York Quiz Night Success

A packed pub, lots of laughs and over £270 raised for Move the Masses

Thursday 27th April was our first Move the Masses Quiz night, volunteers, staff and trustees all spread the word and we had a great night, raising funds to help us get more people out moving.

The Knavesmire Pub hosted our first quiz night in April and it’s fair to say it was a great success. As more and more people arrived, volunteers had to find extra tables, stools and chairs to accommodate all the quiz teams! Hayden, our chair of trustees, did a great job asking the questions. These had been devised by our brilliant fundraising team, and included Dingbats, a picture round, sports round and Move the Masses themed round. The teams got stuck in and the results were so close there had to be a tie-breaker question to decide the ultimate winners.

Thank you to Vicki, Jenna and Ange for organising it all, to Hayden for stepping up to Quiz Master duties and to The Knavesmire for hosting. A huge thank you to everyone who came along, and brought colleagues, friends and family along too.

The funds raised will be used to help make movement a reality for more people, improving wellbeing through exercise. We’ve already had requests for another quiz so watch this space for the next one!
