County business brains tested their wits at our charity quiz

23 March 2017

We staged our fifth annual quiz night on Wednesday 22 March at Cheltenham’s Manor by the Lake, raising more than £2,800 for The Nelson Trust.

Around 170 people took part, racking up over 500 hours worth of brain power for the local charity, which provides support to those recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.

Teams from businesses including Brewin Dolphin, Lloyds Bank and Allcooper took part in the quiz, charity auction and raffle, which had a 70th birthday theme to celebrate the anniversary of Willans’ opening in 1947.

Accountancy firm Hazlewoods LLP took the trophy, knocking last year’s reigning champions Cambray Property Management down to second place. Financial advisers Warwick Butchart came third.

Paul Nurden, divisional director at Brewin Dolphin commented: “(We had a) fantastic night at the Willans charity quiz. Congratulations to them in their 70th year and for putting on such a brilliant event in support of The Nelson Trust. Brewin Dolphin are delighted to be associated with both”.

Jason Maurice, of estate agents Read Maurice, conducted the charity auction which included prizes kindly donated by local businesses.

We hope to reach a target of £10,000 for The Nelson Trust this year through a calendar of fundraising events.

John Trolan, CEO of The Nelson Trust, said: “What a fantastic evening Willans have put on to raise funds for The Nelson Trust. It has been a privilege to work with the team at Willans, especially in this big birthday year! We are so grateful for their support”.

James Grigg, partner at Willans and quiz master, said: “We were delighted to see the venue bursting at the seams and to see an array of local businesses put their brain power to the test in aid of a very worthwhile local charity. Thank you to all who took part, volunteered their time and donated raffle and auction prizes.”
