Back and better than ever19th September, 2014
Twenty-two teams took on ten rounds of trivia in Telford – and all in a bid to grab one prestigious trophy.
Telford’s Brainiest Business quiz is always a popular event, and this year it was a complete sell-out.
Organised by Telford Business Partnership, the annual challenge took place at the Priorslee campus of the University of Wolverhampton, and it went down to the wire.
Triumphant winners were the Shropshire and Mid-Wales Insurance Institute, who snatched victory on a sudden death tie-break, making NatWest Nomads the unlucky runners-up.
TBP Chairman, Robin Melley, said: “It really was a fantastic night, made all the more exciting by the nailbiting finish. There was a terrific atmosphere, and we’re truly grateful for the support shown by the local business community.”
Each year Telford Business Partnership nominates a chosen charity to benefit from its fund raising efforts, and this year’s cause is Ketley Good Companions, in Telford, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
“Thanks to the incredible generosity from so many people on the night, we have raised close to £3,000 for this brilliant charity which makes such a difference in the lives of so many elderly people in the local area,” said Robin.
Barbara Evans, from Ketley Good Companions, said she was overwhelmed by the support.
“We’re just so grateful that TBP even considered us as their chosen charity and this money will make a huge difference to our members and the activities we can now plan going forward. I am thrilled to have seen so many people enjoying such a great night out and all in aid of our group – it really was quite emotional for us.”
Telford Business Partnership is a growing network of business and professional service companies, promoting the diversity and quality of their services to local companies and those relocating in the area.
