Teams mas­ter­mind £1,800 hos­pice to­tal

Macclesfield Express - - EAST CHESHIRE HOSPICE -

A ROOM full of mas­ter­minds with ex­ten­sive knowl­edge of fa­mous bridges, Wim­ble­don cham­pi­ons, literature and mu­sic has raised £1,800 for East Cheshire Hos­pice.

Drop­ping just two points out of a pos­si­ble 200, the win­ning team – The Ox-Dol-Church Coali­tion – beat 17 other teams in the quiz event at Tyther­ing­ton High School.

Quiz master and ques­tion set­ter was Mark Wat­son, a lead­ing light of the pub quiz scene in Mac­cles­field and dis­trict. Raf­fle prizes came from Gawsworth Theatre, So­phie Lou Beauty, Water­stones and the Bridge Ho­tel. Quiz-sters also en­joyed food supplied by the hos­pice bak­ers and a pop-up bar run by Nik Kalka and friends with beer do­nated from Mac­cles­field brew­ery Storm Brew­ing.

The quiz, or­gan­ised by hos­pice vol­un­teer Ali­son Bram­mer, is a quar­terly event. “We made ev­ery ques­tion count so that the hos­pice can make ev­ery day count,” she said.

“Be­ing able to raise al­most £2,000 for the hos­pice this time adds to what we have raised in Fe­bru­ary and means the quiz fans of Mac­cles­field and dis­trict have paid for a full 24 hours of care in the hos­pice – we can all be proud of that achieve­ment.”
