Local businesses get quizzical to raise more than £3,000 for good causes

Local good causes are set to receive a £3,000 boost after 22 local businesses came together to take part in a charity quiz night, with a team from Norton Peskett Solicitors crowned winners.

Local good causes are set to receive a £3,000 boost after 22 local businesses came together to take part in a charity quiz night, with a team from Norton Peskett Solicitors crowned winners.

A total of £3,113 was raised by the event, organised by the Lowestoft office of chartered accountants and financial planners Lovewell Blake.

One hundred and twenty-seven people from 22 businesses took part in the quiz at the Ivy House Country Hotel – also venue for the annual Lovewell Blake charity ball, which took place in April and raised £4,780.

Both events were raising money for Lovewell Blake’s LB150 Fund, which distributes grants to a range of local organisations.

“We are delighted with the support from Lowestoft businesses for our latest fundraising event,” said Melanie Wright from Lovewell Blake, who was quizmaster on the night. “As well as having a lot of fun, we have raised a significant amount of money which will go straight into the local community in the form of grants for community organisations.”

Lovewell Blake launched its LB150 initiative in 2008 as part of the firm’s 150th anniversary celebrations, with the aim of raising £150,000 in five years. With that target achieved in 2012, partners and staff at the firm decided to continue their fundraising efforts, which passed the £250,000 mark in 2018.
