A quiz run by a leading Midlands law firm saw businesses from across the region come together to raise more than £4,000 for charity.

The annual Wright Hassall quiz, held at the firm’s Olympus Avenue offices in Leamington Spa, saw 40 teams put their general knowledge to the test in a bid to be crowned quiz champions, with a team representing Lloyds Banking lifting the trophy.

This year marked the 17th year of the quiz, with proceeds raised on the night donated to the Wright Hassall Charitable Trust which supports good causes in the local area or and those with which a member of staff at the firm has a close involvement.

Each team was joined by a member of the firm’s staff, with partner Lucie Byron leading the way for the Lloyds team ‘The Boys from the Black Horse’. She said: “Our annual quiz night is always a pleasure to be a part of and there was a great atmosphere once again amongst the competing teams.

“It was a close call in the end but the Lloyds Banking team and I were delighted to finish the night as winners.

“The most important thing is that we managed to raise money for the Wright Hassall Charitable Trust and contribute to good causes in our area.”

Other teams on the night represented companies including accountancy and advisory firm BDO, insurance firm Gallagher, and Wasps, with which Wright Hassall signed a deal last year to become the club’s legal partner.

Sarah Perry, managing partner at Wright Hassall, said: “We are proud to have been able to raise such a significant amount of cash for our charitable trust through another successful and enjoyable event.

“We would like to thank everyone who came along for making the night such a success.”
