Northern Sports Quiz 2017
On Thursday 2 March, 200 sports fans gathered at the AJ Bell Stadium for the UJIA Northern Sports Quiz 2017, for a night of sporting trivia and laughs. Award winning LBC Scores presenter Ian Payne hosted the 5 round quiz, and Committee member Barrie Taube made the night’s appeal for UJIA. The event raised a whopping £48,000 for The Equalizer; a project UJIA is so proud to support.
The Equalizer programme combines football training with extra academic support to give disadvantaged children a much better start in life. The children learn the values of tolerance and mutual respect, both on and off the pitch, and this is crucial in a region which is 55% Arab and 45% Jewish. The Equalizer programme operates across all of Israel’s communities, focusing on the most deprived neighbourhoods to support children through educational enrichment activities.
Reich Insurance Brokers triumphed, beating 21 other teams to victory, and taking home the UJIA Northern Sports Quiz 2017 trophy. Alongside the interactive quiz, guests were entertained by various games, including the Red Green Penalty Miss Score game, which saw Committee member Marc Levy reign supreme.
