UJIA Northern Sports Quiz 2018
An incredible £47,000 has been raised at the third UJIA Northern Sports Quiz, held on Thursday 14 June 2018 at Hotel Football and attended by over 180 guests. The lively and high tech quiz was presented by Olympic Hockey gold medallist Sam Quek MBE.
The money raised will support The Equalizer Programme, winner of the 2018 UEFA Foundation for Children Award, which 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.
After fierce competition, WHN Solicitors triumphed, beating 18 other teams to victory, and taking home the UJIA Northern Sports Quiz trophy.
