Quiz Night at the Fox and Duck

Last weekend we had a quiz night at the Fox and Duck in my home town of Buntingford, with the aim of raising money for my channel swim charity, Great Ormond Street Hospital.

The quiz night raised over £1,000 on the night from entry and raffle ticket sales, and a further £250 from collection boxes on the bar of the Fox and Duck and other local pubs and businesses.

This, together with all the other wonderful donations people have been making, mean that I am now up £3,500 raised, of my total target of £10,000.

Many thanks to Susie for masterminding the event, and cooking Chilli for 70!  To Charlotte, Mandie, Beth, Julian & Lisa for cooking, hosting, and badgering local businesses for raffle prizes.  To Clare and Nigel for putting together and compering an enjoyable and competitive quiz!  Also to everyone for coming, and being so supportive!  Also a big ‘Thank You’ to the local businesses and individuals who donated raffle prizes!

It’s great to get so much support from the local community for the cause.  GOSH is a very well known and respected charity.  Everyone knows what amazing work it does, and in particular what amazing work it did, and continues to do for Tom 🙂
