Good answer for charities

BIGGENDEN charities won big at an Apex trivia night last month.

Sixteen teams battled it out to get a slice of the $1000 prize pool for eligible non-profit organisations.

The Biggenden Hospital Auxiliary took out first place on the evening and Jenny Griffiths was thrilled to accept a cheque for $500 on behalf of the group.

She was presented with the cheque by Biggenden Apex Club president Peter Cooper at a meeting this week.

Other lucky winners were the Cancer Council Queensland Biggenden Branch winning $300, and the Coalstoun Lakes Hall Committee who won $200 for their third place prize.

Mr Cooper said the club was pleased to return all profits from the popular event to the community, as well as providing a night of family entertainment enjoyed by all who attended.
