Ultimate News Quiz winners — January 2008

Another great night was had by one and all at the Ultimate News Quiz and the 2008 winner came from the brainy end of the broadcast spectrum with Radio 4 coming out top of the class followed by last year’s winner, ITV News, in second and first timers Endemol in 3rd place.

It looks like we’ve increased the amount of money raised for our charities NCH and SPW by a staggering 50% to more than £60,000, helped by some very generous auction bidding.

Highlight of the night was Kirsty Young paying an extraordinary £1,400 for a pair of M&S jockey pants signed by Jeremy Paxman!

Most of our teams have already said they want to come back again next year, so to avoid disappointment book your tables early!

Thanks to all our generous guests and supporters.
