Sussex Day celebrated with quiz in aid of county’s air ambulance

A LIFE-saving charity wants people to celebrate Sussex Day by taking part in a battle of wits.

Sussex Air Ambulance has organised a host of quiz nights for the county day on June 16 and wants local people to help out by holding their own competitions.

Sussex Day has become a popular way for residents to celebrate the county’s rich heritage and was launched in 2007, the same month the air ambulance helicopter first took flight.

And the hope is that enough events will be held to help the pilot, doctor and critical care paramedic continue to save lives in the county.

Quiz nights already organised include ones at The George Hotel in Hailsham and Chambers Bar in Eastbourne.
