Another year, another successful quiz night where we’ve managed to raise hundreds of pounds for an incredible charity!
You may remember that last year we hosted our first ever quiz night in aid of one of the local charities that we support, Hospice in the Weald. It was a resounding success which has resulted in the quiz and raffle night becoming a yearly tradition.
On Friday, weeks of preparation and last-minute trivia revision (for some teams) all came together for a night of ridiculously difficult questions thanks to our quizmaster, Andy Dobson, and equally stupid answers. Hands up if you think Tenerife is in Africa…
Can you answer any of these tricky questions we struggled with this year?
- What type of food is a Bedfordshire clanger?
- In which race does the slowest man of the day get given a red lantern?
- Can you name all seven countries beginning with the letter E?
- ‘Shoe Inspector’ is an anagram of which famous 90s band?
- Which beer label has a five-pointed star on it?
Thanks to everyone’s generous donations through raffle tickets and entry, we have been able to raise £625 for Hospice in the Weald. We know the money will go to an amazing cause and help them provide support and care for their patients with terminal illnesses as well as their families.

Hospice in the Weald is a hospice that provides compassionate, individualised palliative care to people with a terminal illness, their families and carers in West Kent and Northern East Sussex, in the UK. The hospice was established in 1980 and has been providing high-quality, specialist palliative care to patients and their families ever since.
The hospice aims to help people to live with dignity, respect and compassion, and to support them in managing their symptoms, whether they are physical, emotional or spiritual. They also offer a range of services, including inpatient care, day services, Hospice at Home, and bereavement support.
The inpatient unit provides specialist palliative care to patients who require more complex care and symptom management. The day service provides an opportunity for patients to socialise and take part in activities, and also offers support and advice to patients and their families. Hospice at Home provides care and support in the patient’s own home, enabling them to stay in a familiar environment. The hospice also provides bereavement support to families and carers following the loss of a loved one.
Hospice in the Weald is a registered charity and relies on the support of the local community to fund their services. They receive limited funding from the government, and so they rely on donations and fundraising events to continue providing care to those who need it. The hospice also works in partnership with other healthcare providers, such as hospitals and GPs, to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.
