Businesses from across Huddersfield came together to take part in Sheards Accountancy’s annual quiz night on 20th October in aid of The Town Foundation.
The event, held at Huddersfield RUFC, raised over £740 for the charity who’s aim is to improve the quality of life for young people across Huddersfield and the West Yorkshire area through a number of initiatives including the hugely successful Early Kick Off Breakfast Clubs.
22 teams battled it out to be crowned the Sheards Quiz Champions as Kevin Sanders, Client Manager at Sheards, put together another famously challenging quiz that put local businesses general knowledge to the test.
The evening also involved a hot supper and raffle, which had prizes donated by Sheards, KC Communications, P2 Technologies and Huddersfield Town Football Club.
Kevin Winterburn, Director of Sheards Accountancy commented: “Now in its 4th year, we’re delighted that our Quiz Night is still as popular as ever with another sell out event. The support from local businesses is really appreciated and the generosity everyone who joined us helped raise both valuable funds, and awareness, for a great local charity."
Julie Sheffield, Fundraising Manager of The Town Foundation commented: “Our charity partnership with Sheards is one that we really value and we can’t thank them enough for their hard work and tireless fundraising. To see so many local businesses come out to support our charity at the event was just fantastic and we really appreciate the effort that Sheards go to to promote our work within the business community.”
