More than £1,100 was raised for Prostate Cancer UK in a crazy night of quizzing at Grayshott’s Gurkha Durbar restaurant.

A grand total of 50 guests rose to the challenge run by Adam Forde and David Erswell, who are raising funds for the charity by riding the first stage of the Tour de France in June.

The duo led the fun quiz, which included a round where answers were decided by team captains – who had no questions – and a performance round to guess film titles.

Funds were swelled with an auction, which included tickets for Fontwell racing days, Sussex cricket matches, a signed book by Ian Rankin and a signed Tom Robinson album.

Generous raffle prizes donated by businesses were also a big draw.

Adam said: “It was a wonderful night and it was great to see so many people enjoying themselves, but also prepared to help us raise money for such a brilliant cause – not to mention a fantastic meal provided by Gurkha Durbar.

“We’d like to thank everyone who donated their time and prizes and a huge thank you to Sudha and Mani at Gurkha Durbar and all their staff. But the biggest thanks are to those who braved the coronavirus to come out and support us and donate so much money.”

Adam started raising money for Prostate Cancer UK after being diagnosed with and successfully treated for the disease in 2017. Last year he rode the first stage of the Tour de France, raising a total of £2,100.

This year he has been joined by David who has taken up cycling for the first time in decades.

The first stage of the race starts and ends in Nice in June and up to 250 Prostate Cancer UK riders, including Adam and David, will be taking up the challenge.
