On Thursday 23rd June we were fortunate enough to play host to local charity, Stripey Stork’s, annual quiz night. We say annual, of course, but the past 2 years have seen the evening cancelled due to the emergence of Covid-19 and the rather large matter of an international pandemic. Nevertheless, the 2 year hiatus only helped build the excitement as we welcomed the team back again.
Exactly 100 guests took their seats for the quiz, dressed top to tail in stripes to support the charity’s annual campaign, Stripes 4 Stripey. Made up of supporters, volunteers and the team at Stripey Stork, the room was filled to the brim, creating a fantastic atmosphere. Questions on geography, British history, music, tv and more, challenged the teams through 8 separate rounds, ending with one team triumphant. The Belfry Brainiacs. Congratulations to them!
Regardless of who won, a huge thank you is needed not just to the winners but to everyone who came along, organised and helped raise an incredible £1600! Money that will be put to good use, supporting local families in Surrey. No doubt, the team at Stripey Stork will be back again next year.
