The Democracy team put on our first ever charity quiz night – and raised an amazing £2,050 for the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Comedian Justin Moorhouse was the host for a packed audience of 150 quizzers in Manchester’s Chorlton Irish Club.
Working on the belief that everyone’s favourite pub quiz round is the music round, we devised an evening where EVERY round was the music round.
The teams got stuck into TV and movie themes, missing words, one hit wonders, guess the sample and Manchester music rounds before Justin crowned a winner.
Everyone also dug deep to win some superb raffle prizes, including a night’s stay at The Mere hotel, passes to Zip World and Knowsley Safari, tickets to a recording of Loose Women, spa treatments, foodie hampers, toys and more.
We’d like to say a massive thank you to everyone who came along, to all those who donated raffle prizes and to Justin for giving up his time to be our star quizmaster.
Democracy is supporting Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital this year and aiming to raise £5,000 across the year. Already the team has competed in dragon boat racing at Salford Quays, completed the Three Peaks challenge, taken part in extreme racing challenges, volunteered for babysitting and even a spot of baking to raise the money.
Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital was chosen to support our friends Jonny and Katie Kidd, whose son Dexter is benefiting from the specialist care that the hospital provides.
