Staff and residents from Barchester’s Moors Manor care home, in St Leonards, joined fellow keen quizzers from over 250 Barchester care homes and hospitals across the whole of the UK, including Wales, Scotland, Jersey and the Isle of Wight, to put their collective general knowledge to the test.
The inaugural Barchester Big Quiz of the Year took place on 9th January 2024 when Moors Manor got super competitive and took on its sister homes from all over the country to find out which Barchester home or hospital had the best quizzers. From historical humdingers and musical musings to pictorial puzzlers and connective conundrums, the homes battled it out to find out who would prevail.
General Manager, Gemma Chalkley said: “We’ve got some excellent quizzers at our home, we are very competitive – our residents love taking part in anything where winning is involved and collectively their general knowledge is pretty phenomenal!”
Marianne Timberlake, resident at Moors Manor Care Home said: “It has been a lovely afternoon. It was wonderful to see everyone in all the other homes joining in. I really enjoyed getting together with my fellow residents to take on the other homes – it is amazing how competitive everyone gets!”
