Reigate Manor help raise over £1600 for Stripey Stork
Published: 19 Jul 2022
On Thursday 23rd June Reigate Manor played host to local charity, Stripey Stork’s, annual quiz night. Sadly, due to the pandemic, the charity have been unable to run the evening since 2019. Nevertheless, the 2 year hiatus only helped build the excitement for their inevitable return.
Exactly 100 guests took their seats for the quiz, dressed top to tail in stripes to support the charity’s annual campaign, Stripes 4 Stripey. Made up of supporters, volunteers and the team at Stripey Stork, the room was filled to the brim, creating a fantastic atmosphere. Questions on geography, British history, music, tv and more, challenged the teams through 8 separate rounds, ending with one team triumphant. The Belfry Brainiacs. Congratulations to them!
Quiz master, Chris Ells, showed his appreciation for such a great turn out. “It really was amazing to see everybody back together again. It’s always a pleasure working with the Stripey Stork team and their supporters. They should be very proud of themselves for raising so much money. Perhaps not for their quizzing ability”.
Regardless of who won, a huge thank you is needed not just to the winners but to everyone who went along, organised and helped raise an incredible £1600! Money that will be put to good use, supporting local families in Surrey. No doubt, the teams across Stripey Stork and Reigate Manor will be back again next year.
