Fearless fundraising at our Halloween quiz

Charity supporters were in for a treat (with not a trick in sight!) at the recent Rockinghorse Halloween Quiz last week.

171 guests packed in to the newly refurbished Palm Court Restaurant on Brighton Palace Pier last Thursday (1 November) for the annual fundraising event, which raised a spook-tacular £6,071!

Kindly sponsored by MW Solicitors, guests enjoyed a fish and chip supper before the 24 participating teams went head-to-head at the Halloween-themed quiz night – in a bid to be crowned quiz champions.

Participants were tested on their knowledge of all things haunting and spooky, culminating in the much-loved karaoke round when teams can achieve bonus points with their fearsome musical performances.

After a tense final round, team ‘Hell-ton’ from the Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel were crowned the 2018 winners and were delighted to accept the trophy from Terrina Barnes, Corporate Fundraising Manager at Rockinghorse.

Speaking after the event, she thanked participants for their support, and said: “We very much enjoyed the Halloween quiz and are so grateful to everyone who joined us again this year. Over £6,000 was raised for our projects at the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton and we are so thankful for the generosity of our guests and sponsors.”

Special thanks to MW Solicitors, Neil, Remi and the team from Brighton Palace Pier, Gareth and Lynn from Quiz Host UK, face-painter Jo Foster and magician David Croucher.

We’ll be announcing details of our next charity quiz, very soon – watch this space!
