Getting Quizzy with it!

Monday 18 April 2016

Last week the NLA galleries were transformed to host our inaugural charity quiz, thank you to everyone who took part - you all helped to make the evening a huge success!

We would also like to say a special thanks to everyone who generously donated prizes for the evening: Giffords Hall Vineyard - wine voucher, Graze - 30 box subscription, INSTRMNT- bespoke watch, Made - 2x tickets to the English National Opera,  Media Ten - 5x VIP Grand Designs tickets and Museum of London - 5x Fire! Fire! exhibition tickets. 

After five tricky rounds, a midway game of heads or tails, a quick pit stop to refuel with some chipshop chips, a raffle, lots of drinks and two tie breaks we finally crowned the winners:
 
1st - Quizzy McQuizFace - Atkins
2nd - Placemaking Pacemakers - Grosvenor
3rd  - “Let’s Get Quizzical” - Hoare Lea
 
Special prize for best team name went to HTA  for “Quiz De Burgh” and Daniel Bassett from Conisbee claimed the prize for ‘Heads or Tails’. 
 
A whopping £3,238 was raised on the night for Asthma UK, which we’re sure has helped provide some extra motivation to Sarah ahead of her daunting task of running the marathon this weekend! This brings Sarah’s total so far to a fantastic £5432.98 which will go towards funding world leading research and scientists who are working towards finding a cure for asthma, campaigning for change and supporting people with asthma to reduce their risk of a potentially life threatening asthma attack. If you missed the quiz but would still like to make a donation you can visit Sarah's Virgin Money Giving page here.
 
And finally if you are heading down to offer support for any/all the marathon runners this weekend, please watch out for Sarah and give her a big cheer as she whizzes past!
