Chipping In for Charity

As this year’s sponsor for Shooting Star’s annual Chippy Quiz, we thought we would try our  hand at beating the other teams with our own crack team of quizzers.  

Shooting Star welcomed 17 teams and beat the record for the amount of money raised for the Charity of the Year with a grand total of £1,527.   

The money will go to Shooting Star’s Charity of the Year for 2022, Headway Lincolnshire in addition to the £730 raised from a sponsored cycle ride earlier in the year, bringing the overall figure to £2,257. 

Over 70 keen quizzers were put through their paces in eight categories including general knowledge, TV and film, music, Australia and current affairs, and at half time they enjoyed a fish and chip supper provided by the event hosts The Elite Fish and Chip Company.    

We created two special trophies for the event: 

The overall winner’s trophy was awarded to POP Branding who also won four framed promotional posters of Lincoln designed by University of Lincoln students. 

Best team name trophy went to DPS Digital who competed under the name Let’s Get Battered and they also received vouchers for The Elite restaurants and takeaways. 

A signed Lincoln City FC shirt donated by the Lincoln City Foundation was auctioned on the night and raised £150, and a raffle of 20 prizes took place, all items kindly donated by local Lincoln businesses or individuals.
