Quiz Night

13 February 2016
Supporters Tabitha Nicholls and Lara Wheeldon joined forces with quizmaster Lee Ellaway once again for the annual quiz night at St Michael’s Mead Community Centre, in Bishop’s Stortford. More than 100 people battled it out to get the top prize raising £2004 for our appeal in the process. Well done.
