It was a challenge of wits and skills at the Rural Fire Service fundraiser trivia night at Narrabri Sporties on Saturday evening.

The fundraiser saw 64 attendees raise a staggering $2165 for the Narrabri RFS.

The team of Natalie Holland, Marty Linehan, Nick Sandlant, Jess Skewes and Peter Berney edged out the tough competition to claim first place.

It wasn’t just trivia questions that kept the attendees on their toes, organisers Kayla McCauley, Cheryl Hennessy, Jenny Wilson and Hannah McCauley hosted thrilling mini games.

A minties-wrapper ripping competition, in which the team with the longest piece picked up five bonus points, and a matchbox fire-truck hunt were some of the fun competitions.

Narrabri RFS brigade captain Greg Cassidy said it was a heartwarming gesture by all involved.

“It has actually all been a bit overwhelming,” said Mr Cassidy.

“It’s been a long season for everyone.

“Jenny and her team of organisers have done a magical job.

“And all off their own backs, it was extremely generous.”

Mr Cassidy said the donation will go towards new supplies.

“It gives us the opportunity to purchase non-standard equipment for the brigade that we wouldn’t normally be supplied with,” he said.

“We just had a one Cel-Fi system fitted to one of our trucks to improve mobile coverage.

“This donation will allow us to purchase additional systems for the other trucks.

“The other idea that has been around is a washing machine for the brigade.

“That’s just so members don’t have to wash their uniforms at home.”

Mr Cassidy thanked all of those who attended and said he was grateful to the SES which booked a table but could not attend due to the sudden flooding in the Narrabri region.
