April 4th saw us combining with our friends at Fitch Ratings to raise funds for the 15th consecutive year - what a tremendous achievement! This particular quiz night raised another £2,085, bringing the total raised to over £18,000 ... which is just magnificent.
It was a lively evening, with varying levels of quizzing on display. The lead changed hands between Topless Trumps and Love Actuary throughout the evening but in the end the latter's tenacity saw them creep ahead in the penultimate round and then hang on for victory. EU've Lost That Loving Feeling kept pace early on, but flattered to deceive and fell away. They did get some reward however, securing the best team name prize. Meanwhile, a close fight at the bottom saw just two points separate (We Have) Bigger Fitch To Fry, Emergency Brexit and Nothing Compares To EU, with the latter eventually (ahem) triumphing in the race for the wooden spoon.

Many thanks once again to the lovely people at Fitch for supporting us. We love doing the Fitch quiz and hope to see them again next year.
