29 Oct 10: Fundraising Quiz Night A Success
Trefoil hosted its first fundraising Quiz Night at Le Monde, George Street, Edinburgh on Wednesday 6 October 2010. Twelve teams signed up to take part in this fun event – some familiar faces and, we are delighted to say, some new ones. Ten rounds of questions followed covering a diverse range of subjects including film, general knowledge, the written word, the body and the dreaded Eurovision lyrics! The teams enjoyed the half time break pondering over cartoon characters as they were served a light supper to help sustain them through the second half.

After a closely fought battle, Quizbollah was the winning team with a score of 78.5 following by the Edinburgh Risk Management Ugly team with a score of 75 points. The booby prize went to The Missing Link team. Missing Link? They were just missing the answers!

Trefoil is delighted to announce that £462.63 was raised during the evening – an amount which surpassed our expectations and so we would like to sincerely thank all tho

29 Jun 10: Golf For Grants 2010
The Annual Trefoil Golf 4 Grants Tournament took place at Royal Burgess on Tuesday 8 June 2010. Fourteen teams took part in the competition on a typical Scottish summer day, ie it rained all day until the last team made it back to the Clubhouse! Each golfer collected a goody bag at the start of their round and the contents helped to sustain them. Our thanks go to A G Barr for the Strathmore Mineral Water, Tesco at Hermiston Gait for the sweet and savoury snacks and the Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre for the whisky.

The economic downturn meant a less than full complement of teams took part. However, the teams’ enthusiasm and support for Trefoil raised over £3,000. The silent auction raised over £500 and a varied selection of raffle prizes, many donated by the participating teams, helped to boost the total. The funds raised help Trefoil to support children and young people both at home here in Scotland and across the world.
