Teams from Eckersley, Handelsbank, Barclays, Baines Wilson, Cumberland Building Society, NatWest, Harrison Drury, Oglethorpe Sturton & Gillibrand, HSBC and JWK Solicitors and Lloyds Bank all took part.


The team from the Cumberland Building Society were crowned champions on the night. The runners up place was decided on a tie-breaker question and NatWest just pipped Handelsbanken to the correct answer.


More than £700 was raised on the night for the Hospice.


Shirley Morch, Head of Finance and Resources from the hospice said. “Support from the local business community is much appreciated and the funds will help provide vital services to patients and families in our local community’’

I personally was touched by Queenscourt and will be forever grateful when they helped me and my family, at a difficult time.”
