Nov 2022: A round-up of the annual 'Just a Sports Quiz'

On 11th November 2022, over 400 sports fans gathered at  BT Murrayfield Stadium for a sold-out evening of sporting banter and trivia, plus the chance to learn a little bit about MND and our research, A great night was had by all and we are delighted to announce that the evening raised over £20,000! A fantastic result!

Congratulations to the overall winners 'Whiskey Syndicate', their table won with a score of 87.5. In last place, and the worthy winners of the "The Wooden Spoon" was 'Sir JK's All Stars', who scored 41.5. Each team member of their team received their own bespoke wooden spoon!

We'd like to thank all the table hosts and their guests for a fun packed evening. In particular we would like to thank our Centre founders Euan and Donald MacDonald, for their unwavering support and commitment to MND research at the Euan MacDonald Centre. Scottish Curling for encouraging everyone to be active on the night and try floor curling. Our special thanks also to Scott Hastings and Scott Wilson whose incredible support and attendance have ensured that this year's event was yet another enormous success. Finally a big thank you to the amazing team led by the unflappable Leisa Thomas at the University of Edinburgh's Development and Alumni Department, who put in many hours behind the scenes in order to deliver the 2022 Just a Sports Quiz.
