YTP Christmas Trivia
After a long year, YTP celebrated the end of 2020 by hosting a virtual Christmas Trivia. The evening was a fun and eventful night filled with a variety of general knowledge and transport related questions. We also hosted breakout rooms to allow participants to meet new people and interact with others throughout the night. The event allowed us to see the competitiveness and imaginative drawings from our members, as well as the great banter between our hosts Anita and Edward. It was a great way to end a difficult year.
