This year, the funds from the President’s Project will provide Peterborough City Hospital with a quiet room and carer’s centre, where patients and family can spend time together.

The quiz was co-ordinated by Lions Club member Carol Rogers, who confirmed that they expected more money to be coming in over the next few weeks.

This was the 28th charity quiz that Peterborough Lions Club have organised and they will be promoting another quiz in September 2018.
