Right To Play Sports Quiz 2019
15 May 2019
Leonardo Royal Hotel London St Paul's
Thirty two teams representing many of the City’s top firms competed in the challenging, exciting and exceptionally popular quiz sponsored by Right To Play long-time sponsor, The Stars Group. The victorious team, Langham Hall, saw off tough competition from city’s finest financial institutions and leading law firms, to lift the coveted 2019 Right To Play trophy.
The special event put our guests sporting knowledge to the test with classic quiz questions, picture round and video questions from sporting legends including Anthony Joshua, Billie Jean King, and Mike Tindall. We were delighted to have so many of our Ambassadors in attendance showing their support, including former wheelchair Olympic basketball player, children's author and TV Presenter Ade Adepitan, Britain's most successful skier, Chemmy Alcott, table tennis pro Darius Knight, former Olympic speed skater turned celebrity fitness trainer, Sarah Lindsay, and Athletics star, Lina Nielsen.
The generosity of our guests meant that the evening raised £262,000 toward our life-changing work, enabling vulnerable children in our programmes across Africa, Asia and the Middle East, to take part in out play-based activities. The funds raised will ensure that more children stay in education, protect themselves from disease, and develop the key life skills that enable them to have a better future.
