Axminster’s Flamingo Pool receives £250 after supporters don their thinking caps at Hunters Lodge pub

The Hunters Lodge Inn, at Axminster, generously hosted a quiz night for the Flamingo Pool, raising £250.

Pub locals, pool supporters and volunteers put their thinking caps on in an effort to become the winning team.

With a voucher to spend at the Hunters Lodge Inn and free swims at Flamingo Pool up for grabs, competition was fierce but friendly.

Neville Causley, from Hunters Lodge Inn, said: “We like to be able to help local groups and charities like the

Flamingo Pool as they are at the heart of the community.

“We were really pleased with the amount that was raised.”

Flamingo Pool manager Steve Buxton said: “We would like to thank Neville and his team at the Hunters Lodge

for hosting the evening, providing nibbles, preparing the quiz and helping us to raise funds.”

The winner of the raffle generously donated the prize - half of the raffle proceeds - back to the Flamingo Pool.

* Anyone can come to the Flamingo Pool for swimming, aquafit, swimming lessons, lifesaving, swimming clubs,

family fun, inflatable sessions and training courses.
