Quiz Night SuccessPosted on: April 6th 2022
On Friday 1st April, Friends of Amery Hill held their first fundraising event in a long time with a well supported Quiz Night raising funds for the school; it was a great success in so many ways. It was wonderful to see the hall so busy and everyone really enjoying themselves. We had over 100 attendees, comprising of 14 teams. The cash bar, offering a selection of Prosecco, red and white wine, ale, lager, water and soft drinks was well supported and the picnics brought by individuals looked delicious.
A very special thank you to our quiz master, Hannah Fry. Hannah was amazing and kept the noisy hall of people under control, whilst testing their knowledge with a great selection of questions, some of which had the teams stumped.
Many congratulations to the winners, ‘Where’s Graeme and Liz?’ who received a trophy and a small box of Easter Eggs! The losers, ‘Govs and the Old Govs’, were awarded a very appropriate wooden spoon, carved with an upside-down smile.
During the interval, the £1 coin roll brought out everyone’s competitive streak. After the throwing of many coins, the winner was Fiona Pearce who won a lovely bottle of champagne. Many congratulations Fiona!
A fabulous £1,106 was raised from ticket sales, proceeds from the bar and the coin roll, which will go a long way to buying additional equipment for the school. We have recently been able to purchase a new PA System for the hall, with remote microphone, sound system and speakers - it certainly proved its worth on Friday night. A big thank you to the parents and staff who helped at the event. We really do appreciate all of your support and this could not take place without you. We do have a few more events planned for the summer term. Do keep a look out in the weekly parental bulletin for updates.
