Annual Centurion Charity Quiz in aid of The Wallich

29.10.2019

Our 5th annual charity quiz event, was held at Cardiff Metropolitan University Students’ Union, which raised £857 for The Wallich to help continue the vital work they do in preventing homelessness in Wales.

The winners on the night were Acuity Law Practice, with a Centurion VAT team finishing in a close second place.


Andrea Brindley, director at Centurion VAT Specialists, said:

 We had a fun-filled evening, bringing our clients together and raising some much-needed funds for The Wallich.

The money raised will help with the fantastic work that The Wallich do, providing accommodation and support services for homeless and vulnerable people across Wales.

 
Mike Walmsley, Corporate Fundraising Manager at The Wallich, said:

 “The annual Centurion VAT Quiz has become a signature event in The Wallich fundraising calendar. It’s certainly one of my favourite nights and has raised just under £6,000 to support people experiencing homelessness over the last five years. Well done to all teams past and present for your knowledge and generosity.”

A special thank you to our Quizmaster, Paul Thompson who did a wonderful job helping to make it such a fun evening and to Cardiff Met Students Union Zen Bar.

We would like to also thank everyone who entered a team or made a donation to our cause; Acuity Law, Hugh James LLP, South Wales Chamber of Commerce, Blake Morgan LLP, Freshwater, Eversheds Sutherland LLP, Hugh James Solicitors, Wendy Hopkins Family Law Practice and Heron House Financial Management.

We were also extremely grateful to those who donated some fantastic raffle prizes; Flamgard Engineering Ltd, Newport Gwent Dragons, SET Office Supplies, Coldra Court Hotel, Greenmeadow Community Farm, The Welsh Whisky Co, PA Promotions, The Welsh Netball Squad and others.

Thank you to all for taking part.  We had a fantastic evening packed with lots of fun and laughter. We look forward to seeing you all next year for the 2020 re-match!
