The Card School hit the Jackpot!
The Tuesday night draw witnessed a big turnout to see if the Jackpot might be won.
Mr Gary Reay and his 'regular band of men' had the winning ticket and decided to "Open the Box".
With only 6 keys left - Mrs Del Lakin-Hall was asked to choose one and she duly obliged with the winning key to the box and the syndicate won nearly £3400!!
They generously 'looked after the staff' and made a donation to the Captains Charity.
Liam Phipps Wins & OGC finish 3rd!
