Over £2,500 was raised at the 2018 Smailes Goldie Big Fat Quiz of the Year held at the Country Park Inn, bringing the total amount raised over the last for years to in excess of £10,000!

The annual Smailes Goldie quiz is one of our most popular fundraising events and thanks to the efforts of the Smailes Goldie Group the event has now generated over £10,000 for the Smile Foundation in the last four years.

Laura Cox from Smile who organised the event in conjunction with Smailes Goldie was thrilled with the evening:

“The atmosphere in the room was really exciting, every team wanted to win and you could feel the competitiveness in the air!”

18 teams took part in this year’s quiz on Thursday, March 8th, as local business teams battled it out in a series of brain flexing rounds. Hosted by the Smile team, quiz topics included music, sport, film and facts about Hull from 2017.

With an impressive score, Kingsbridge Corporate Solutions were crowned the winners, followed by Gosschalks Solicitors in second place and Nippon Gohsei in third.
