It was fingers on the buzzers as teams battled it out at a fun charity quiz night organised by Blanchards Bailey.

More than £500 was raised for the legal firm’s chosen charity, Blandford Opportunity Group, a pre-school for children with special needs. 

The Mayor of Blandford, Steve Hitchings, took part in the quiz, which was the first fundraiser the Dorset-based solicitors have hosted, as he is also a firm supporter of the charity.

Held at Blandford British Legion Club, the event attracted more than 70 people who enjoyed battling it out for the honour of winning and also took part in a charity raffle.

Twelve teams entered the quiz, including friends and family of the Blanchards Bailey team and local businesses such as estate agents, Vivien Horder. The winning team was Quintus Arrius and wooden spoons went to Chalke Valley Misfits, who finished last.

Trainee solicitor at Blanchards Bailey, Carla Phillips, said the quiz was a big success: “The whole event went above and beyond our expectations. We’re thrilled we were able to raise such a significant amount of money for a local charity.

“We had great support from local businesses who donated some wonderful prizes for the raffle, including chocolates from House of Sarunds, Champagne from Marks and Spencer and Goadsby estate agents, and a fantastic hamper from Tesco.

“We truly appreciate all the support we received from the local community and we’re already looking forward to the next event.”
