Radio Glan Clwyd has all the right answers…
in our ‘Big Quiz’ Night
On Saturday 22 April, a team of presenters and ward visitors came together to organise a ‘Big Quiz’ for the enjoyment of the patients of Glan Clwyd Hospital. From 6pm, presenters Andy Hayes and Brenda Jones were on air with music and chat, whilst ward visitors Olga, John, Eugene and Glyn distributed the quiz papers and pens to the patients on the wards of Glan Clwyd. At 7.10pm, the questions were read out on air. There were a mixture of questions which included testing patient’s knowledge of history, geography, wildlife, politics and literature. There were also a few music questions, which involved a short extract of a song and listeners had to guess the artist.
Once the quiz was over, the ward visitors went back to collect the papers, and worked hard to mark them and count up the scores. Brenda and Andy put the listeners out of their misery by revealing the correct answers and announcing the prize winners. The final job of the night was for the ward visitors, who went back to the participants to deliver the prizes, which included high quality toiletries, books, scented candles, sweets and chocolates, and goodies for the home. The programme on air finished at 8.30pm.
Top scorers in our ‘Big Quiz’ included Mary Booth on ward 19A, Steve Moxley on ward 7, a team who called themselves the ‘Where’s Wally Crew’ from ward 5, and Barrie and William on Ward 9. Calls also came in from listeners outside the hospital who had tuned in either online or on 1287AM who declared high scores, but were not eligible to win prizes.
Many thanks to everyone who took part in the quiz, the ward staff for their support, and all of the Radio Glan Clwyd helpers. A great night was had by all; Do look out for details of more interactive events in the coming months!
