Woodcocks Haworth and Nuttall Solicitors (WHN) has bolstered the funds of two Bury charities, raising around £2,600 through its annual charity quiz night.

The event, held at Stables Country Club in Bury, was attended by more than 80 of WHN’s partners, clients and staff who formed 15 teams and fought it out over seven rounds hosted by WHN’s quizmaster and CEO Michael Shroot.

Manchester-based barristers and legal services providers Kings Chambers were crowned the winning team, pipping Bury accountancy firm Horsfield and Smith (second) and Bury Hospice (third) to top spot.

The funds, which were raised through entry fees and raffle tickets, will be split between Bury Hospice and Bury Society for Blind and Partially Sighted People, WHN Solicitors’ two nominated charities for this year.

Michael Shroot, CEO, WHN Solicitors, said: “WHN is a firm dedicated to making a positive impact in the communities we operate. I’m proud that we have been able to work with our clients and partners to make a small difference to two organisations which do such notable work in the community.

“We have hosted our charity quiz night for several years now and as well as allowing us to help the local community, it’s also a great way for local organisations to meet new contacts and expand their network.

“We have received some great feedback on this year’s event and are already planning for next year.”
