Stour Chambers’ Charity Quiz Night 2019 report

11 Mar

The Quiz
With over 140 quizzers in attendance the night was set to be fun-filled. There were 6 rounds made up of 4 more traditional rounds (‘Beer!’, ‘2018’, ‘Bond’ and ‘The Letter K’), a Picture round (‘Guess the Toy’) and an ‘Activity Round’.
Inspired by the music video ‘Happiness’ by Ed Sheeran, the Activity Round required teams to make an ‘Ex Girlfriend or Ex Boyfriend’ with a bag of supplies which included balloons, tape, crepe paper and marker pens. Teams were given 10 minutes to build their creations and the results, well….they speak for themselves. The ‘Ex Girlfriends and Boyfriends’ were Judged by our esteemed panel (Marc and Charlie from Stour’s clerking team) and the winning entry was created by ‘The Rolling Stones’.

The overall quiz winners were Fairweathers Solicitors who consistently scored high on each of the rounds. CONGRATULATIONS!


The Raffle & Auction
We were extremely lucky to have been supported by a number of local businesses* who generously donated prizes to our Raffle and Auction. We auctioned a Mulberry Purse (Courtesy of Mulberry) which raised 2 impressive donations of £600 and £420 with both winners generously placing the purse back into the auction to raise more money. This luxury item will now be the subject of a further raffle, £10 per ticket – we will email with the details. Greta Boat Tours kindly donated a sailing trip for two people which raised an impressive £300 at auction; Red Key Concepts generously donated a 4 Ball at Littlestone Links Golf Course which raised £200 at auction; Fairweathers Solicitors kindly donated an Overnight Big Cat Safari Experience at the Big Cat Sanctuary which raised an impressive £700.
