Quiz raises four figures for Calderdale Charity

Published 2nd Jul 2015 by Emma Sinfield

Over £1200 was raised for a Halifax charity earlier this month when teams from across West Yorkshire took part in a quiz organised by Mid Yorkshire Chamber members Wilkinson Woodward Solicitors.

The event, which attracted over a hundred people and took place at the Shay Stadium, was organised in aid of the Next Step Trust, which supports adults with learning disabilities and complex health needs.

Teams - including many representing local businesses - competed for the Wilkinson Woodward Bearders Trophy, which was awarded to West Yorkshire legal firm Broadway House Chambers in a fiercely contested battle of wits.

Preet Sandhu, CEO of The Next Step Trust said, “The Next Step Trust provides a comprehensive day service provision alongside personalised services for the individuals we support. As a charity, we rely on the fund raising activities of our supporters and we are indebted to Wilkinson Woodward for their ongoing support.”

Managing Director of Wilkinson Woodward Maureen Cawthorn commented,

“We are very grateful to everyone who supported the event and helped to raise vital funds for such a worthy cause.”
