The Somerset Rowing Committee hosted another successful Trivia Night in the Great Hall in May. More than 200 adults and children had an enjoyable evening in the major annual fundraiser for the rowing club.

The night had a TV Character theme, and some of the teams did a fantastic job in decorating their tables and dressing up for the event. Along with the Trivia and games the major fundraising efforts are boosted by the generous donors , who have donated anything from Subway vouchers , to the opportunity to “Row with an Olympic Gold Medallist” right through to a week long holiday.

I would like to extend a massive thankyou to Andrew Plume for being Quiz Master, Carl Eksteen for compiling the questions, LISA Plume and the gap students for compiling all of the scores. Also to the rowing committee and parents led by Karen Neumann, Michelle Smith and Fiona Liu who led the excellent organisation of the night.

Finally the night would not have been such a financial success if it weren’t for all of the generous donors and the supporters who bought all of the Auction items.
