MBC – one of 549 churches to help Tearfund raise vitally needed cash

20 November 2019

Michael Grayson who headed up MBC’s contribution to Tearfund’s Big Quiz Night reports…

On the night itself we counted just over 70 people including children, and by the time we have added in Gift Aid we hope to be able to send Tearfund way over £600.

With our teams making up a nationwide total of more than 25,000 quizzers we began proceedings with a round called Play-Doh Pictionary. This was intended for the children but it soon engaged all the adults causing much laughter.

In all there were eight rounds of questions covering: books, stage and screen, natural world, geography, music, sport, history and a picture round. This was a great way of doing things as it meant that absolutely everyone could make a contribution.

As for reaction, one of our oldest members said they really enjoyed it and even a teenager was heard to say to a friend who didn’t come that they should have as it was really good. 

A short video about the work of Tearfund in Nigeria highlighting the plight of those who have lost family and all their possessions showed how this amazing Christian charity will use the money that we and all the others quizzers gave to share the love of Jesus.

I know it’s still a full year off but as soon as you get your hands on a 2020 diary pop Saturday Nov 14th in it… that’s the date of Tearfund Big Quiz Night next year.
