An EPIC Quiz

On Saturday 17th September This is EPIC hosted the first ever EPIC Quiz. It was held at the new Cobo Community Centre, which is such a great facility (despite a crackly microphone – hence the standing on a chair). The event was sold out, 22 teams taking on the EPIC Quiz.

The teams competed over 7 rounds, covering topics such as Guernsey History, Sport,  Literature, Geography and a very popular Music round, which was snippets of Kids TV Theme songs.

Teams were treated to a “posh ploughman’s” which went down a treat, especially the lovely fresh bread rolls from Senners. A HUGE selection of cakes was the desert, and there wasn’t much left at the need of the night!

As for the result, it was a close one in the end, the winners, “Two Tims and No Jim” won with 70 points, two teams came joint second on 66.5 points and number of other teams had over 60 points.

The main purpose of the quiz was to raise money for our projects in Uganda and the DRC.

We raised an amazing £1,850.00  

The money raised will go a huge way to help us create more savings and loans groups in both countries. It costs just under £400.00 to set-up and run a new savings group for the one year cycle.

Below are a few pictures from the quiz.
