On Thursday 22nd October, businesses from across Huddersfield came together to take part in Sheards Accountancy’s annual quiz night in aid of The Town Foundation.
The event, held at Huddersfield RUFC had 23 teams of four including Huddersfield Town’s commercial team, all battling to become Huddersfield’s leading brainboxes.
Kevin Sanders, Client Manager at Sheards pulled together yet another brain baffling quiz that put local businesses general knowledge to the test. After a competitive streak from Huddersfield Town’s Commercial team, staff from Handelsbanken in Huddersfield proudly took first place at the charity quiz night.
The evening also involved a hot supper and raffle, which had prizes donated by Sheards, KC Communications, P2 Technologies and Huddersfield Town Football Club. All funds raised went directly to the charity that provides breakfasts for children and the young people across Huddersfield and the West Yorkshire area.
Kevin Winterburn, Director of Sheards Accountancy commented: “The turnout for our annual quiz night was the best yet, with some companies submitting two or three teams. The support from local businesses was invaluable and the generosity we received was truly heart warming. Yet again, it was a great opportunity for local businesses to get together socially whilst raising vital funds for such an important charity.”
Local businesses managed to raise a grand total of £1,055, which has guaranteed over 2,000 breakfasts for children supported by the charity.
Mandy Taylor, Fundraising Manager of The Town Foundation quoted: “It was a pleasure to join everyone on the night, to see the venue packed with such a very competitive and kind hearted guest list really did reinforce that the businesses in our community, really do have charity at heart. Our charity partnership with Sheards is one that we value and it is a pleasure to work with them.”
