The Stopfordian Parents’ Association (SPA) held a successful quiz night with 26 teams taking part and raising an amazing £1,600.
The Dining Hall was packed full of eager participants ready to test their general knowledge whilst tucking into succulent cheese platters and a well-stocked bar.
140 tickets were sold in advance and it was a tight competition with ‘The Lads’ closely outscoring ‘The Girls’ to win the quiz. A number of teams also won a ‘chocolate bonus’ which were awarded for clever answers to random questions.
Heather Cook, chair of the SPA, said: “Our takings have surpassed every quiz night so far – partly due to some canny cheese purchasing from Stockport Market and a special DHL delivery of wine straight from a Spanish Warehouse – and we are delighted with the amount raised. The £1,600 will go towards the purchase of musical instruments which will help pupils in all of the year groups.”
Many thanks to quizmaster Mr Tim Wheeler, ably assisted by Mr Tully. Special thanks also go to the SPA team: Heather Cook, Kars Duck, Vicki Ediker, Fea Ismail, Meg Mehra and Priti Patel for putting the successful event together.
