Sydney Mitchell Charity Quiz Winners - Dains Chartered AccountantsLeading West Midlands’ law firm Sydney Mitchell celebrated their 12th successful quiz at The Studio in Birmingham, raising almost £3000 for its nominated charities; Age UK Solihull and the Buddy Bag Foundation.

80 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 play Jokers to double up on points on key questions, buy chance cards, that gave teams the opportunity to leap to first place, second place, plus add or deduct 10 points during the competition.

The winner of the much coveted Sydney Mitchell Charity Quiz Trophy for 2020 was Dains Chartered Accountants, ’The Forlorn Hope’  whose musical knowledge was outstanding, with Eastcote Wealth Management in 2nd place ‘Donald Trump’s IQ closely followed by Prime Accountants ‘Primal Scream’ in 3rd place.

Karen Moores, Sydney Mitchell Partner, commented:

We all enjoy the fast and furious quiz and helping raise money for our charities.  There were a few new faces this year and great to see so much healthy competition throughout.  Almost £3000 was raised from entry fees, raffle and the Chance Cards; it is wonderful to see everyone being so generous in support of the charities. Thank you also to Cornwall Street Barristers for the £50 Lasan Gift Voucher raffle prize.

Rebecca Jacob, Digital Marketing and Fundraising Officer for Age UK Solihull, thanked all quizzers:

We thank Sydney Mitchell for their continued support of our Charity.  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 the local community and businesses.

Karen Williams, Founder of the Buddy Bag Foundation, added:

Thank you to Sydney Mitchell for choosing us as their chosen charity. We would not be able to function without the generous support from our sponsors and fundraisers.
