Businesses from across Huddersfield came together to take part in Sheards Accountancy’s annual quiz night a fortnight ago (Thursday 12th October) in aid of Kirkwood Hospice.
The event, held at Huddersfield RUFC, raised over £820 for the charity who’s aim is to help to improve the lives of people with incurable conditions. Whether at the Hospice, in the home or out in the community, Kirkwood Hospice make sure that those in their care have the opportunity to live the best quality of life possible and are able to make the most of the time they have left.
Over 20 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.
Kevin Winterburn, Director of Sheards Accountancy commented: “Now in its 5th 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."Kate Leadbeater, Partnership Development Manager at Kirkwood Hospice 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 put in to promote our work within the business community.”
