Boon, Moore and White win Charity Quiz, Shigeo Brown wins iPad

ELTCharityQuiz.JPG The Charity Quiz, held at the ETJ Tokyo Expo on Saturday afternoon, saw a large crowd watch The Bungling Boffins (Andy Boon, John Moore and David White) defeat Losing Their Fizz (Philip Shigeo Brown, Colin Skeates and Rob Waring) and claim 50,000 yen (over $600) for their charity, Animal Refuge Kansai (ARK). In third place were The Trailblazers (Irene Sugizaki, Maricris Jayoma and Rizalyn Pascual ) who made a valiant effort but wished there had been more questions on Let's Go!

Everyone in the audience received a lottery ticket to win an Apple iPad but it was contestant Philip Shigeo Brown whose number came up and, in a nerve-wracking finale, answered 3 ELT-related questions to claim a brand new iPad.

The 50,000 yen prize and iPad were donated by the discount book service, with additional audience prizes from Oxford University Press.

A full report on the Tokyo ETJ Expo will be posted shortly. More pictures of the Charity Quiz winners can be seen on the Facebook page.
