The annual Friends of Birkdale School Quiz took place on Friday night. The Heeley Hall was crammed with 150 eager quizzers in 17 teams, aiming to win the coveted trophy. It was a great night of good humoured competition as the teams battled over 8 rounds of questions. A delicious pie and pea supper was provided by parent Matt Carr -the perfect interval meal on a cold November night. The evening concluded with the team “ALMOST THERE” comprising of Meem, Jeremy, Marnie, Peter, Alia, Omar, Claire and Chell being declared winners.

A fantastic £1,000 was raised from the ticket sales and thanks go to Mrs Kitchen who kindly put the quiz together and hosted the event, Matt Carr for providing the food and the team of pupil helpers who kept the teams in order throughout the evening! We look forward to stealing the trophy from “Almost There” next year…
