All the SarcoidosisUK National Quiz events throughout April were fantastically successful! Thank you to the amazing volunteers who helped make them happen and to everyone who came to support their local quiz.
In total the Quiz raised £6,800! This figure will be doubled by the British Lung Foundation and put towards our 20th Anniversary Campaign.
There was a winning team at each local event. All these winning teams have now been pitted against each other for the coveted national prize of the SarcoidosisUK National Trophy and a case of Champagne…
Congratulations to ‘Company B’ team from Cornwall (pictured below) who scored a massive 99 points to be crowned SarcoidosisUK National Quiz Winners 2018!
1st Place – ‘Company B’ – Cornwall and Devon – 99pts
2nd Place – ‘The Unamed’ – London – 95pts
3rd Place – ‘Quizzy Rascals’ – Norwich – 89pts
“It wasn’t just about the money raised, more importantly it was about every one of the people attending went away with a new awareness of the fact this disease even exists, and they’re all talking about it now!! Let’s hope this is the start of bigger and better things to come for fundraising and awareness!”
