Lake District quizzers re-take top spot

Posted on March 26, 2018 | Charity, Events

This year’s quiz turned out to be a replay of 2016 when a team of former winners stepped up once again to reclaim the champion’s crown.

We had a great turn out for our 17th Annual Charity Quiz Night. A total of 23 teams convened at Kendal Golf Club on Thursday 8th March to pit their wits against fellow building professionals including suppliers, solicitors, estate agents, engineers, architects, planners and other local businesses.

After a closely fought contest, team members from the Lake District National Park Authority snatched the trophy for the second time, hot on the heels of their inaugural win two years ago. Gail Staton, Dave Robinson, Andrew Herbert and Eric Barker scored and impressive 51 out of 60 but faced stiff competition from second-placed Temple Heelis.

Russell Armer provided the pie and pea supper, while the raffle raised a tasty £360.00 – thanks to all who donated prizes. Total monies raised for the Great North Air Ambulance and MacMillan Cancer Support was £1,300 (650.00 per charity).

See you all next year!
