Big film quiz raises money for Saffron Screen

SAFFRON Screen’s second annual BIG Film Quiz has raised almost �1,000 towards the ongoing running costs of the independent cinema.

Held at the United Reformed Church Hall, the event saw 11 teams battle it out, testing their film trivia, enjoying a fun night and raising money to support the not-for-profit organisation.

Although the light-hearted competition was fierce, ‘Nexus 5’ took the top prize, and the night raised a total of �880.

Nexus 5 team included Sarah Colliety, Tasha and Sean Donelan, John, Sarah Kirkpatrick and Mark Starte. Reflecting on the night, team captain Mark Starte said: “We all very much enjoyed this exciting evening of film fun and look forward to vigorously defending our title next year.”

Chairman fo Saffron Screen, Rebecca del Tufo, said: “The money raised through the BIG Film Quiz and our Friends of Saffron Screen scheme ensures that Saffron Screen can meet costs and keep ticket prices lower than our competitors.
