Hewitsons team wins Battle of the Brains quiz fundraiser
The Northants & Bucks Junior Lawyers Division (NBJL) hosted a charity “Battle of the Brains” pub quiz fundraiser on Thursday 4th February in support of Age UK: MK. Ross Cooke, (Construction trainee in MK) the social events officer for the NBJL, organised the event at the Slug & Lettuce MK and was the quizmaster.
The event was a resounding success with the assistance of Karen Norris, Sam Hand and Rosanna Hawking, who also helped to coordinate the collection of prizes and supported the fundraising on the night.
The pub quiz was contested by 12 teams (65 attendees) and after seven tough rounds there was still deadlock. Three teams had come out on top and competed in the impromptu “shout out” sudden death round. On this occasion it was Hewitsons’ Northampton team who were victorious (and won the £50 House of Fraser vouchers)!
£285.75 was raised for Age UK from gate receipts and the raffle; the top prize of which was a four-ball ticket to Whittlebury Golf Club valued at £150.
