What does an orangutan, cricket, an SD card and The Monument have in common? They all featured in the City Giving Day inter livery quiz in aid of the Lord Mayor’s Appeal. Members of the Marketors’ Company formed the ‘Marvellous Marketors’ to pit their wits against 26 other teams.
The team consisted of Liveryman Roz Morris, Liveryman Debbie Pearson, Liveryman Gill Whitelegg, Liveryman Emyr Williams and Past Master Sue Garland Worthington OBE and captained by new Freeman Hazel Baker. They took a strong lead in the first three rounds (London, Technology and music of major sports programmes). The final round was World Animals and resulted with the team reaching a respectable score of 37/40. The team lost the top spot by one point, on one contentious answer to a very simple question: ‘What do bees feed their larvae?’ Do you know the right answer?
