Accountants quiz night raises funds for Hospice

A quiz night organised by a Lancaster firm of accountants has raised funds to support Lancaster Chamber’s Syringe Driver Campaign for St John’s Hospice.

Over 50 local professionals challenged their grey matter in the annual Moore and Smalley quiz night held at The Royal Hotel & Barn in Lancaster. Teams from Eckersley, Reid Hamilton, Handelsbank, Barclays, Baines Wilson, NatWest, Harrison Drury, Joseph A Jones and JWK Solicitors, Lloyds and Lancaster Chamber all took part.

Barclays were crowned champions on the night after beating off competition from the rest of the teams, Reid Hamilton were worthy runners up.

More than £650 was raised on the night for the Hospice.

Gemma Beaton from Lancaster Chamber said ‘’ We would like to thank our members and local businesses who took part in the quiz and donated to the St Johns Hospice ‘Syringe Driver Campaign’ your support is much appreciated and will go a long way in providing vital services to patients and families in our local community’’.
