The competitive spirit of 70 household teams from all over the UK, shone through our screens on Sunday night as their knowledge was put to the test at ‘Chai’s Big Quiz of EVERYTHING’.
The fun-filled virtual event, hosted by the fabulous Craig Squires of The Events Factory and organised by Chai volunteers, husband and wife, Andee and Barry Roback, raised a fantastic £4,000.
Judge Rinder kicked off the evening, welcoming contestants and thanking them for their support, he said: “On behalf of Chai, thank you for supporting such a wonderful charity.”
Throughout the evening, rounds such as ‘The noughties’ and ‘There was more to 2020 than Covid’, kept everyone thoroughly entertained. Players were also surprised and delighted to see celebrity guest appearances from Matt Lucas, Lesley Joseph, Don Black and Tom Chambers, who sent video messages of support.
Following the quiz, Andee and Barry said, “It was a real privilege to be part of the team that delivered such a fun and enjoyable quiz. It is never easy to write a quiz that can appeal to all ages and all levels of knowledge, but judging by the smiles on everyone’s face, I think we may have got it right. Zoom has allowed us to stay part of a community that cares for those in need and continue to support those who might otherwise become isolated. The Chai Quiz brought us all together, made us smile and helped raise much needed funds.”
Danni Blumenblatt, Chai’s Corporate and Challenges Fundraiser said: “It was wonderful to work with Andee and Barry. We are absolutely thrilled with the evening’s success – raising more than £4,000 for Chai! I’d like to say a special thank you to event sponsor Douglas Martin Estate Agents, we are so grateful for all their continued generosity.”
