Fitch Brains Get AAA+

April 23, 2016

On April 19th, our highly trained team of professionals decamped to sunny Docklands to run a quiz night for our good friends at Fitch Ratings.  And good friends they are too - we have been providing quiz nights for them since 2002, would you believe?

 

Before the start of proceedings, Silvia Fernandes presented Pete Parkin & Pete Inwood with a wonderful & generous donation of £2,000.  There now follows a picture containing a couple of old guys, so those of a nervous disposition might want to look away for a second...

... You can look again now.  Wisely, our other volunteer, Jacqueline Yeo, declined to be caught on camera with the 2 Petes.  Bravery awards to Silvia, & to Susan Meshkati for risking her phone's camera there.

 

With a team name like "To Be Second Is To Be Last", you need to back it up with some serious question answering, & they duly did just that, emerging as winners with an amazing 150 points out of a possible 162.  This left second placed "Comply & Prosper" plus 20 other teams trailing in their wake.

 

"The Second" weren't quite that high up the table, although they were awarded a prize for recovering from a truly awful start to almost finish in not last place.  Our choice for best team name?  "Quizzy McQuizface" won the day there.

 

Thanks once again to Susan, Silvia & everyone at Fitch Ratings for supporting our fundraising once again.
