More than 40 teams put their brains to the test during a charity quiz night in aid of two good causes.

Just over £12,000 was raised during the Big Quiz at Hereford Shirehall which will be split equally between St Michael’s Hospice and the Hereford Cathedral Perpetual Trust.

The event, kindly supported by Lloyds Bank, was introduced by Daily Mail political columnist Quentin Letts who formed a team featuring his wife, Lois, the Dean of Hereford, Michael Tavinor, and Glyn Morgan MBE, the Perpetual Trust Chief Executive.

The quiz, which featuring rounds on sport, music and 2016, was won by To the Victors the Spoils.

Paddy Nugent, the Hospice’s Community Fundraising Manager, said the evening was a great success.

‘It was wonderful to see so many people attend,’ he said.

‘Together they have helped raise a huge sum for two good causes.’
