Stokesley Bear: January 2019
Teams from around the circuit gathered on 25 January to test their knowledge and memory about all things Yorkshire.
The prize to inspire our endeavours was a hamper of various Yorkshire goodies including cheese, tea and more. The Quiz was devised and delivered by our circuit treasurer, Malcolm, and refereed by Elaine, who kept track of the scores.
The staff didn't quite take the hamper as predicted at the circuit meeting as our numbers were sadly reduced. However, if there had been a prize for the most appropriately dressed team, we would have won that!
Aside from the competition, there was a serious point to the evening; to raise money for the Halo project in Middlesbrough. The Halo Project is this year's Charity supported by the local Methodist Women in Britain group. The project works to give, support, advice and training around forced marriages, honour based violence and FGM. They are based in Middlesbrough. You can find out more about them on their website: www.haloproject.org.uk
