Anne Hickling reports from the April social, a quiz fundraiser for WaterAid.

It was great to see a good turnout on April 25th; thank you all for coming. I suspect we’ve all done a lot of lockdown quizzes over the past year but they still seem to be popular. Putting a quiz together is great fun and can be very educational. I was a bit nervous about a round of Edinburgh questions as I’m still a newbie here and a lot of you have been here for ever... But hopefully there was enough variety in the rounds to ensure that everyone would know something....

Congratulations to Richard Oxlade and Anne Hoy on coming out on top, I hope you enjoy a virtual prize of your own choosing!

One of the themes of the quiz was ‘water’ and as a lot of you know, I’ve been fundraising for WaterAid over the last few years. So one of my reasons for running the quiz (apart from offering club members a hopefully entertaining evening) was to do a bit of fundraising. This year all money raised will go towards projects in Nepal, where 1 in 10 of the population still doesn’t have access to clean water close to their home. A fantastic £350 in donations has come in from the quizzers – thank you all very much!

If anyone else would like to make a donation, please visit my Justgiving page.
