Tearfund Big Quiz Night fun

Saturday 14th November 2020 saw Sunnysiders and friends coming together on Zoom to join in Tearfund’s Big Quiz Night 2020. Last year 6,384 people at 560+ quiz nights raised £188,400. At Sunnyside 54 of us in eight teams raised £637 including gift aid, so there were high hopes for this year.

This year Katie Randall-Stratton was quizmaster to 14 teams with 48 of us coming together. First place to FluFighters (Hannah and Kate Smith, Su W, Holly and Jeremy) with 53 points winning a household box each of Toffifees, second place to Penguins and Bears (Katie’s brother, sister-in-law and family) with 52 points, and third place Tescos carpark (Markby family) with 49 points. Just me – Pam Dee (Pam Davis) was awarded the wooden spoon and a bag of Munchies although she was competing on her own so great effort. And special solo bag of Munchies for Phone a Friend! (Rachel Williams) as she got the highest solo score with 47 points, beating other teams, and especially as she didn’t end up phoning a friend once! 

The evening was full of laughs and feedback from it included “The quiz was the best night in we have had in a long long time” and “It was great Katie thank you! I learnt lots and laughed lots, all in a super cause”. Folks were incredibly generous, particularly after an epic annual gift day, and we smashed last year’s total with a whopping £683.75 raised including gift aid. Tearfund Big Quiz 2020 was attended by 486 churches, totalling 17,639 quizzers and the current total stands at an amazing £205,664!

We’ll keep you posted when they announce the date for November 2021!
