THP Solicitor’s Quiz Raises £2000 for Henley Music School

THP Solicitors hosted their second quiz in aid of Henley Music School (HMS) last Friday night at Henley Rugby Club.

Ten teams battled against each other over two picture rounds (films and countries) then Music, Sport, Current Affairs, Food & Drink, General Knowledge and the “More or Less” round (e.g. does the average lightning strike contain more or less energy than needed to toast 16,000 slices of toast?!  There was also a spot prize round to see who could get the closest to an answer to a question which fused two of HMS’s Founder Laura Reineke’s passions (violin and swimming) – If you take the average length of a vibrating string on a violin, how many violins would you need to take their strings to span the shortest distance across the English channel?”

The Polyglamorous team (pictured above) (Georgina & John Hyde, Si Sapsworth & Guy Harvey, Will & Clair Hart, Charlie & Simon Turner) came out top beating Could Have Been a Contender team (Richard Pinches, Liz Madgwick Howard, Nicola Taylor and friends.

Whilst guests enjoyed a curry dinner in the interval, they were also treated to a musical interlude by two HMS students.

Richard Rodway, Partner at THP Solicitors and Quizmaster said, “We’re always only too happy to support the Henley Music School where we can, and a quiz night in Henley is always good fun, so hopefully everyone had a fun, and dare I say educational, evening.  Really great to have raised a terrific sum for the school, which so badly needs in support and is reliant on fundraising.  Big thanks to to Henley Rugby Club for hosting us all.”

Laura Reineke added, “We at HMS are delighted with the amazing amount raised! THP are such amazing community supporters, and Richard Rodway spent hours doing all the questions. We’d like to thank them & all the quizzers! It was a really fun evening.”
