AN ANNUAL spring quiz at the Rotary Club of Mold raised more than £400 for the water charity, Water Survival Box.

Eighteen teams took part in the latest edition of the yearly quiz - which took place at Beaufort Park Hotel on Tuesday, March 12 – with the winning team also generously donating their £100 prize money to the charity.

For their achievement in correctly answering more topical questions than anyone else, David and Lynn Pearse, and Mike and Leslie Barbet will now hold the rose bowl trophy for the coming year, until the next spring quiz in 2020.

The Water Survival Box project was established by the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge following the devastating 2004 Boxing Day tsunami in the Indian Ocean, which killed at least 225,000 people across a dozen countries.

With water being essential to sustaining human life, the primary purpose of Water Survival Box is to provide a means of purifying water for families that survive natural or man made disasters.

Clean water is essential to survive and to protect against water borne diseases. And with homes quite often being destroyed in these cases, the Water Survival Box contains a range of essential survival items including cooking pots, utensils, health and hygiene items, as well as basic shelter and simple tools.
