As Phil was a quiz lover, our fundraising activities have always included an annual quiz in tribute of him. The first Penfold Quiz was held in June 1996 and the final quiz in March 2020. We have raised nearly £100,000 from these as well as other fundraising events. While we always make a donation to Ward D10 and Haematology Department, Addenbrooke's Hospital Cambridge, where 'Penfold' was treated, we also supported many other local good causes.
The Final Penfold Quiz was held on the 13th March 2020 and was won by Death by Monkeys on a tie break with Aardley Awake. Can We Phone a Friend came third, and we raised a total of £2,043.30. We will be presenting £1,724 to Ward D10 Addenbrookes Hospital and the MAGPAS air ambulance when the current COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
The 2019 Penfold Quiz was held on the 15th March and was won by Wasted Nuns on a tiebreak with Lemon Drop Kids. Nil Points came third. We raised £1,785.00 during the evening and will donate £500 to Ward D10 Addenbrookes Hospital Cambridge and a further £1,000.00 to Carla Delft for essential modifications to her sons wheelchair and also help provide a sensory room.
The 2018 Penfold Quiz was held on the 16th March and was won by No Parking on a tiebreak question with Lemon Drop Kids. We raised £1,860.00 during the evening and again donated £1,000 to Ward D10 Addenbrookes hospital Cambridge and also £1,000.00 to the Macmillan Woodlands Centre at Hinchingbrooke Hospital.
