The Captain David Seath Memorial Fund has now raised over £270,000 and supported over two-hundred and twenty beneficiaries who have used the financial support to purchase specialist rehabilitation and sports therapy equipment, enable PTSD therapies and respite breaks as well as facilitate supported employment placements, training courses and the setting up of businesses.

Gary Seath said:

“I was delighted to welcome over one-hundred and twenty guests to the Garvock House Hotel which contributed to a wonderful atmosphere and sense of occasion. The quiz was keenly contested with plenty of friendly banter between the teams and there were many impressive performances on the evening.

“We are overwhelmed by the continued support from the local and wider community who so generously attend of our events and we can’t thank everyone enough for supporting David’s legacy rebuilding the lives of those who have experienced physical and psychological wounds as a result of service in the British Armed Forces.”

Following seven challenging question and picture rounds, which focused on topics including film, tv, sport, music and general knowledge, it was Les Quizerables who emerged victorious with a grand total of 52 points.
