Professionals prepare for annual Moore Thompson charity quiz

mark-hildred-prBusiness leaders and professionals from across the East of England are preparing for Moore Thompson’s popular annual charity quiz.

This is the fourth time that the competition, which regularly sees some of the region’s top business brains face off against one another to be crowned the winner, has been held.

This year’s event will take place on 5 October 2017 at the South Holland Centre in Spalding and will raise money for Lincolnshire Autistic Society, which is dedicated to building awareness and understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorders.

This cause was specially selected in memory of Jenny Nicolson, a much loved former tax manager at Moore Thompson’s Spalding office, who passed away in 2016.

Jenny had worked for Moore Thompson for many years and was an extremely enthusiastic quiz aficionado, which is why her colleagues thought it fitting to hold the latest competition in her memory.

Speaking about the upcoming quiz, Moore Thompson’s Managing Partner, Mark Hildred said: “Everyone is really looking forward to this year’s quiz and we already have a number of teams who have expressed a strong interest in taking part in hopes of taking home a prize.

“This year is particularly special for our team in light of it raising money for a charity that Jenny was a keen supporter of and we hope that we will be able to raise a significant amount for this cause.”
The event will also feature a raffle, which will include prizes donated by a number of local organisations and businesses to help rack up the fundraising total.

The Moore Thompson Charity Fund CIO, the firm’s own in-house charitable organisation which hosts the quiz, was officially launched in 2014 and is led by a board of trustees made up of staff members from the firm’s three offices. Last year it raised more than £3,000 for LIVES and Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
