STAR Pub Quiz! October 19, 2013

Posted by starglasgow in Uncategorized.


Last Sunday, we hosted a pub quiz to raise money for Scottish Detainee Visitors, a great local charity who provide various kinds of support for immigration and asylum detainees in Dungavel Removal Centre, the only UKBA detention centre in Scotland. To find out more about them, go to http://www.sdv.org.uk.

The Quiz was quite a success! We had nine teams of 4-6 people attending the quiz, which adds up to around 45 people. As well as the six rounds, we also help a raffle, with lots of vouchers for various places in Glasgow, and this also went down well. The final total of money we raised on the night was a whopping £157.61 – the people from SDV tell us that’ll do them 3 trips, and because they’ll be supporting around 15 people on each trip, this means our wee pub quiz raised enough to help 45 detainees!


Thanks to everyone who came along, and I hope you can make it to our next event – our annual sleepout – on the 25th (for more info or to sponsor the sleepout, go to justgiving.com/star-glasgow).
