BRAINY STUDENTS TO BID FOR AMSTERDAM TRIP  

 

Galaxy 105 is to give students the opportunity to win a trip to Amsterdam by holding a series of student pub quizzes at universities across Yorkshire this month.

 

On Sunday 28th October students at the University of Lincoln’s Cottingham Road campus will go head to head to win prizes such as HMV vouchers, Odeon cinema passes.

 

The winning teams at each university will take part in the grand final to be held at Sheffield University on Sunday 9th December, where six lucky students will win an exclusive, all expenses paid trip to Amsterdam.

 

 “It’s great to get students involved in events like these,” commented Andy Ranyard, Students’ Union Deputy President. “We’re expecting a great deal of interest especially with the tempting prize of a trip to Amsterdam.”

 

Galaxy 105 presenter Lucio Buffone said: “What a fantastic opportunity to be out drinking with your mates in the students’ union and to end the night with loads of prizes and possibly a trip to Amsterdam for six.”

 

The pub quiz is to be held at the Students’ Union bar on the Cottingham Road campus at 9pm. Photographers are welcome to attend.
