On your marks…get set for St Gemma’s Questions of Sport Celebrity Quiz & Dinner - one of our best-loved fundraising dinners, returning especially for our 40th
Venue: Norman Hunter Suite, Elland Road
Date: Thursday 15th November
Doors open: 7pm
Hosted by ITV’s Duncan Wood, this star-spangled event sees teams competing in a fantastic interactive quiz, with questions being asked by sporting celebrities. In previous years, guests have rubbed shoulders with legends such as Steve Cram, Willie Thorne and Gabby Logan – to name but a few. This year’s sporting celebrities will be announced soon.
Held in the Norman Hunter Suite at Leeds United Football Club, the evening is a perfect way to entertain clients, colleagues, friends and family. It includes a sparkling drinks reception, four course meal, prize draw and a live auction.

Over the years, this event has raised over £209,000 – a staggering amount, which has helped us to continue providing the best possible palliative care to local people with terminal illnesses. Help us hit it out of the park this year and raise more than ever!
Book a table of 10 - £550
Sponsor a Quiz Round - £1200
The perfect way to promote your support of St Gemma’s. But not only that – you and your guests will be seated in prime position, with a sporting celebrity on your table. Your logo will also take pride of place - both in our programme and on the screens around the room during your quiz round. What’s more, you’ll have a half-page advert in the programme.
Donate a raffle prize
We need lots of raffle prizes to help the event go with a swing! Sporting memorabilia is particularly welcome!
Pre-order your wine for the evening
It’s a corker of a deal – not only will pre-ordering your wine save you money on the cost of wine on the night, but it will help raise additional funds for St Gemma’s. Your wine will also be waiting on your table when you arrive to save you queuing at the bar! The wine list is as follows:
Finca Valero Blanco – Spain - £17.00
Refreshing fruit flavours of vibrant peach and apple, lifted by lovely acidity on the finish
Old Press Shiraz – Australia - £17.00
A good ripe tannin structure, with rich plum and red berry fruit
Conto Vecchio Pinot Grigio Blush – £20.00
The nose is fruity, pleasant and slightly floral; particularly crisp and balanced palate
Tosti Prosecco – Italy- £24.00
Well-balanced and refreshing, with a delicate almond note
