A Quiz and a Curry for charity

SI Winchester put forward a team of four members plus one ‘Soroptimister’ support for the Mayor’s charity quiz held at the Winchester Rugby Club recently. This formed the Winoptimists team.

As a club we support two of three charities, namely the Trinity Centre and Winchester Hospice. The third charity was the British Heart Foundation.

The evening was hosted by ‘Egghead’ Kevin Ashman and former Mayor Cllr Dominic Hiscock presented the evening. A delicious curry was served shortly after starting and the quiz consisted of 5 rounds. The final round being ‘challenge the Egghead’ who was asked questions by the top 5 quiz teams. He managed to answer four of the five questions put to him correctly.

It was an excellent turnout with 17 teams competing for the champagne prize. There was also a raffle which contributed £455 to the evening.

The Winoptimists came a credible 9th out of the 17 teams and spent a very enjoyable evening.
