To mark the end of the financial year and our time raising money for Hanne & Co’s charity of the year, Trinity Hospice, the charity committee organised an internal charity quiz night and bake sale on 13 March 2014.
The night was a joyous success, with a vast array of sweet and savoury baked goods having been made by the firm’s employees to sell on the night. With the boardroom full of food and drink, it’s fair to say that nobody went hungry … or thirsty! Edward Walton’s homemade cheese straws went down a treat, as did Isadora’s Mediterranean vegetable quiche and Wonu Sanda’s gingerbread aliens! Another notable culinary addition to the evening was Keely Harris’ sausage rolls which one employee, who wishes to remain anonymous, gave the plaudit of “one of the best savoury snacks I have ever eaten … south of Grimsby”.
Quiz master, Michael Brierley, kept everyone on their toes and led from the front with a wide variety of entertaining and sometimes perplexing questions, including:
1. If someone has committed avunculicide what have they done? (killed their own uncle) … and no “uncle killer” was not allowed!;
2. On what part of the body are deely boppers worn? (head); and
3. Which comic book star lived in Catcusville? (Desperate Dan)
At the end of the night, the points were added up and the employment department’s team, consisting of David Taylor, Harry Dronfield, Amy Walker and Alice Mathams, had triumphed their way to first place and declared the deserved winners. After a rigorous inquisition into Amy Walker’s use of a mobile phone during the proceedings, the victorious team walked away with a sumptuous array of Easter Eggs and Cava.
At the end of the night we totted up the monies raised and we are pleased to announce that we collected over £200 to add to the year’s fundraising total for Trinity Hospice.
Thank you to everyone for making this such a fun night!
