Compass crowned quiz champions

A whopping £56,000 was raised on Monday evening at our 13th annual Big Fat Quiz! Taking place at our brand new home of the London Hilton on Park Lane, the evening saw the great and the good of the hospitality industry battle it out to be crowned quiz champion.

The quiz, hosted by legendary DJ Pat Sharp, saw the team from Compass crowned champions out of the 39 competitive teams who took part. It was a closely fought battle with Henry Hirst Provisions in second place and Bidfood coming third.

There were no soggy chips at this quiz as our 400 guests enjoyed a phenomenal three course meal including a raspberry pistachio mille feuille for dessert made by the winners of Bake Off: The Professionals 2018, Emmanuel Bonneau & Sam Leatherby. Guests were also able to bid on star auction lots, hosted by celebrated chef and HA Patron Brian Turner CBE, including an overnight stay for two guests at The Vineyard including five course dinner and two tickets for ‘Strictly Come Dancing – The Professionals’ at the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff.

We are indebted to all of our sponsors, without whom the evening wouldn’t have been possible. Sincerest thanks to Bidfood, London Hilton on Park Lane, Syft, Fusion FSM and all those you see listed above.

If you’d like to host your own quiz to raise funds for Hospitality Action, or you have a brand new fundraising idea you’re keen to get off the ground, please give me a ring on 020 3004 5504 to talk things through.
