Nepal Fundraising Quiz


The Nepalese Menu being fully embraced by hungry competitors…

Huge congratulations to Billie France and Jackie Bullen for organising and running a superb night’s entertainment and fun at The Plough – and all to raise funds for Nepal. With a combination of quiz entries, raffle proceeds and donations, £440 was raised for the victims of the Nepal Earthquake.

Sixty entrants from both Shepreth and the surrounding villages, pitched their wits and knowledge against quizmaster Jackie Bullen for seven rounds of challenging questions in a bid to win the first prize of a Plough Voucher and brace of wines.

The Plough’s kitchen designed and presented a Nepalese style menu to accompany the quiz, and donated £1 for every Nepalese dish ordered. In the end, our hungry hopefuls munched their way through 66 dishes of Curries, Pakoras, Samosas and Sekuwas (Skewers) adding £66 to the fundraising.

Much conferring, but no mobile phones allowed!

One of the highlights of the evening was the “Plough Limerick” Competition. Each team was asked to submit a limerick starting with the line “As I sat at The Plough last night…” There were plenty of witty submissions, alongside some very flattering ones, but the winning entry, as judged by Guv’nors, Jo and Nick Davis was as follows:-

All entries were hugely entertaining and a further selection will be posted up around The Plough shortly.

Generous donations of raffle prizes were received from Skin Care Melbourn, Willer’s Mill, Kingsway Golf, Bury Lane, Esse, Shirley Chapman, Teacake, Fieldgate Nurseries and Tesco. Huge thanks to you all.

Intense disappointment as team 6 realise they’re coming second……



Another little sip will help, I’m sure…….

Thanks once again to all involved in making this evening both hugely enjoyable, and a grand success!
