The Quiz

After the concert we thought we should do something else that was new and fun and would help keep people’s spirits up during lockdown. We hit upon the brilliant idea of holding a quiz. We thought people could have fun testing their knowledge about Serbian and Serbs in Britain but combine it with raising money for the Round Table’s work in the Serbian language. We had a lot of fun ourselves drawing up the questions and learnt a lot more about all things Serbian. The quiz was held on Vidovdan, 28th June and was a lot of fun and the entry fee and generous donations raised £1000. Having gone so well we have decided to hold another quiz in the autumn, after the holidays.
Srpski siti klub (SSK) ovom prilikom želi da vas obavesti da je punoletnim državljanima Srbije koji privremeno ili stalno borave u Velikoj Britaniji uskraćeno pravo glasa na ovogodišnjim izborima za Narodnu skupštinu Republike Srbije. Prema našim informacijma, Ambasadi Republike Srbije u Londonu se uredno prijavilo više od 100 srpskih...
Emboldened by this experience the management committee decided it wanted to do something to support and thank the health systems in Britain and Serbia who were doing so much to protect and look after the general public in both countries. We decided to hold an on-line fundraising concert on 3rd May 2020 with any funds raised being split equally between Serbia and Britain. The ‘We are in this Together Concert’, was organised and co-hosted by Lazar Vukovic, a member of the Serbian Council management committee and featured RJ Gibb (son of the late Robin Gibb of the the Bee Gee’s), the Serbian pop star Boban Rajovic, a magician Andrew Eborn , who also co-hosted the event and there were guest appearances from by Toyah Wilcox and Tony Moore. The concert which had ….views raised £1,150 for the NHS and Lifeline in Serbia. Full concert available here: RJ Gibb & Boban Rajovic – ‘How deep is your love’ in aid of the NHS & Lifeline Serbia
Like all other organisations the Serbian Council was knocked sideways by the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown and feared that it would have to cease its operations until things went back to a new normal. However, members of the Management Committee felt that it was unacceptable to go into hibernation and seemingly abandon members just at the time they needed the organisation most. The first challenge was to sort out how the Management Committee itself could meet during lockdown to discuss how the organisation could operate and what it could do in these unprecedented times. The solution was to use Zoom to hold virtual management committee meetings. These turned out to be much more successful than had been anticipated – the technology was easy to use and reliable, people could be involved wherever they were and people felt that their time was being used efficiently and effectively because they weren’t wasting time travelling to meetings. This positive experience liberated the management..
