On the 26 March SDN had its first fund raising pub quiz at the Crown in Abbey Forgate, Shrewsbury – a big thanks to the landlord and landlady for their generosity and support in hosting and supplying prizes! The weather may have reduced numbers so the Deaf team form Shrewsbury Deaf club ended up dividing in two to create a Deaf pub quiz (another first for Shrewsbury) with hearing team members (there were only three of us) joining either on of the teams.
The questions were wide ranging and everyone seemed to have a area of expertise apart form the dreaded picture round WW11 posters – out of about 20 we only managed to get one: ‘Keep calm and carry on’! But it was a fun night for all – Kathy Jones chair of Shrewsbury deaf club said, “It was a great night and a nice change to get out and do something different in the week”
We would like to run another Quiz in the near future and hopefully we can gather a few more teams to take on the ‘Deaf champions’ and raise a few funds for the work of SDN.
