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..
At 7.30pm on Sunday 7 February 2016, thousands of quizzers will simultaneously answer the first in a series of questions in the World’s Biggest Quiz.
Organised by Pubaid, supported by JustGiving, the aim of the evening is to raise money for local causes and charities.
Our entry fee is £10/Team of 4 – half going to prize money and half going to our nominated charity: Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
Be here and ready to answer the first question at 7:30pm!
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.
Just to let you all know that Team Spirit was in the top 3% of Just Giving Pages, making it one of the most successful of 2014. Well done on raising so much for Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
As many of you may know, over the last couple of years, The Clifford Arms has been doing what little we can to support Team Spirit. But we thought that perhaps it might be a good time of year to remind people why they put their time and considerable efforts into undertaking amazing cycling challenges.
In their own words, this is why …
“What happens when you’re a little girl, 9 years old, though … weighing only 2 ½ stone… something really isn’t medically right.
Well, our friend’s daughter Kayleigh, is that girl and the reason for her condition has to do with a rare kidney disorder. What is the disorder? Well, we are not really sure, but do know that its very rare.
What can be done to help make the condition better? Well, the doctors have said she needs a kidney transplant.
Now with the medication and treatment being so expensive, it costs hundreds of thousands every single month just to keep children like Kayleigh stable. Of course, we can all do something to help any charity we choose, a charity that has some kind of special meaning, some personal connection, so we have decided to do all we can to raise as much money as possible for little Kayleigh and Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
We have set some outrageous targets to raise one million for BCH, but this will be done over time. We are determined and are willing to take on gruelling challenges and with great support crew, we can turn this dream to reality.”
Having now done three incredible challenges: Lands End to John O’ Groats, Coast to Coast and Climb & Ride (including climbing the three peaks), they have raised over £15,000 so far and are currently making plans for next year’s fund raising efforts.
