The World’s Greatest Quiz Night 2015

On 15th September the second annual World’s Greatest Quiz Night, organsised in association with Quintessentially Foundation, raised in excess of £51,000 for Dimbleby Cancer Care.

Over 280 guests, including actor Simon Callow, Sewing Bee’s Patrick Grant and TV’s Katie Derham packed into the stunning riverside marquee on the banks of the River Thames at St Thomas’ Hospital for the evening hosted by Jonathan Dimbleby and Claudia Winkleman.

The event was sponsored by www.soakandsleep.com and all money raised will go towards the charity’s £500,000 Care For The Future Appeal which seeks to support and grow the cancer support services at Guy’s and St Thomas’ when the new Guy’s Cancer Centre opens in a year’s time.
