Students and Lecturers compete at Charity quiz evening!

Posted on 23rd November 2016

The Chester University Psychology Society (CUPS) hosted the annual charity ‘Students Vs Lecturers’ quiz at the Student’s Union.

The department’s very own Dr Michelle Mattison was the master of ceremonies for the 5 gruelling rounds of intellectual battle (along with some less scholarly games thrown in!). Both teams competed fiercely but at the end of the evening it was the reigning champions, the students, who demonstrated the greater knowledge, cunning and wit to emerge victorious.

Lauren Cooper, the CUPS Charity Secretary, said this about the event: “Our Students vs Lecturers event was a huge success! It's was such a wonderful night, and great chance for students to get to know some of the lecturers, and all have fun together. To top it off we managed to make an incredible £152 for PAPYRUS (the prevention of young suicide charity)! This charity offers essential support for young people who need someone to listen to them, and through their awareness sessions and training, provide communities with the knowledge to help and support young people who are having suicidal thoughts. This cause is one CUPS is incredibly passionate about, and we so proud that the money we raise goes towards saving young lives. I know CUPS is so grateful for all the support, and generosity we receive, especially from the Psychology Department. We couldn't do what we do without their support, and their willingness to have a little fun to make some money for a good cause.”
