Quiz night at the Townhouse hotel on Monday night found some unsuspecting winners, in the team from the Fireworks For Arbroath group.
Round after round seemed to go in their favour, including a well-guessed 10 out of 10 on the true or false questions.
Although overjoyed to win the £250 cash prize, the group immediately invested the win into the firework fund. Team winner Mary Copeland said: “We couldn’t believe it, we went for a laugh and were so surprised to win. As soon as the committee bank account is open, the money will go straight into it.”
