Team Spirit

Some of my favourite pics of my adventure with Team Spirit (remember I was just a companion) – the big bears (Richard Weals, Dave Weals & Pete Corbett – with Jason Petillo & Tony Jacques) did all the really hard work.

PubAid:World’s Biggest Quiz

The PubAid quiz was tough but everyone survived …. even our long-suffering Quizmaster!


A great turn out of nine teams: Standing Orders, Boff’s Boffins, Brain Drain, Freddie’s F***wits, Room For Improvement, Clifford Clangers, Chase Young Farmers, The No Hopers, and The Titanics.

With half the entry fee designated as prize money and half going to charity we expected to raise £45, but our winners, The Titanics also kindly donated their winnings – so that’s £90 raised for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.

The initiative as a whole involved over 1400 pubs of which over 1000 have yet to declare their results, but more than £48,000 has been declared as raised already.  The total is updating by the minute and can be found on the PubAid’s World’s Biggest Quiz webpage.

A big thank you to all of you for turning out despite the arrival of Storm Imogen..

Team Spirit Challenge 2015

Team Spirit completed their latest challenge late last night – well done guys. They think they should be due back in the village at about 8:30pm tonight and I’m sure they would appreciate the support of anyone who would like to turn out and welcome them home.

If you can’t make it – please feel free to donate to Birmingham Children’s Hospital via their Just Giving page.
