Poppleton & Appleby quiz night raises £500 for charity

Top business brains in the Midlands have helped to raise over £500 at a charity quiz night.

Poppleton & Appleby, which has offices in Birmingham and Coventry, celebrated 130 years in business by hosting its first charity big quiz night at the Belgrade Theatre in Coventry.

Teams across the Midlands were invited to pitch their knowledge against each other at the contest which included nine rounds covering subjects such as music, history, dearly departed and sport.

Coventry-based PR agency Advent Communications secured victory with 89 points while Handelsbanken Coventry came in at a close second with 85 points.

A charity raffle was also held on the night with all of the proceeds being donated to Macmillan Cancer Support which provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer.

Martin Coyne, of Poppleton & Appleby, said: “Our anniversary quiz night was a huge success with businesses across the region eager to test out their knowledge and raise money for a good cause.

“Some teams showed off their sports knowledge while others aced the history round. The scores were very close right until the last round and we would like to congratulate Advent Communications on their victory.

“We have raised over £500 for Macmillan Cancer Support and would like to thank all of the guests for their generosity on the night.”
