    Over £1,400 raised at Mayhew’s first Quiz Night!

    Last Thursday, over 90 people gathered at Paradise by way of Kensal Green, to test their knowledge and try their luck at Mayhew’s very first pub quiz night sponsored by Riverford North West London.

    Paradise had generously donated the venue as well as a £50 bar voucher for the winning team, and as expected, teams ‘fought like cats and dogs’ to claim first prize!

    Entrants were divided into teams of six or less and tasked with answering eight themed rounds, led by master quiz host Simon London from 7th Heaven (who very kindly donated his time and expertise.)

    With animals featuring heavily in the questions, and a ‘poopie’ prize on offer for the losers, it was a real ‘dog-eat-dog’ challenge – participants could also decide to double their points on one carefully chosen round, and donate to Mayhew to buy clues throughout.

    With a tombola, a raffle and a  brief visit from our furry friend Mya squeezed into the schedule, the evening’s entertainment stretched on far into the night – but the winners were eventually declared, and ‘Team Martel’ took home the £50 Paradise voucher, plus a goody bag from Mayhew each!

    However, the real winners are of course the cats, dogs and communities helped by Mayhew. We are absolutely thrilled to have raised over £1,400 from the quiz night, which will go directly towards helping animals and people in need.

    “We can’t thank everyone enough for coming out to support Mayhew with their friends and family at our first Quiz Night! Each team looked to be having an incredible time, and we are now excited to plan the next one!”

    CEO, Mayhew

    We would also like to say a huge thank you to local artist Rob Buchinger-Jones, who provided a personalised drawing to give-away in our raffle, and our generous event sponsors, Riverford North West London who donated a fruit and veg box. Riverford deliver fresh, seasonal and 100% organic food directly from their farms to your door – if you’d like find out more and order a veg box, you can visit their website here.

    This may have been our first quiz, but it definitely won’t be our last – keep your eyes peeled for future announcements!
