A record turn-out for the charity quiz...
More than 50 general knowledge buffs took part in BCR’s British-themed quiz which raised a bumper £1,000 for hospice care.
The event drew a record crowd of accountants, bankers and lawyers to the Residence Restaurant in Nantwich.
It was the fourth annual event staged by BCR and proceeds will be split between St Luke’s Cheshire Hospice in Winsford and Douglas Macmillan Hospice at Trentham.
Managing Director, Phil Wood, who was at the helm as quiz-master, said: “The evening continues to grow in popularity and this year we had a full house. All tables were sold to teams from local businesses who also gave generously to the raffle.”
“I am delighted the quiz has become so firmly established on the social calendar and raises such a sizeable sum for the hospices.”
Teams donated £50 to take part and were tested on their knowledge of all things British including questions on sport, geography, TV, music and current affairs.
Questions such as ‘What name is given to a female swan' (pen), ‘Where would you find the Great Orme’ (Llandudno) and ‘On a dart board which number is situated between 12 and 14’ (9) left many rivals stumped.
Victory went to a team of business managers from NatWest on Festival Park who carried off the BCR 2015 cup.
Phil added: “We were delighted once again to see so many businesses support the evening. There was good-humoured rivalry and some great banter between professionals from quite different backgrounds but united in an effort to support the hospices.”
Other companies attending included Lloyds, Barclays, Handelsbanken, Beswicks Legal, Bowcock & Pursail, Grindeys Solicitors, Myers Solicitors, Louis Taylor, Weaver Accountants and Howard Worth.
