Charity quiz hosted by hlw Keeble Hawson hailed a great success

26th September 2017

Charites from across the Sheffield region put their general knowledge prowess to the test in a special charity quiz challenge organised and hosted by hlw Keeble Hawson.

The event at The Showroom accelerated the fundraising goals of the top three teams by £400 in total - with the winners scooping £250. First place went to Sheffield Children's Hospital's The Children's Hospital Charity, followed by Cavendish Cancer Care, who was awarded £100 - with South Yorkshire's Community Foundation (SYCF) receiving £50 in third place. hlw Keeble Hawson associate, James Alger, compered the vibrant event comprising six rounds of questions on history, geography, music, film and TV, sport and general knowledge. A tiebreaker was needed to determine the second and third places. Each team of six taking part also received a bottle of champagne to boost their own fundraising initiatives. Partner and head of the firm's charity sector group, Michele Todd, said: -We wanted to raise money for, and promote awareness of, the inspirational work of these organisations who tirelessly fundraise for their respective causes. The quiz was a fun event which achieved both objectives. -Many thanks to sponsor, Yorkshire Bank, for providing drinks and The Showroom for donating its fantastic function room. A great time was had by all and we already have plans for a second competition challenge soon. hlw Keeble Hawson is one of the region's largest law firms with offices in Sheffield, Leeds and Doncaster. A champion of giving back to its local communities, the practice has contributed over 400 pro-bono hours since June 2015 to wide-ranging charities across Yorkshire.
