PPA annual quiz raises £1600 for charity!

We are delighted to announce that our annual PPA quiz, held on Thursday 26th January, raised an impressive £1600 for our Chairman’s nominated 2019 charity – Dallaglio Rugby Works.

The quiz, held at the Royal Maritime Club, Old Portsmouth was hosted by Tracy Gard from Large & Gibson and Lorna Newnham from Glanvilles.

There were 38 teams, comprising PPA members, colleagues and friends; estate agents, solicitors, surveyors, bankers, letting agents, and auctioneers. The quiz started at 7.30pm with a break for food with 10 rounds, including 2 picture rounds. Our thanks go to the quizmaster, Mark Watson of Glanvilles, who did a fantastic job, and his two marking assistants,  Jemma Gard and Phil Reed.

Large & Gibson kindly sponsored the event- including the winners and runners up prizes and gifts to the organisers. They also generously donated two pairs of tickets to Goodwood House for a tour and an afternoon tea, and a board game for the raffle. The raffle sales on their own raised more than £500 for charity and the list of kind donations from local companies is below.

We are very grateful  for everyone that participated in the event – thank you doe coming – it was a brilliantly fun evening and a fabulous way to generate funds for this vitally important charity.
