Hare Brained Quizzers Launch Mad March Hare 2018

Mad March Hare Quizzers Night 2017

16 teams hopped over to the Mad March Hare quiz at Swindon Town Football Club on 1st November and helped launch fund raising activities for the 2018 event. The fun quiz was lively and friendly and all quizzers also enjoyed a tasty ploughman’s supper. The evening was a great success and got the new year off to a great start, raising an impressive total of £722. The winning team, who beat fellow quizzers “Don’t Cry For Me Barcelona” in a tie breaker, was “Knobs and Knockers”!

This year, the quiz was attended by Stephanie Webb from Breast Cancer Now, who presented the Mad March Hare organising team with a special banner to celebrate the £100,000 raised for Breast Cancer Now by the event over its first decade. Stephanie said “The Mad March Hare team have worked tirelessly over the last decade to put on their annual event. This hard work and commitment has absolutely paid off since they reached an incredible £100,000 for our Breast Cancer Now’s research into breast cancer. It’s a true honour to have the support of this amazing team and we’re extremely thankful”.

Registration is now open for the 11th Mad March Hare event, which will take place on Sunday 25th March 2018, starting and finishing at Lydiard Park Academy. The 5km or 10km routes will take walkers, joggers and runners around a circular route of West Swindon and the popular Lydiard Park. To take part or volunteer at the event please log on to www.madmarchhare.org.uk, email at info@madmarchhare.org.uk or call 0845 6808064.
