Tuesday 1st December marked the return of the Felicity J Lord Charity Quiz Night with the amazing Daniela Ellis doing a fantastic job as the quizmaster, the delightful Sian Slater making her mark as Head Executive Judge and the enchanting Maria Reynolds in assisting with the raffle.
The event took place at the stunning Coborn pub in Bow, East London. We enjoyed a fantastic turn out for the evening; 7 great teams with 8 people in each team, all with quirky and comical team names such as ShadTastic and the aptly named Misfits 2 from our Canary Wharf branch.
It was straight into action for our quizzers with a Picture Round and all teams were rearing to go with their heads down and concentration faces on from the off.
The first 3 Rounds of the evening were a mixture of songs and movies, and a section dedicated entirely to Christmas song classics! A quick break allowed the interim results to be announced which caused the competition to heat up for the final 3 Rounds. This half included the tensest Round ‘The 80’s’ which definitely increased the difficulty level and caused a stir among the teams.
The end of the quiz saw the raffle draw which had been taking place all evening, a beautiful Hamper full of treats went to the brilliant Boa Team.
It was an extremely close finish with only 2 points separating second place and the Overall Winners the Wolves of Surrey Quays who not only secured 1st place position but also received a Hamper full of CD’s, DVD’s and Christmas goodies! Quizzie Rascals from our Hackney branch finished 2nd and the Village People from our Hampstead branch finishing 3rd.
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who participated in this year's event - without your support we couldn't have raised such a phenomenal amount.
