Tearfund Big Quiz

Sunnyside is excited to be joining churches across the country again in hosting the Tearfund Big Quiz Night. It will be held in Church on Saturday 13th November, 7.30pm for 7.45pm start, and Katie Randall-Stratton will be Quizmaster again. In 2019 we raised an incredible £637 including gift aid, last year we smashed that raising a whopping £683.75 including gift aid, so this year I definitely have high hopes!

See this short Big Quiz Night promo: https://vimeo.com/585835694/cc01acd62b Note they changed the official date to the following Saturday 20th but I’m away then so we’re keeping it on the 13th!

It has been so lovely seeing familiar faces again in Church and what better reason to come together socially and also to raise money for charity. Will the FluFighters (Hannah and Kate Smith, Su W, Holly and Jeremy) retain their lead and who will take home the wooden spoon?

There will be eight rounds – history, geography, entertainment, sport, good news, arts and culture, food and drink, and science and nature. They’ve reduced each round to six questions so should be quicker! Please bring your own drinks and nibbles (including vessels/bowls to put them in) and take any recycling home.

Teams of up to eight people (sorry no more as it becomes unfair). Great if you can organise a team yourself – participants don’t all have to be Sunnysiders so rope in family, friends, neighbours, colleagues etc. The bigger attendance the more we raise for Tearfund. Please do still sign up if coming solo or in a smaller numbers as everyone is welcome – we’ll make up teams as required, and it could be a chance to get to know different folks. There will be sign-up sheets in Church but ideally if you are thinking of coming please use this online form: https://forms.gle/2svoPGPnxDQd4UjM8

Tearfund suggest a donation of £5 per person. Donating directly to Tearfund worked well last year, here’s this year’s link: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/katie-randall-stratton2 But please bring cash too as we will do another game of heads or tails. Sunnysiders and friends who aren’t able to join the quiz please do feel free to donate as well!

We do obviously need to be mindful of Covid safety measures. In keeping with current Church procedures, please enter through Lobby and exit through the porch door and wear masks until seated. We will cluster chairs around tables for teams so that will naturally provide social distancing between tables. Lateral flow tests before you come encouraged. If you would like to come but wish to wear a mask whilst seated please indicate that on the sign up form and we will team masked attendees up on a table.

And finally I will need a few helpers please to come and set the church up ready (hopefully many hands light work at the end) so please let me know if could be available to come at 7.10pm to assist. I am also on the look out for an assistant to sit next to me and help with the team scores please!

If you have any questions please feel free to get in touch with me at [email protected] (or contact the office for my mobile number). Look forward to quizzing again with you all…Katie
