Could they BE anymore excited?


A local charity is hosting a quiz night based on the hit TV show F.R.I.E.N.D.S, with proceeds helping to free enslaved families in India.

The fundraiser will challenge islanders to know their Unagi from their salmon skin rolls as part of Guernsey for Freedom’s ‘One Island, One Village’ campaign.

Event organiser and charity co-ordinator Chrissie Ferbrache hosted a F.R.I.E.N.D.S-themed quiz in 2018, and was thrilled by its success.

“All those who attended enjoyed the opportunity to answer questions on a TV show that they love,” she said. “The various rounds were lots of fun, and we anticipate it to be much the same this year.”

The charity, which only recently rebranded as Guernsey for Freedom, is focused on abolitionist activities to fight against modern slavery and all proceeds from the quiz will go towards efforts in India.

“Our charity is made of wonderful volunteers who live in Guernsey with different jobs and at different stages of life,” said Kevin Bales, Trustee for the charity. “What they do share is a love of freedom, and a commitment to ending slavery forever. Their efforts have already led to hundreds of people coming out of slavery.”

The quiz takes place on Saturday 7 November at the Sports Hall of the Guernsey Institute at the Les Ozouets campus. Tables of six can be purchased at £10 per head, which also includes dinner.
