Another Great Quiz night success


October 4, 2017


The red carpet was in evidence as the crème de la crème of Kinross-shire’s high society dusted off their finest attire and congregated in The Windlestrae Hotel for the Andersons’ Annual Quiz night. Well maybe not, but almost 150 good folk turned out once again to support this great fun night and to raise a few pounds to boot. Hosted by the outstanding, and highly recommended, Quizzical ( Mike and Elaine Spain), the evening flew by with an excellent buffet from Windlestrae’s kitchen providing some much needed sustenance for those who were making the most of the bar service.

This year’s project was the Kinross High School Rock Challenge and an excellent presentation about this most worthwhile cause was given by Miss Stacy MacNab, Principal Teacher of Guidance at KHS and included a video of the group’s recent performance Happening Now, an 8 minute piece reflecting the struggle of innocent refugees from war torn Syria. A wonderful performance if you ever have the opportunity to see it.

On the night the Quiz winners with a near perfect 102 from a possible 110 points were the topically named ‘Can we play our joker yet?’ They certainly played their joker at the correct moment. An excellent team and very worthy winners setting a notable benchmark for future years.

Our proceeds from the night added to our own Rock Challenge (scaling Ben Nevis) gives us a running total of around £2500 which will help this outstanding local cause continue to put on high quality and polished performances.

Details of Global Rock Challenge and it’s ‘parent body’ the Be Your Best Foundation can be found here.

There are too many to thank for the organisation that goes into such a great night but we would like to note our thanks to all the firms (mostly local) which supported us with vouchers, other raffle prizes and of course special thanks to Quizzical. We have listed the firms below.

Thank You from all The Team at Andersons
