Each New Year, the HCR104fm ”Over to You” programme in conjunction with the Friends of HCR104fm, give a helping hand to local charities. The ‘Over to You Charity Challenge’ offers the winners of our quiz night £100 in cash plus a trophy to any local (or national) charity which would like to raise a team to take part. This is a great way to get any fundraising effort off to a good start. Each year the event has a terrific atmosphere and causes a great deal of fun. Ray Godby, HCR’s Operations Manager, masterminds all the questions and jokers can be played to boost points with a picture round and tie breaker if necessary. Our Quiz Master, this year, as in other years, is Steve Alton from Barclays Bank, which also sponsor this event.
Teams from all over the local area have taken part in our annual quiz night. Among the previous year’s winners have been CARESCO (Sawtry) the Cats Protection League, RSPB and last year the money was donated to the DreamDrops Children’s Charity.
2018’s Quiz Night will be held in The Comrades Club in 58 Cambridge St, Godmanchester on Saturday 20th January. Come along after 7pm for a prompt start at 7.30pm. If you are part of a local charity or support a charity, why not form a team and enter the competition? Teams of up to 6 people are just £10. In addition to the cash prize and the annually awarded trophy, the winning team receive a smaller replica to keep as a reminder of their victory. We also have a great raffle on the night too!
The Comrades Club is an excellent venue with a licensed bar charging slightly less than pub prices. If you think that your team will get peckish then do bring along some nibbles to keep the grey cells working. Entry to the car park is via The Causeway and St Anne’s Lane. Let us know if you are thinking of coming along as space is limited – so first come……………..!
