Sydney Mitchell raise over 3000 pounds raised for Midlands Charities
Leading West Midlands’ law firm Sydney Mitchell celebrated their 11th successful quiz at The Studio in Birmingham, raising over £3000 for its nominated charities. 90 people took part in the action packed Quiz with Stoo Pittaway, of SpeedQuizzing as Guest Quizmaster. It was a fast and furious event with a few twists. Teams were able to buy chance cards, giving teams the opportunity to leap to first place, add or deduct 10-30 points during the competition.
The winner of the much coveted Sydney Mitchell Charity Quiz Trophy for 2019 was Cornwall Street Barristers ‘Cornwall St Quizzers’ who were fast and accurate on the buzzers in the last round despite Dains ‘the Forlorn Hope’ fleetingly jumping to first place after the chance cards had been applied. Close on their heels in 2nd place was No. 5 Chambers ‘Hoof Hearted’ and in 3rd place Eastcote Wealth ‘11 Donald Trump’s IQ’. Voted best team name waswon by Brewin Dolphin with ‘Don’t EU love me baby?’.
Karen Moores, Sydney Mitchell Partner, commented:
We look forward to the quiz each year and it is great to see so many regular supporters coming year after year. Overall we raised over £3000 from entry fees, raffle and the Chance Cards sold. We thank everyone for their support and to Cornwall Street Barristers for the hamper raffle prize. It was great fun and raising money for two fantastic causes.
Angela Henry, Trustee of the Buddy Bag Foundation, thanked all for supporting the fundraising for their charity.
Thank you to Sydney Mitchell for choosing us as their chosen charity. It is so great to be able to help youngsters flea perilous situations at home and the foundation would not be able to function without the generous support from our sponsors and fundraisers.
