Over 60's Quiz Afternoon

Published on 20 August 2015 Categories: Events,  Volunteering Services,  Transform

Last week the Transform Intergenerational Befriending project hosted its first senior quiz event for older people in Midlothian and a great afternoon was had by all. Seven groups from across Midlothian entered the competition, with many travelling from Social Housing complexes. A number of young volunteers were on hand to help the teams through the five quiz rounds of ‘Capital Cities’, ‘Music’, ‘General Knowledge’, ‘Film’ and ‘Local Knowledge’. The teams’ scores were very close, but in the end the Button Brains team were declared the outright winners and proudly received the Champion’s Trophy and a hamper of treats. We would like to thank all of those who attended and to the local businesses who supported the event by making kind donations to the raffle. The event was a great success in bringing older and younger generations together and we hope to run another over 60’s quiz in the future.
