Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge Online Events  

All charities are struggling, due to the pandemic, to raise much needed funds. We at the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge have come up with innovative ways of helping our local charities by running virtual events. Our latest event was a Virtual Quiz night which was held on the cloud-based video conferencing service Zoom on 22nd October 2020.
We had 12 teams participating, with each team containing up to 4 people. Teams came from our local area, as well as from Weston super Mare, Bridgewater  and as far away as Coulsdon Manor Rotary Club, London. There were 8 rounds covering a variety of categories, and at the end  two teams tied on points, “White Shamrock” and “The Eagles”. The tie breaker question was, "What was the length of the Titanic, (in meters)". the nearest to the correct answer of 269 m, and the winning team, was, “The Eagles”.
This event enabled us to raise funds for Children's Hospice Southwest, the Cystic Fibrosis Trust and to help us continue our charitable work as a club.
We have had very positive feedback that all enjoyed the evening and they are looking forward to our next virtual event.
