Two teams of Woolley and Wallis staff pooled their knowledge to take on other local firms and groups at the Salisbury Hospice Grand Quiz last night.
As sponsors of the event, Woolley and Wallis were up against twelve other teams in the annual event at Salisbury Guildhall, with the quiz led by professional MC and toastmaster, Verity Bartlett. The evening included a two course dinner and ended with an auction hosted by Ned Cowell, our Head of Medals & Coins, Arms & Armour, with lots donated by other local businesses including Howard’s House Hotel, jeweller Suzanne Ball and Salisbury Escape Rooms.
Despite a valiant effort (and not too many arguments) one of the staff teams was just pipped to the winning post by a combination of staff from estate agent Strutt & Parker, and tax specialists Smith & Williamson.
The evening raised £8,000 for the local hospice charity, which needs to raise around £1.5m a year to enable it to provide palliative care, emotional support and various therapies for those in need across the area.
