STAFF at the Golden Lion branch of The Co-op in Arbroath held a quiz night to raise funds for their charity of the year.

The event took place in the Millgate Bar on Friday evening in aid of MenCap and sister charity ENABLE Scotland.

Nearly 70 people took part in the general knowledge quiz which was won by ‘The Boabies’, and team fees, donations and the raffle raised £300.

Co-operative employee Mark Cuthill who took part in the fund-raising effort said: “It was really good, the night was a big success and everyone had a great time.”

The Golden Lion store set a target of £550 for their part in the ‘Co-operative Charity of the Year’ and so far has managed to triple it, raising more than £1,500.
