Move over Mastermind, University Challenge and Eggheads as this week it was the local Penarth pub quiz and a chance to raise money for Challenge Wales.
Teams of regular quizzers as well as volunteers from Challenge Wales came together at the Windsor Pub, Penarth, to test their knowledge.
As the quizmaster read out the questions, it was heads down and pens to the ready. Faint whispers travelled around the bar & restaurant as we tried to recall our music knowledge from the 1970’s, 80’s and 90’s, guess the pictures round where we realised squinting at the pictures doesn’t really make any difference and put our general knowledge and geography to the test.
Many thanks to the companies and individuals who donated no fewer than 11 prizes for the fundraising raffle including:
- Rat Pack Dog Services (who provided a mantrailing voucher – perfect for those with four legged friends!)
- Escape Reality Cardiff (The number one escape room in Cardiff who provided a voucher)
- Charles Reardon Smith and Oxford Wine Company (for providing red and white wine)
- The Windsor Pub, Penarth (who provided a bottle of Prosecco)
The evening raised almost £200 for Challenge Wales and will contribute to the Challenge Wales bursary fund enabling young people to access our youth development opportunities. It’s a big thank you to everyone who took part!
In less than 10 months, the Windsor Pub has raised a whopping £4520 for local charities and whichever charity you are supporting it is certainly a really welcoming, social evening.
The Windsor Pub, Penarth hosts a community quiz the last Tuesday of the month raising funds for local charities. You can book directly with the pub or turn up on the evening.
