Charity quiz raising funds for vulnerable elderly folk in Solihull

MUCH-NEEDED funds for vulnerable people supported by Age UK Solihull were raised at a law firm’s charity quiz.

Law firm Sydney Mitchell held its 11th quiz and raised more than £3,000 for nominated charities Buddy Bag Foundation and Age UK Solihull.

Karen Moores, Sydney Mitchell partner, said: “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.”

Rebecca Jacob, digital marketing and fundraising officer for Age UK Solihull, said: “We are proud to be able to help our older and vulnerable residents in Solihull and Age UK Solihull would not be able to do this without the support of you all at events such as the Sydney Mitchell Charity quiz.”

Angela Henry, trustee of the Buddy Bag Foundation, said: “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.”

The winner of the 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 second place was No. 5 Chambers ‘Hoof Hearted’ and in 3rd place Eastcote Wealth Management ‘11 Donald Trump’s IQ’.
