Over £3,000 was raised at the 2019 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 £13,000!

The annual Smailes Goldie quiz is a fantastic and one of our most popular fundraising events, and thanks to the efforts of the Smailes Goldie Group the event has now generated over £13,000 for the Smile Foundation in the last five 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, it’s always a great feel good event, you can feel everyone’s competitive streak start to appear as the rounds progress, this year we had Darren Lethem compere the event, it’s always great to work with Darren and he really added that little bit extra to the event!”

20 teams took part in this year’s quiz on Wednesday 6th March, as local business teams battled it out in a series of brain flexing rounds. Written by the Smile team, quiz topics included music, sport, film, facts about Hull and good old general knowledge.
