600 quizzers, 12 venues and
£44,000 raised!

Save Our Suffolk Estuary Pub Quiz raises a record amount for flood defences. 
With the questions written, quizmasters mic'd up and pints poured, over 600 quizzers joined us at Orford Town Hall, The Lighthouse in Aldeburgh and 10 pubs along the estuary on Friday 22nd November for the Save Our Suffolk Estuary Pub Quiz 2019.

Testing local knowledge in our So You Thought You Knew Suffolk county quiz, this community fundraiser was a roaring success. An army of enthusiastic volunteers worked together with pub landlords to create a sparkling evening of entertainment.

With match funding, the total amount raised was £44,000, topping the significant amount raised at the 2017 Pub Quiz. Congratulations go to 'Up The Alde', the highest-scoring team across all 12 venues, who scored an impressive 76 at The Plough & Sail in Snape. 

Thanks to all the landlords, pub hosts, volunteers and quizmasters, together with our local event sponsors, Best Of Suffolk and Pinney's Of Orford, who by supporting us have allowed 100% of the funds raised to be used towards vital flood defences along the estuary, for which we are enormously grateful.
