A fund-raising Letham lady has answered the £735 question with a special charity quiz night in aid of Cancer Research.

Dawn Crighton hosted a quiz night in The Letham Hotel on August 16 and was delighted when nearly 70 villagers and visitors turned out to support the event.

She said: “Most people I know have been affected by cancer. I’ve got family who are dealing with it just now and I’ve lost family in the past.

“If we can make a difference then we should go out and do it.

“The whole Letham community supports this kind of thing. I’m going to do a similar thing every year because everybody I see says this was such a good night.”

Dawn wished to express her thanks to everyone who came along to make the night a success, who donated to the cause or provided prizes for the raffle, and a special thank you to Dave and Francis at The Letham Hotel who provided the venue and the buffet free of charge.

Sarah Johnston, local fund-raising manager for Cancer Research UK accepted the cheque on behalf of the charity. She said: “We’re really grateful to have supporters like Dawn.

“The fact she says she will do it every year is fantastic.”
