A great way to spend a winters evening
Posted on Nov 16, 2011
Our annual general knowledge quiz is the perfect way to spend a winters evening. Prepared by quizmaster Dave Watkins of Market Drayton it has got people across Shropshire, Telford and Mid Wales scratching their heads.
Featuring 200 questions across a broad range of subjects, Dave’s quizzes have developed a real following and we are delighted that he has once again set this challenge on behalf of Severn Hospice. Entry to the quiz costs just £2 and with the closing date not until 15 February 2012 there is plenty of time to research answers.
The quiz comes in the form of a question sheet and separate answer sheet which is detached and returned to Dave for marking. A fiendish tiebreaker question, which no amount of Googling can help with, is the final decider. The full answers will appear on this website shortly after the closing date and a list of answers will also be provided to anyone who sends a stamped addressed envelope with their entry. First prize is £25, second prize is £15 and third prize is £10.
Quizzes are available in the reception areas of all three Severn Hospice sites (shown here), and copies can be obtained by calling Dave direct on 01630 654 130.
Last year £1,400 was raised by the quiz and Dave hopes to beat that total this year. At just £2 per question sheet you could help him by giving the quiz as a stocking filler gift or simply buying extra copies for friends and families. Every penny will go to supporting the people cared for by Severn Hospice.
As always, our thanks go to Dave for his hard work in compiling the quiz.
