Two smart teams took out the top two places in our ‘Lifting the Lid’ Quiz at One Fat Bird on Sunday night 12 November, ‘Trump’s Legal Team’ being winners on 86.5 points closely followed by a team called ‘Its Not Covid’ on 80 points.  Rotary teams from Wellington, Mt Victoria and Karori did not fare so well. There were many hard questions, but it proved again, a good mix of young and old could cover everything from geographic questions, the arts, young singers and bands and matching images. Not so easy for us oldies as one Rotarian was heard to say when the results came in.

Our warmest thanks and again extended to Karori Arts and Crafts for providing art works for auction and for our raffle and to Gamboni’s Deli in Karori for sponsoring a magnificent prize for the event.

This was a great occasion with thanks to the 14 teams that took part to make the Quiz evening another success in continued Rotary support for counselling services for those struggling with mental health issues at secondary and intermediate schools in the Wellington area.

Area Governor David Shackleton speaking at the start of the Quiz said there is very considerable concern in our local schools around a significant increase in the number of students with mental health issues being reported needing counselling services, making Rotary’s contribution to this project a vital need.
