At long last charities and other organisations that support them are holding fundraising quizzes. We are a bit out of practice but our brains have been expanded by reading and watching Only Connect, Mastermind, University Challenge, The Chase, Pointless whilst we’ve spent more time at home, not that we’d claim to be suitable candidates for some of these shows. The social element is important to us as much as testing ourselves in quizzes. We welcome new members.

Whilst we are mostly based in Saxmundham & Leiston and the surrounding area and many of the quizzes we participate in are held here, a number of us are not averse to travelling to Woodbridge, Ipswich and areas in between to enjoy a good quiz for a charity we would like to help, particularly if there is a meal involved!

Many of the quizzes we attend are in Community or Church Halls and typically they request participants to bring their own snacks and drinks. But we also like to go to quizzes in other venues where a meal is part of the evening, for example Seckford Hall, Trinity Park, or events that involve a ‘fish & chip’ supper.

Quizzes we aim to attend include those organised locally such as fundraising for Saxmundham Museum and The Long Shop, Leiston. Also those at Knodishall Village Hall who run regular quizzes for different charities. Further afield, we try to participate in the Inner Wheel, Woodbridge annual quiz at Woodbridge Community Centre and others at this location. Also Seckford Hall Golf Club do quizzes each month and we particularly support those for Lighthouse Women’s Aid and other good causes that use this facility

If this sounds like a group you want to belong to, please get in touch. We need a good sized pool of members so that for any one quiz we can field 4 to 6 in the team. So ideally 10+ members overall.
