Businesses turned out in force to a St George’s Day charity quiz to raise cash for hospice care in Shropshire.
The event, organised by our Shrewsbury branch, drew lawyers, accountants and bankers to The Mytton and Mermaid pub, where £750 was raised for Severn Hospice.
Teams of general knowledge buffs donated £50 to participate and were tested on their knowledge of all things British including questions on sport, geography, entertainment, music and current affairs.
Solicitors from Aaron & Partners, PCB Law, Hatchers, McLoughlin & Co and FBC Manby Bowdler did battle against accountants from Whittingham Riddell and bankers from NatWest in Shrewsbury.
Legal eagles from Aaron & Partners triumphed with PCB in second place.
The event proved such a success, we now plan to make it an annual event for the hospice.
BCR managing director Phil Wood, who was at the helm as quiz-master, said: “This was our first quiz in Shrewsbury and we were thrilled at the support from local businesses.”
Any business needing a free consultation with BCR should call 0333 014 3454.
