Law firm Wilkinson Woodward, which has offices in Huddersfield, Brighouse and Halifax, raised £1,400 at a charity quiz night for Overgate Hospice.

The event, at The Shay Stadium in Halifax, was attended by over 100 people and attracted teams from across Kirklees and Calderdale.

The successful quiz, with teams of up to six people, all competing for ‘bragging rights’ to be announced the overall winner, has become a popular annual event.

Companies and individuals from across the region also donated 41 prizes for the raffle, which in itself has become something of a ‘must enter’ event, as the prestigious prizes are highly sought after.

Maureen Cawthorn, managing director at Wilkinson Woodward, said: “It was wonderful to see so many people support such a worthwhile cause. Colleagues, clients and friends all united to raise money for Overgate Hospice.

“The work the hospice does in the local community is amazing, we want to do as much as we can to support them and the quiz is just one of the things we do for them. So many of us have been touched by people affected by cancer and other life-limiting illnesses.”

Louise Iredale, corporate fundraiser at Overgate Hospice, said: “We had a really enjoyable evening. The quiz, as always, was very well organised and attended.

“We not only want to thank everyone at Wilkinson Woodward for making it happen but also everyone who attended, to participate in a very enjoyable quiz, not to mention all the companies and individuals that donated the marvellous gifts for the raffle prizes.”

Wilkinson Woodward has been part of the local community since 1886 and supports a variety of charities and causes throughout the region.
