The Ultimate Pub Quiz For Centrepoint

David attended The Ultimate Pub Quiz at Shoreditch House to raise over £40,000 in vital funds for youth homelessness charity Centrepoint last night.

Charity ambassador, Kirsty Young, who has supported Centrepoint for over 12 years took to the hot seat as quizmaster picking celebrities' brains.
Team captains and celebrities on the night included Steve Coogan, Rob Brydon, Lisa Maxwell, Xander Armstrong, Richard Bacon, and Shane Ritchie. Teaming up with Centrepoint corporate supporters, the teams were quizzed on a series of questions spanning the 40 years since Centrepoint was founded, in which it has supported over 70,000 homeless young people.

Kirsty said "I have been a Centrepoint ambassador since 1997 and firmly believe in the value of the charity’s work. It is vital that we work together to end youth homelessness and ensure vulnerable young people are given a chance in life."
Seyi Obakin Centrepoint’s CEO said: "Centrepoint supports over 800 young people everyday and this event has helped to raise much needed funds to provide more homeless young people with a safe place to sleep, where they can start to build a brighter future. It will also keep the issue of homelessness in our minds during the current harsh winter".
The teams were given some respite from the brain busting questions as proceeding paused and celebrities were auctioned for the second round of the quiz to teams with the highest bids.

The winning team from law firm Herbert Smith receive the winners trophy.
The winning team, triumphing above the other 22 teams, was The Herberts, from top London law firm, Herbert Smith, who also supported Centrepoint's annual Sleep Out event in Spitalfields Market, raising awareness of the plight of homeless young people in November.
The quiz followed Centrepoint’s recent 40th anniversary celebrations during which Centrepoint’s Patron Prince William slept out in sub zero temperatures to raise awareness of youth homelessness and gain a personal understanding of the plight of homeless young people across the UK.
