With the halfway target almost within reach, we thought a quiz night would be the perfect opportunity to get us closer to that big target of £22,400. The weather was good on that Saturday evening which is always a good start and as we entered the venue it was clear that many people were enthusiastic in supporting the New Horizons team. With nearly 10 quiz teams overall, it was set to be a good evening.
Whilst the first 5 rounds were happening, we created a board with 200 numbers on and, during the break, people got to pick a number from the board for a chance to win a prize in the raffle. To our surprise, it was quite popular with many people purchasing numbers in their 5’s. Someone even picked 20 numbers! Another game was Head or Tails where participants paid 50p to take part and they had to decide whether the quiz master’s coin would land on Heads or Tails. After people were eliminated the winner would get….
Our job for the second half was to help collect answer sheets and add up the points after every round and the competition was fierce. By the end of the evening, 1 point was the difference between 1st and 2nd place! After 10 rounds of questions the score was revealed and the team with the most points were now the proud owners of a bottle of wine each.
The final amount we raised took us over the halfway mark and for the whole evening the generous people who attended the quiz night managed to raise over £500!
On behalf of the New Horizons team I would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came along, we hope you had a great time! And if anyone would like to get involved by helping us get to Colombia please feel free to visit our donations page at ….
