Over 200 charity supporters got down to quizness and took part in The BIG Rockinghorse Easter Quiz on Thursday 29 March.

The fundraising event was held at the British Airways i360 on Brighton seafront, where 29 teams from local businesses gathered to kick-start their Bank Holiday four-day weekend.

Sponsored by Leaders Letting and Estate Agents, the Easter-themed quiz was hosted by Gareth Sheppard from Quiz Host UK and raised £7,606 for Rockinghorse children’s charity. Money was raised through ticket sales as well as a lucky dip and raffle held on the night.

With quiz-rounds including Easter trivia, much-loved movies and Brighton fact or fiction, it’s the karaoke round – that sees team players sing to score much-needed points – which always proves popular during the event. Team members are also encouraged to air guitar and perform dance routines during the songs to score bonus points.

The team from Hove-based digital agency Search Seven were crowned The BIG Rockinghorse Easter Quiz winners for 2018, taking home the trophy and bubbly.

Hannah Seltzer, Events Fundraising Manager at Rockinghorse, said: “A huge thank you to everyone who attended our annual Rockinghorse Spring quiz. We’re so grateful for the support received and to our event sponsors Leaders. A fantastic amount of money has been raised and we hope to see everyone again in November at our Halloween-themed quiz!”

Rockinghorse is the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s Hospital in Brighton, and a vital supporter of the neighbouring Trevor Mann Baby Unit.
