Champions Charity Quiz Night 2018
The Lloyd Barnes annual Champions Charity Quiz Night took place on Thursday 11th October to raise money for the Exeter Chiefs charity The Exeter Foundation.
The evening kicked off with 26 teams, made up of local businesses, all vying to take home 6 bottles of Veuve Clicquot Champagne and be crowned The Champions on the night.
The businesses represented included;
Exeter Rugby Club, Flybe, e2e Payroll Services, Kitsons, Ashfords, Denbow International, Global Services, Barratt Homes, Sparex, Luscombe Drinks, IJ Cannings & Son, Matford JLR, Foot Anstey, The Exeter, British Ceramic Tiles, Symise/Cobell, Patterson Law, Thompson Jenner LLP, Gregory Distribution, Linden Homes, Sparx, Northcott Beaton, Thrifty, Frobishers & Schneider Electric.
With over 8 rounds of quiz questions on everything from general knowledge to music, films and TV – the competition was tight with Patterson Law taking the honours on the night. Through generous donations and support, we raised an amazing grand total of £1900.00 !
All monies raised were through generous monetary donations and the sale of raffle tickets for prizes, which were also donated by local businesses for the event. The companies which donated the amazing raffle prizes included:
Barratt Homes, Luscombe Drinks, Exeter Chiefs, The Gro Company, Denbow International, Gregory Distribution, Haines Watts Chartered Accountants, Burts Potato Chips, LED Leisure, Nkuku Home & Lifestyle, Dart Marina, Exeter Chiefs, Thompson Jenner LLP, Northcott Beaton, e2e Payroll Services.
This is the 5th year we have held the Quiz night to raise funds for the Exeter Foundation, with each year exceeding the next, by way of monies raised, and interest generated from the local business community. Lloyd Barnes is a locally owned business and The Exeter Foundation is a charity very close to our hearts with the Foundations commitment to the future prosperity of Greater Exeter.
We look forward to seeing everyone again at next year’s quiz but we are already having to consider a larger venue as its popularity continues to grow. We continue to be blown away by the support and generosity of local businesses, which typifies the spirit of the South West and The Exeter Foundation.
