Dressed as a fairy and a Christmas pudding, dairy farmer Phill Smallwood, with help from the R.A.B.I committees, has been busy quizzing the people of Cheshire and Merseyside. The three festive quizzes raised more than £3,000.
The annual Cheshire Christmas quiz was held this year at the Willaston Sports and Social Club in Natwich and welcomed 85 locals. Phil, who organised the event with his wife Dorothy, dressed up as a ‘Christmas Fairy’ to entertain the guests. Cheshire Secretary Margaret Lawson cooked turkey baps for everyone and 55 portions of chips were ordered from the local chippy ‘Mick the Chip’.
The team from Reaseheath College, ‘North by South West’, won the quiz.
Following the success of Cheshire’s quiz, the event was introduced to Merseyside for the first time. Two quizzes took place in Halewood, near Liverpool, and Raby, in Wirral. Phil dressed as a Christmas pudding to test the locals while they tucked into turkey hot pot and turkey curry.
Georgina Lamb, regional manager for the North West, said: “I’d like to thank Barclays for match funding our Cheshire quiz and Steve Lowery from Barclays for attending. These events wouldn’t have happened without the hard work of Dorothy Sumner and Lorna Tyson and the Christmas joy brought by Phil and Dorothy Smallwood.”
