Quiz heats up for fundraiser

RAISING funds for local emergency services was the goal of a quiz night in early October at the Nubeena Civic Centre.

The Rotary Club of the Tasman Peninsula, Tasman Peninsula Rural Youth and the Nubeena Community CWA combined with the Kooyna Fire Brigade to organise the night.

Labor Leader and local Lyons MP Rebecca White attended the quiz as part of a Sorell/Tasman Labor Party branch team and said the community did an incredible job.

“The Sorell/Tasman branch of Tasmanian Labor was proud to have a table at the quiz to support our emergency services,” Ms White said.
“All of the community groups involved did such a great job to put the night together and it was great to see so many people turn out for a good cause.”

Ms White thanked the local emergency services for their dedication to keep the community safe and for their efforts to improve awareness and understanding of how we can each be better prepared for the fire season.

“Right across Tasmania emergency services work incredibly hard to keep people safe.
“Nights like this quiz night not only help to raise funds but help raise awareness of what local emergency services do on a daily basis.
“Unfortunately, Labor’s team, including Federal Member for Lyons, Brian Mitchell MP, didn’t come out on top, although we finished a respectable middle of the pack.”
