Christmassy Quiz and Comedy Evening!

On Thursday evening, The Charter Building hosted a fun evening of quizzing and comedy in aid of the Hillingdon Foodbank.

The night began with Vine from the Foodbank saying a few words about how important their work is at this time of year. In November, Hillingdon Foodbank sent out over 11,000 food parcels and they are set to exceed that by the end of December. They opened in 2009 and have been helping thousands of local individuals and familes with food parcels ever since.

Then WeeklyQuiz provided a fun Christmas picture round as well as a Catchphrase round and questions surrounding topics such as film, TV and sport. Comedian Tim Clark had the attendees laughing and grinning from ear to ear with his stand-up session whilst the quizes were being marked.

The winning team were J G Regan (pictured below).
