Fundraising Quiz for Ipswich Arts Centre at University of Suffolk – 15th March

Contributed by Sarah Sheppard

I volunteer for the Ipswich Arts Centre, helping out on the finance side. We are trying to raise the funds to create a new hub for a diverse range of arts and cultural activities in St Clement’s Church (next to the Fore Street swimming pool), which has stood empty for over 30 years. As part of this goal, a fund-raising quiz was held in the waterfront building of the University of Suffolk on Wednesday 15th March.

This was the second such event so far for the Arts Centre. Although there wasn’t an IOG team participating on this occasion, a couple of members of the group joined one of the twelve teams competing. I couldn’t take part myself as I was helping out with the bar and the scoring through the evening. We raised in the region of £500 on the night and the evening was won by the team from Ensors after a tense tie-break question. As Ensors had sponsored the £50 top prize, they kindly donated it to the Arts Centre.

Look out for future fund-raising events for the Arts Centre, which are expected to include further quizzes as well as other events.
