Comedy quiz raises record £18k for Muswell Hill cerebral palsy centre

Mitch and Janis Winehouse, Amy Winehouse’s parents, were excited to win first prize at the quiz, held at The Clissold Arms in Muswell Hill.

The pair are involved with the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy through the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which funds the music therapist position at the Muswell Hill centre.

Radio Four panalist Bob Mills led the quiz, orchestrating an audience of 120 people.

Host Natasha Bryne, a mother of one of the children who attends the London Centre for Cerebral Palsy school, spoke movingly about how early intervention has helped her son.

And even the losing table in the quiz did not leave empty handed; each person received a wooden spoon, carefully painted by children from the school.
