THE very first Corporate Gala Quiz – raising funds for the Salisbury Hospice Charity – took place on September 22.
Sponsored by Trethowans Solicitors, in association with Salisbury Radio, the event was held at Salisbury Arts Centre.
It was the first year the event was run by Salisbury Hospice Charity after taking over from Salisbury Rotary.
The quiz was attended by more than 15 businesses and raised in excess of £5,000, surpassing all expectations, organisers said.
It featured eight rounds, with topics including film and TV, music, general knowledge and even an ‘Impossible!’ round. Salisbury Radio’s Andy Munns acted as compere and quiz master.
The evening also consisted of a meal, a raffle and an auction, with John Axford from Woolley & Wallis Salesroom as charity auctioneer.
Louise Compton, corporate fundraiser, said: “It was such a fantastic evening, which was enjoyed by all.
“We are thrilled, the event raised such a large amount for Salisbury Hospice.
“I would like to thank everyone for their support, donations and attendance on this fabulous evening. We look forward to planning next year’s Corporate Gala Quiz.”
