Norwood pops the questions

5 February 2020

About 200 people took part in Norwood’s annual Supper Quiz, held at the North Western Reform Synagogue in Temple Fortune on Sunday night. The popular event raised more than £15,000 for Norwood – which offers a lifeline to families in crisis and lifelong support to people with learning disabilities and autism.

Before the main event, there was a Q&A session with Michael, who works at the café in the charity’s Kennedy Leigh Family Centre. Michael told the audience that Norwood had turned his life around and, as well as giving him a job that he loves, has now also provided him with a place to live.

Not content with winning every heart in the room, Michael also managed to bag the mega-chocolate bar in the evening’s True or False round. He did, though, promise to share this with his friends at Sara’s Kitchen and one of them, Sophie, was on hand to help Michael carry off his bounty (actually Toblerone).

But the big winners of the evening were The Wine Collectors, who narrowly edged The Magnificent Seven in a tense tie-break. The evening ended when winners lived up to their team name and went up on stage to receive their prizes from the evening’s quiz-master, Alan “Voice of the Balls” Dedicoat.
