To keep up our fundraising efforts for The Erskine we held a pub quiz at The West of Scotland Rugby Club on Wednesday 4th April. We had eleven teams in total, mostly made up of staff, friends and family and also teams from Clark Gillone IFAs and MacRoberts Law joined in the fun.
There were several rounds but the most interesting and amusing had to be the art round, where each team was given a selection of art materials and told to make a mascot to reflect the name of their team. Much hilarity ensued with the winner being 'Let's get quizical', complete with a parody of Olivia Newton John. Close behind were 'The Sticky Bandits' and 'The Guys at the Back'.
The overall winners of the quiz were The Easter Egg-heads', captained by our very own Paul Gay. Well done guys!
As well as the quiz we also ran a raffle, with some fantastic prizes being donated from various local businesses - Las Ramblas, Scotkart, Massimo's, Bedlam paintball, Tunnocks, Two Fat Ladies, Paul Smith and donations of two bottles of Whisky from Mackenzie Films HD and from MacRoberts.
Owing mainly to the fantastic raffle prizes on offer we raised the grand total of £351.26. We would like to thank everyone that came along to the quiz, everyone that donated prizes and to West of Scotland Rugby club for their hospitality.
