Leading Hull-based accountancy and business advice firm, Smailes Goldie Group, has raised thousands for the HEY Smile Foundation, with its Big Fat Quiz of the Year.
A total of more than £2,000 was raised by the 16 teams that took part in the quiz on Thursday 2 March 2017, with questions covering music, sport and world news, as well as Hull in 2016, testing participants’ grey matter.
The team from Emmerson Kitney/Smailes Goldie Financial Recruitment emerged victorious at the end of the evening, with Towne Lifting and Testing and Natwest both hot on their heels in second and third places respectively.
The HEY Smile Foundation is a Hull-based charity that works with businesses to equip other charities, volunteers groups and community organisations with the resources they need to succeed.
Ian Stocks, Commercial Manager at Smailes Goldie Group, said: “Everyone here at Smailes Goldie Group is delighted that we have been able to raise such a good sum for a very deserving cause.
“We would like to thank everyone who took part in what was a great success, both financially and socially.”
Sarah Shepherdson from the HEY Smile Foundation added: “The atmosphere was incredibly tense at times, but it was clear that everyone had a great night at Tickton Grange, and to raise over £2,000 really was a fantastic effort by all.
“The winning team was thrilled to win the first table at Smile’s 2017 Red & Black Ball in November this year.”
