The Big Fat Quiz of the Decade

£10 per Team Member


All tickets must be paid for prior to the date of the quiz and due to the money being raised for charity, tickets are non-refundable.

Our chosen charity is the local branch of Childline. ALL money raised is entirely donated to support the valuable care they provide.

“The demand for their service is greater than it’s ever been. Childline provides a 24/7 listening and support service for young people up to their 19th birthday. Themes such as suicidal thoughts, self-harm, depression and anxiety, sexual and emotional abuse, bullying, family conflict, and many more, are sadly commonplace. Our volunteer counsellors undergo a 12 week (36 hour) training programme before taking up their role dealing with online chats and voice calls in the counselling room. Each contact costs an average of £4, and the cost of training a counsellor is around £1400.”
