The Screamers felt that it would be a good idea to organise a pub quiz as a way to raise ourselves a bit of money and our partner charity -NDADA. The date was set and the team set about getting some pretty amazing prizes from local business and shops.
The event was advertised through Facebook and via posters in various places and also by word of mouth through work and friends.
I must admit i was a bit worried that no-one would turn up and on the day the omens were not good - i attempted three lots of cakes, one lot burned, one cake set my hair alight and the other lot (a batch of refrigerator cakes) were the only ones that were half way decent. I must stress here that i have passed my food and hygiene certificate and the quiz was quite some time ago and i have not heard of anyone experiencing any trips to A and E following eating any of them!
We duly turned up at the venue - initially there were only 4 people there and Tony was giving me the disappointed "tut" that i am sooo used to now, questioning my organisational skills and ability to advertise properly.
However it did start to fill up and soon the place was packed. There was a really good turnout and it turned out to be a really enjoyable event - the feedback we got was that we should do another one (maybe next year). The Screamers turned out and everyone did their bit, we ran out of raffle tickets but that did not matter and the cakes went (even mine).
|Jerry's mum and dad really kindly offered to do the pub quiz - as they are pretty professional in this department and the Agricultural Inn let us have their skittle Alley free of charge.|
|No Screamers event would be the same without cake - so we decided to have a bit of a cake sale alongside the quiz and the raffle.|
