We would like to thank everyone who braved the weather and attended our first ever quiz night on Saturday (27th July) at the Stewarts & Lloyds Football Club on Occupation Road in Corby.
Our very own Ryan McGuckin was quiz master for the evening, asking questions on a range of subjects including film and television, geography and places, literature, music, sport and general knowledge. There was a picture round where you had to identify winners from the ITV's I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here programme, plus a Beat the Intro round which featured music from the 1970s through to today.
Cash prizes were available of £50 for the team finishing in first place (The Famous Five) and £25 for the team finishing in second place (Embrace the Future).
A raffle was held where you could win a bottles of cider, gin and white wine, Savoy Cinema tickets, JD Wetherspoon meal vouchers, Cadbury's chocolates, and Embrace Radio goodies including a baseball cap, mug and t-shirt. Plus Dave O'Neill invited players to take part in the football based scratch card games during the interval. To round the evening off, everyone was invited to play 'Closest to...' where players would try to roll a pound coin towards a bottle of alcohol, with the person closest winning the bottle.
We raised a total of £220 from the quiz, raffle, football cards and Closest to games. After deducting the prize money for the winning teams of the quiz, we then donated half of all profits made to the Stewarts & Lloyds Football Club.
Nick Galway (Events Manager for Embrace Radio) said "A massive thanks to all that came and supported our event. It was a great sucess and we look forward to holding our next quiz night in the not too distant future. Also a huge thank you to John Davies of Stewarts & Lloyds Football Club, Andy Malcolmson at California Disco, Mike and Nikki Walker at The Corby Trader, Pam Bryan of Pams Florist, Corby, The Saxon Crown (JD Wetherspoon, Corby) and Savoy Cinema (Corby) for their continued help and support".
