Christmas Toy Appeal 2018: Annual quiz cancelled
PUBLISHED: 16:00 04 December 2018
The annual Christmas quiz for the toy appeal has unfortunately been cancelled.
Due to a lack of teams signing up, the quiz, which was due to take place on Thursday, will not go ahead.
The quiz is usually an excellent source of fundraising for the Newham Recorder’s and Community Links’ appeal, but lack of demand this year has made it unfeasible to run.
“It’s disappointing,” said former Recorder editor and patron of the appeal, Colin Grainger.
“We only had four teams sign up this year, but because of hiring a venue it’s not worth it unless we have about 10.
“One year it was snowing and we even had 15 teams turn up.”
No one is more disappointed than the Recorder reporters themselves, who were raring to go with a team of quiz aficionados.
