At the start of the pandemic, the Horse and Groom at Woodgreen started to run weekly pub quizzes and to date £7,500 has been raised for three NHS charities – NHS Heroes in Bournemouth, the Salisbury Stars Appeal and the Friends of Fordingbridge Surgery.
The money has been raised from those participating online and from sales of the Woodgreen Lockdown Quiz Book. The collections were supplemented by generous contributions from Jason Schinkel, the landlord of the pub.
Anthony Swift, who runs the weekly quiz, said: “I’m incredibly grateful to all those who have supported us – to our regular customers who come and do the quiz live in the pub, those who join in online and to all those who have bought the book. This is a terrific total to be able to send to local charities which support all who work so hard in the NHS to protect us, and who have endured such unremitting pressure over the past two years.”
The quiz is presented live in The Horse and Groom every Tuesday at 7.30pm (booking a table is advised on 01725 510739), but those unable to join in person can follow live at www.patreon.com/anthonysquiz or every week on Wikiquiz at www.wikiquiz.org, or on the Wikiquiz Facebook page.
The Woodgreen Lockdown Quizzes, a collection of over 30 pub quizzes is available on Kindle as The Woodgreen Lockdown Quizzes eBook.
