The annual Swindon Sports Quiz, organised by chartered accountants Monahans, has raised £1,550 for local charity Prospect Hospice.
The event saw 41 teams from businesses across the area come together in a fiercely fought battle of sporting eggheads, with Intel’s Foregone Conclusion team taking the top spot, narrowly winning by two points.
The quiz, which has been running for over 20 years, includes rounds on general sports and historical sporting achievements, as well as special rounds on major sporting events – this year the Rugby World Cup being the focus. There was also a raffle on the evening.
Dale Mitchell, Client Portfolio Manager at Monahans, said: “The quiz is now a staple event on the business social calendar in Swindon and to see such a large number of businesses go head to head again to take the top spot and raise money for a worthy cause too is great.
“It was a close-run competition this year, and so from everyone at Monahans I would like to say well done to Intel’s team, Foregone Conclusion.”
Prospect Hospice is Monahans’ Swindon charity of the year and proceeds from the quiz will be added to monies already raised and presented to the charity at the end of the financial year.
