Report by Deborah Davies, FOSEC Committee Member
A ‘Quiztastic’ evening was had by all at our very first ‘Fizz, Quiz & Chips’ night on Friday 22 September.
The evening started with a welcome glass of fizz and yummy nibbles and our Acting Chair provided a wonderful quiz with a picture round, blockbuster, current events and entertainment rounds and ended with a nail-biting elimination round! The winning team on the night were ‘Universally Challenged’ so congratulations to them on a very impressive score.
We were treated to a Fish n Chip Supper at halftime but these were no ordinary Fish & Chips! Oh no, not with our fabulous catering team! Handmade batter, sumptuous gravy, curry sauce, tartare sauce, lemon wedges and of course lashings of salt and vinegar and all wrapped up in ‘newspaper’. This was next level Friday night chippy tea! Thank you so much to the catering team for all their help on the evening. It was appreciated by all.
The surprise of the night was a rousing game (or rather about 20 games!) of ‘Play Your Cards Right’. A total hit with our guests (and the FOSEC team!). Eventually we had a lucky winner who scooped one of the cash prizes but we unfortunately ran out of time so the second cash prize will be up for grabs at our Winter Ball (25 November). Believe us, you do not want to miss it!
All in all an amazing evening with friends, family and colleagues and a wonderful total of £810 was raised on the night so a huge thank you to all who attended and contributed.
We will publish a running total of monies raised to date and the plan of how we will use this for the benefit of our pupils and students in the New Year after the Winter Ball. See you then.
