Accountants quiz night raises funds for Hospice

A quiz night organised by a Lancaster firm of accountants has raised funds for St John’s Hospice.

Over 50 local professionals challenged their grey matter in the annual MHA Moore and Smalley quiz night held at The Royal Hotel & Bar in Lancaster.

Teams from Eckersley, Handelsbank, Barclays, Baines Wilson, Cumberland Building Society, NatWest, Harrison Drury, Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand, HSBC and JWK Solicitors and Lloyds Bank all took part.

The team from the Cumberland Building Society were crowned champions on the night. The runners up place was decided on a tie-breaker question and NatWest just pipped Handelsbanken to the correct answer.

More than £700 was raised on the night for the Hospice.

Shirley Morch, Head of Finance and Resources from the hospice said. “Support from the local business community is much appreciated and the funds will help provide vital services to patients and families in our local community’’

Adam Parton, Partner at MHA Moore and Smalley, said “We are grateful to everyone in the Lancaster professional community for coming together to take part in the quiz and raise money for such a valuable community cause.”
