Quiz Night update

What a blast we had last Friday! Congratulations to team Scarborough ‘not so’ Fair who lifted the trophy as quiz champions of 2018.
The quiz night certainly proved to be a great success, but did we actually raise enough money for the school to invest in some new musical instruments……..?
We are delighted to announce that our profit for the night was £701.01!
Although this sounds like a handsome sum of money, it actually doesn’t go far where musical instruments are concerned. So for those who weren’t able to join us, but still want to contribute, or if you just wanted to put a little more in the pot – the BTMyDonate website will remain open until April 16th
Thank you to all who came and quizzed – watch this space for details of our next event…..scroll down to see some photos of the event.
