There was a great turn out for the QRC Quiz night at The Travellers Rest, organised by the Social Committee and hosted by Quiz Master, James Atkinson.

The quiz was made up of four rounds of questions – general knowledge, sport, music round of spot the intro and then the final set, which was the picture round.

Between rounds, papers were exchanged between teams for marking and then passed to the Social Committee to record the results for each team.  At the end of Quiz there were two teams with the same score… Luckily James had prepared a couple of tie breaker questions.

Congratulations to ‘They thought it was a speed dating night’, who were overall winners.

Members donated a range of raffle prizes; The Travellers Rest kindly donated 3 bottles of wine and the Guess the Number of Flying Saucers was won by Juliette McLaren.

The fabulous amount of £283.51 was raised for this year’s adopted charity, 4Louis.

About 4Louis

4Louis are a charity that support families through miscarriage, stillbirth and child loss. The team at 4Louis understand how devastating and traumatic it is to lose a baby or child. When a baby dies, bereaved parents can feel very isolated. They may not know anyone else who has had a similar experience. Everyone grieves differently and there is no right or wrong way to grieve. Each person needs different types of support and this can change over time.

4Louis believe that parents suffering the loss of a baby or child need to be supported with compassion, empathy and care. Unfortunately, there is very little support within the NHS to help families dealing with child loss.

4Louis are a huge community of people that help other people. They fundraise to provide bereavement rooms and a growing range of memory boxes that provide a special way for bereaved families to store meaningful items and remember their baby. They also provide families and hospitals with essential equipment such as cuddle cots and cuddle blankets.
