Among the rounds were video questions from current and ex-Norwich City FC players including Simon Lappin, Carlton Morris, Adam Drury and Kenny McLean, while this year’s Mystery Guest round featured City centre-back Christoph Zimmermann.
A stellar score of 90 out of 103 by team Forces2Canaries – buoyed by perfect music, sport & table rounds – was eventually enough to secure victory.
It was a first ‘On the Buzzer, City!’ victory for the Canaries’ fan group, and they bagged themselves a prize haul that included Norwich City FC tickets and mugs, a signed shirt and ball, and of course, the chance to lift the famous quiz trophy.
Away from the quizzing action, the showing of a BT Sport feature on the Norwich City Powerchair Football Club, presented by CSF Trustee Jake Humphrey, helped remind everyone of the evening’s great cause.
A balloon raffle, post-quiz auction and head ‘n’ tails game boosted the night’s impressive fundraising total to £5,818.24.
The money will be used to support the #BuildTheNest campaign – the Foundation’s exciting project to build a groundbreaking community sports hub to benefit people from all walks of life in Norwich and Norfolk.
Prizes were kindly donated by a variety of supporters, including Hollywood Cinema, Gravity, Middletons, Leveridges Salon, ROARR!, Woodforde’s, Delia’s Canary Catering, Forces2Canaries, Vanilla Clouds Bakery, Barrett & Co, Tescos, Starbucks, Norwich City FC, Life Golf & Thursford Christmas Spectacular.
Many thanks to our hosts Rob Butler and Adrian Forbes, volunteers and event sponsors Arcadia Home Interiors.
