Cornwall Council’s charity quiz raises money for two causes

On Thursday, the annual Cornwall Council charity quiz took place. This quiz has now been running for seven years. Teams from though-out the Council take part to help raise money for good causes, but to test their knowledge again other department for bragging rights, and to avoid the wooden spoon.

The quiz master is the Council’s Monitoring Officer, Richard Williams who sets the fiendishly difficult and damn-right obscure questions. The music round is an assault on the musical senses. The quiz team names are part of the event, and there are some great play on words.
