A charity quiz held in Plymouth raised over £1200 for local charities, the Plymouth Parent Advocacy Project and the Felber Foundation.

The event was organised by a fundraising group from a variety of businesses including The Family Law Company, Taurus Clearer Communication, Nash & Co, Wolferstans and GA Solicitors.

It was held at vintage tea parlour and bistro Rumpus Cosy, which provided a delicious spread for the quizzers.

Ollie Jackman of Taurus Communications kept everyone in order in his role as quizmaster. After a tense tie break between Devon Chambers and Kings Bench Chambers, Kings Bench were declared winners.

Raffle prizes, which were generously donated for the event, included a Samsung tablet, Plymouth Raiders tickets and handmade pottery by Chris Godfrey.

One of the organisers, Carrie Laws from The Family Law Company whose team came in third place, said: “We had a full house at the quiz and were thrilled with the total raised for the two charities.

“Both of the charities rely on support from donations like this to carry out their important work in the local area.”

Plymouth Parent Advocacy Project is run by Plymouth Highbury Trust and provides invaluable support for parents being assessed in relation to their capacity to instruct solicitors and conduct proceedings relating to their children, whilst the Felber Foundation aims to inspire families and young people to be more creative, develop skills and have a voice in their community.
