The much anticipated Life Education Wessex Tenth annual Big Quiz event took place on Thursday 9th March at AFC Bournemouth, to raise funds to help nearly 50,000 children safe, healthy and happy across our region. A grand total of £8,172.97 was raised.
With teams battling for the coveted Big Quiz trophy, it was a real ‘nail biter’ of a finish with just one mark separating the top two teams. Congratulations to the Winning Team “South Deep”, from Deep South Media (pictured left), who were crowned as the 2017 Big Quiz Champions, followed by “The Bournemouth Rotary” with “HK High” from Humphries Kirk coming in third place.
Lorraine Hewitt, Fundraising Manager, “Thanks to everyone who contributed to the success of the Big Quiz, to our sponsors, Dutton Gregory, LV and Mazars LLP, to Nigel Hedges, our fantastic Quiz master and to our fantastic teams, for their enthusiasm and generous support. We really couldn’t have managed without our Barclays volunteers, for their match funding of money raised on the night and for their hard work and contribution by totting up the scores, collecting quiz papers, selling raffle tickets and the delicious biscuits (kindly donated by Rich’s). We are delighted with the amount raised on the night and most grateful to the local community who have helped to ensure that the children in local schools who receive Life Education are given the knowledge, skills and self-confidence to form positive attitudes that will enable them to lead safe, happy and healthy lives”.
