NSPCC is double winner at Annual Higgs & Sons Quiz

A Midlands law firm held its annual charity quiz last night and raised just short of £4,000.

The Higgs & Sons Charity Quiz returned to Molineux and 40 teams from across the Midlands together raised £3,901 for the NSPCC, the law firm's charity of the year.

It was a double success for the national children’s charity – the NSPCC team were also the winners on the night!

The annual quiz is a highlight in the Higgs calendar. Teams made up of Higgs' clients, professional contacts, suppliers and colleagues from across the Midlands, gathered at the WV1 restaurant at Molineux stadium to test their general knowledge under the scrutiny of quizmaster and Practice Director John Smith.

Higgs & Sons' Managing Partner Paul Hunt said: "Yet again we had a wonderful turn out from the Midlands’ business community and it was great to see some new teams battling it out at our annual quiz alongside those who have supported us right from the beginning.

"We appreciate the generous support of everyone who attended to help us raise funds for the important work of the NSPCC."

Other events held in support of the charity throughout the year have included dress down days, bake-offs, a fun day and the annual Higgs 6-a-side football tournament.

Amanda Synott of the NSPCC said: "Thank you so much to Higgs & Sons for making us their nominated charity, and for hosting such a fantastic and well-attended quiz - we hope everyone had a brilliant time.

"We receive around 90% of our funding from generous supporters like those taking part in the quiz - amazing people who believe in our work and believe that every childhood is worth fighting for. Big or small, the gifts and donations we receive make a difference to the children and young people we help through our services.”

Each year Higgs & Sons' Community programme supports a range of projects on behalf of its chosen charity of the year. Last year's total of £23,994.66 raised on behalf of the Stroke Association was an all-time high for the Midlands based law firm.
