Quiz tribute to Peter

Players from a Shropshire quiz league have donated £750 to Severn Hospice, which cared for their longstanding chair in his final days. Members of Bridgnorth Trivia Quiz League have donated the money to the hospice in honour of Peter Davison, who passed away in 2017. Peter was the chair of the quiz league for many years, as well as a former chair of the annual Bridgnorth Walk.

The 16-team league, which has been running since 1990, donates money to a local charity every year through the weekly subscriptions paid by players. The teams pit their wits against each other over the winter months, with the eventual winners being presented with a trophy, which has now been named the Peter Davison Trophy in memory of its esteemed chair.

Yvonne Weston, Peter’s sister, says, “It’s wonderful that there’s going to be a trophy in Peter’s name and he would be very humbled, just as we are very proud. He loved being involved in the quiz league and he had some good friends in Bridgnorth.”
