Another fantastic, sell-out Quiz Night was held at the Merlin Function suite on Friday the 11th May.  Thank to all parents and contributors that helped to raise over £1700 for School funds! 

The Merlin kindly gave us the venue for free, as did Murray ‘quizmaster’ Biggs, who not only gave his usual witty performance, but also saved the day by cycling home, IN-THE-RAIN, to collect a microphone cable when the Merlin’s failed under the pressure! 

Then, as if the quiz was not competitive enough, Ian Leach provided the half-time entertainment, who knew you could have so much fun with A4 paper and a bottle of Chivas Regal? A huge thank you to our kind donors including Mott MacDonald for printing and stationary and for the raffle prizes provided by Traverse and Royal Yacht (Yatch wasn’t available this year ;-) and local businesses such as, A-star sports, Corrine MacDonald photography and to Lorna Norton for securing excellent silent auction prizes (including two hours with handyman hubby Ross)! 

Lastly and by no means least, a massive thank you to the helpers on the night, raffle ticket sellers and parents in attendance, without whom it would not be such a success.  Just remember to get your ticket requests in early next year…or it’s a detention!
