On the 11th January, staff at Coombe End Court hosted a “Quiz and Curry” night. A Wiltshire based Ukulele Group who have become firm friends of the home provided the musical entertainment during the interval, whilst the quiz teams enjoyed their curries.
There was a wide variety of questions asked over four rounds, with one round called “closest answer wins”, in which the answers were either huge numbers or outrageously exact, so an educated guess was often the only solution.
There were six teams, including the “Coombenders”, comprising Coombe End’s Home Manager - Amanda Palfrey, Head of Care - Kelly Edwards and their families. Resident Caroline Gregory also joined the fun. However, it was not the “Coombenders’”night, having achieved first place in the opening two rounds, they ended up coming last. Better luck next time!
After a very enjoyable night, it was “The Moonrakers” who emerged in the lead and won the £100 cash first prize, which they very generously donated back to the home.
Thank you to all who attended the quiz and to the Ukulele Group for a very lively performance. Thanks also to the Coombe End team who helped to cook, serve and clean up. The night raised a total of £161 for the residents’ amenity fund.
The home looks forward to hosting another successful event soon. For dates and information about upcoming events at Coombe End, please visit https://www.osjct.co.uk/coombeendcourt/.
