Our quarterly quiz nights in Aberdeen are a chance to get your friends together for a bite to eat and a bit of fun while raising money for kids in Kenya and Aberdeenshire.
The first in our series of four GEF quizzes, sponsored by Ledingham Chalmers Solicitors, took place at the Ashvale Restaurant in Feb 2019 just before the pandemic hit. It saw us raise an incredible £1,244! A whopping 104 people turned up to take part and support the event with Callum Sinclair and friends emerging victorious with an impressive score of 63/70.
The second quiz of the series was held at Brewdog in February 2022 after a long wait while the country and world got through the pandemic. It was a great turnout with 20 teams taking part. Mark McDonald and his team won our 1st prize of £100 voucher for Aberdeen restaurant 8848, kindly donated by the owner Krish. Second prize of £50 Brewdog vouchers went to Neil Patience and his team. The event raised a fantastic £804 in total! Huge thanks must go to our sponsor Ledingham Chalmers, David Scott, Skylar and the team at Brewdog Castlegate and all who came along for their sponsorship and rallying of team mates.
The third quiz of the series was held at The Ashvale was a great success. 75 guests across 14 teams took part and the evening was full of fun. Neil Patience and his team came out on top, with each team member winning a meal for 2 at The Ashvale donated by Stuart and his team. Former GEF Quiz Champ Callum Sinclair and his team were runners up; each taking home either a GEF bracelet or tartan snood for their efforts.
Thanks to event sponsorship from Ledingham Chalmers Solicitors and the £50 Heads & Tails prize donated by Fit Like Joggers / The Brewdog Run, we raised an impressive £735 which went towards funding our psychosocial support programme for children and families in Kenya.
