Big Diss quiz raises �1,000 for heart charity

Eleven teams helped raise more than �1,000 for the British Heart Foundation as part of the charity's Big Diss Quiz.

The winning team, from Steeles Law, received the BHF trophy and voucher for a half-page colour advert in the Mercury.

The event took place at the Greyhound pub, with �1,002 raised to invest in pioneering research, patient care and equipment.

Alex Mayer, BHF fundraising manager, said: 'Our heartfelt thanks to the teams for taking part, the companies who donated a fantastic 32 raffle prizes and quiz master Nick Woods for their support.

'One fundraising event can make such a difference: �5 will provide a free DVD to the parents of a baby born with a heart condition while the �1,000 raised at the quiz night is enough to fund a specialist heart failure nurse for a week.'
