Burnley FC in the Community held their first ever Quiz Night at Turf Moor on the 16th November and +24 Marketing, as Silver Patriots to the charity, had to be part of it!
More than 30 teams took on the challenge to become Burnley’s Quiz Champions. The night was hosted by Darren Bentley, Burnley FC’s Media Manager, who did point out our quiz name was the best – The Good, The Bad and We Left Dave at Home.
With some of the +24 team stepping up to the plate, we also recruited a few other team members for support. Neil Welsh from PM&M Accountants, the only team member actually from Burnley, joined us. His knowledge of the town and club meant he was able to carry the entire team through the Burnley FC round, which was incredibly difficult.
We were also joined by two members of the acclaimed WHN Solicitors quiz team, Oliver Bagnall and Jake Neary. They have won PM&M Accountants’ annual quiz for the past three years, as well as winning Cummins Mellor’s recent quiz night! Needless to say, we could only have dreamed about second place without these guys on our team.
As well as being great fun, the night was a huge success, raising an amazing £2,000 for Burnley FC in the Community.
Our Social Sam spoke about the Quiz Night on Episode 80 of The Friday Fizz! See what he had to say.
