the country.  However Kinver remained the largest and most profitable he undertook.
